David Blaine Height

"As children we believe that anything is possible, the trick is to never forget it."

~ David Blaine

David Blaine might just be the greatest illusionist, endurance artist, and extreme performer of our time -- we can at least call him a great magician for sure.

Where his physicality is concerned, David Blaine can be called to be in a good shape. Where his height is concerned, he is tall but not too tall.

In a TED talks video, David Blaine mentioned his height as 6-feet-1 inch. That must have been his official measurement for training to... what became later known as his 17-minute breath-holding record.

But we believe that measurement must have been in shoes (as the majority of celebrities' measurements are), because after carefully looking at Mr. Blaine and comparing his height to that of people like Jamie Fox (5'9½"), Jimmy Fallon (5'11½"), Leonardo DiCaprio (5'11½"), Barack Obama (6'1"), we think David Blaine looks more like a flat 6-feet tall guy -- rather than an inch above it.

Though his bad posture might be making him look shorter than he really is.

The real height of David Blaine is

6" or 183 cm
