2G Understanding What You ReadRead the passage below. Then answer the questions.The Hip-Hop HoudiniWhen David Blaine was growing up in the 1970s, not a lot of kids aspired to become magicians. From the moment he acquired his first magic trick, however, Blaine knew that he wanted to amaze people for a living. As a child, he became a magic addict, devoting all his spare time to learning and practicing tricks. Shortly after high school, Blaine moved to New York City. He worked as a waiter during the day, and at night, he performed magic at private parties. Blaine’s specialty was close-up magic. He would use simple props like playing cards and cigarettes to astound party guests. From the beginning, Blaine’s style was different from many conjurers. Most magicians at the time had a mirthful approach to their craft. They told goofy jokes and aimed their shows at families.
