You’re about to feel the effect of Michael Carbonara when he brings his wacky antics and tricks to the Vegas stage during Michael Carbonaro Live at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino.

You may have seen Carbonaro shock people on his hit hidden camera magic series, The Carbonaro Effect on truTV. For those who haven’t seen it, Carbonaro uses his inventive tricks on unsuspecting people who have no idea that he is actually a magician. Some of his best illusions include making a car disappear from under a security guard’s nose and making alien crabs transform into kittens in a science lab.

Carbonara began dabbling in magic in his youth. He eventually went on to study experimental theater at New York University with the aspirations of entertaining audiences through a variety of theatrical mediums, including hidden-camera magic. This idea was later brought to fruition when the magician showcased his idea on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

This eventually led Carbonara to create his show, The Carbonaro Effect. And now he’s bringing the hit series live to Las Vegas. Michael Carbonaro Live! will bring the same jaw-dropping tricks from the show to the stage along with audience interaction, hilarious video clips and more.

He has been awarded the “Outfest Best Actor” award as well as the “Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts in 2015. In 2016, he was the inaugural recipient of the Copperfield Prize, which recognizes an individual for elevating the art of magic.

You’ll feel the effect of Michael Carbonaro May 26, 27, June 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, & 10 at the Saxe Theatre at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino. You can find discounted tickets to the production here on Best of Vegas.
