Michael Grandinetti is not your ordinary magician.
With performances on national and international television, in stadiums, arenas, casinos, and theaters around the country, with Oscar-winning composers and symphony orchestras, for NFL and NBA halftime shows while surrounded by 70,000 people, in major national parades, and even at The White House, Michael has made a name for himself around the world as an extremely talented and innovative illusionist.
Over the past 20 years, Michael has been driven to make magic contemporary and to give it a wide, mainstream appeal. He has had starring roles on NBC’s “The World’s Most Dangerous Magic II”, The CW’s “Masters of Illusion”, and Pop TV’s “Don’t Blink”, and his magic has been featured on the Emmy-nominated FOX series “Bones”, “The Today Show”, the 2015 “Hollywood Christmas Parade”, “The Bold and the Beautiful”, “Access Hollywood”, “Entertainment Tonight”, “SportsCenter”, “NBA on TNT”, “FOX & Friends”, and “The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon”. Michael has also appeared as a guest on radio shows across the country and in media including Parade Magazine, Starpulse, The Huffington Post, MAGIC Magazine, Young Hollywood, Pittsburgh Magazine, Tucson Living, DC Life Magazine, and The Marilu Henner Show.
Michael was recently featured on CNBC’s “Make It”, a series about people who have achieved success in challenging industries, as well as the cover of TV Times magazine, released nationally in newspapers across the U.S. In addition, Entertainment Weekly named Michael as “a great magician who can truly communicate with a TV audience” and Hidden Remote called Michael a “fan favorite…with charisma and an easy rapport with an audience”.
Possessing a true passion for amazing live audiences, Michael has performed at a wide range of venues including Heinz Hall with renowned composer Marvin Hamlisch and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City and San Diego, United Center in Chicago, Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA, Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, Casino Rama in Ontario, Canada, Grand Central Station in New York City, the Four Seasons Resort in Lanai, Hawaii, on the red carpet of ESPN’s ESPY Awards at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, and at The White House Easter Celebration. Michael was also honored to be the first illusionist ever invited to perform in the National Independence Day Parade in Washington DC. During this remarkable celebration of our country, Michael levitated a girl high above one of the floats as it moved down Constitution Avenue, while a live audience of 250,000 people lined the streets.
