Copperfield Secret Document

How to Pick Up Chicks

11/5/2007 7:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained portions of a secret document from David Copperfield's shows, outlining in extreme detail how the magician's assistants were supposed to rope in the women that David found attractive -- and hold their boyfriends and husbands at bay.

David Copperfield
The document, titled "Show Participation," requires the people who work David's shows to arm themselves with clipboards, a Polaroid camera, a digital camera, brochures of David's islands in the Bahamas and "Blank photo(s) of David (if one of the girls is a scorpion)." "Scorpion" refers to women David brings onstage as part of his act.

The document describes how the assistants need to be heads-up for attractive women whom David can meet backstage after the performance. We're told the plan is to keep boyfriends and husband in the arena, adding "from time to time, boyfriends and husbands will give us a hard time and refuse to stay. If that is the case, try your best to get them to stay and refer to the "What to Say" sheet for help."

And it gets creepier.

According to the document, "On occasion David will have you pull in both scorpions even if he is only interested in one of them, just for comfort."

But wait -- it gets worse. The assistants are told to sell the women before David arrives backstage. They're supposed to say: "Do you know that David has recently bought some islands in the Bahamas? Well they are BEAUTIFUL and we are doing a lot of project (sic) for these islands: Ads, TV, Radio and many other promotions. So we like (sic) to keep in touch with you in case there is a job in the future we think you would be interested in."

According to the document, the women are then supposed to fill out a questionnaire -- "Where are you from... What hotel are you staying in. How long are you in town. Who did you come to the show with? Husband? Boyfriend? Friend?"

And then there's the threatening letter David's lawyer sent to David's employees -- after the investigation was revealed -- telling them they had a duty never to talk about what David was really doing at his show. The plot thickens.

David has been under investigation, after a woman who was in the audience claims he flew her to the Bahamas and allegedly raped her. He denies it.

Are you joking. Elvis would turn over in his grave if he heard an entertainer couldn't pick up chicks at their own event. I bet this guy didn't bag half the babes that the king did. Come on, sounds like somebody trying to get rich off of a well off lonely magician guy.

I don't think he does this to get a date, but I think it feeds his narcissism.

Thing is, if you're not weird and creepy, the line "Hello, I'm David Copperfield" would work often enough, wouldn't it?

Lock him up.
If he's a "real" magician, he'll figure a way out.

Rock stars have been doing this for years, big deal. How can these women not know what this means?

malvolio wouldn't it be easier to hire a hooker? at least you wouldn't have to try to fool them with all this island/show crap. maybe that's the part that turns him on. it would be a lot cheaper to simply have a foot fetish, or something...

Women are all attention whores who will dump their husbands in a second for the chance to get banged by even a third-tier celeb like DC.
They will spread their legs for anyone famous or rich, Dave just has it down to a set procedure to get 2 or 3 at a time.
Good for you, Dave, at least until some broad's husband comes back and cuts your nuts off and shoves them up your ass.
