WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

the best kids magician in the world!!

David Blaine

From a robotic monkey sideshow to spinning lapel flowers, Mario builds it all himself, a skill honed on the road that not only has gained him recognition in America’s maker movement but also factors into the business’s philosophy itself.

The Huffington Post

From the moment Mario the Magician came out on stage he had every single child's attention. His slapstick comedy routine was modern and edgy... I haven't laughed like that in a long time. It was brilliant.

BroadwayWorld.com

Bar none the best children's performance I have ever seen at the mountain house. He was the most engaging, energetic family appropriate performance, and the audience went wild. 213 thrilled guests.

THIS GUY IS TERRIFIC. The real deal. He's more than just a magician.

Vincent D'Onofrio

This is no garden-variety birthday party act. Mario is a full-service, hilarious, illusion-making, side-splitting one-man-band of entertainment value who brings the party wherever he goes.

Ana Gasteyer

He had the kids enthralled with his incredibly inventive magic and in fits of laughter too. Check him out!!!

Jonny Lee Miller

actor

Mario is unlike any other entertainer I've ever seen! His mix of charisma, talent, and kindness made my son's 5th birthday an event STILL talked about by the kids and their parents...

Drew Powell

He was fantastic, a magician at heart. Magic is his labor of love and it shines through in his performance.
