Spend your Lazy Sunday watching a very different side of David Copperfield in one of his first television specials - Genii Online

In the '80s and '90s, David Copperfield made a name for himself as a dark, brooding, mysterious figure who made the Statue of Liberty disappear, or asked viewers to play along with magic tricks at home. But back in the 1970s, Copperfield had a whole different energy about him that's much more in line with the variety shows of the day, as you can see in the above video, uploaded to YouTube 34 years after it originally aired. In the 1978 special The Magic of David Copperfield, you can watch the illusionist mug for the camera with the likes of Orson Welles, Bernadette Peters, Carl Ballantine, and more. There are even magical dance numbers! Take an hour out of your lazy Sunday and watch this disco-fueled magic romp, and if you want more, check out the full playlist for the rest of his Magic of David Copperfield specials.
