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 halftime shows and major sporting events while surrounded by 70,000 people, for Fortune 500 companies, and even at The White House, Michael has made a name for himself around the world as an extremely talented and innovative illusionist.
He has been featured on NBC’s “The World’s Most Dangerous Magic II” television special, The CW’s “Masters of Illusion” series, Pop TV's "Don't Blink" series, “CBS Sports”, “Entertainment Tonight”, “SportsCenter”, “Pardon The Interruption”, “NBA on TNT", "New York Today", "FOX & Friends", and "The Bold and the Beautiful".

Entertainment Weekly called Michael "a great magician who can truly communicate with a TV audience".
In addition, Michael has pioneered live magic in one of the most challenging environments imaginable, major-league football stadiums, baseball stadiums, and basketball arenas. At Citizens Bank Park, Michael made the 7ft tall, 300lb Philadelphia Phillies mascot, The Phanatic, magically appear in the center of the outfield. At Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium, Michael performed one of the largest live interactive illusions in history when he read the minds of all 45,000 people in the stadium at the same time. This spring, Michael performed the halftime show for the Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship at Barclays Center in New York City and for the Chicago Bulls NBA playoff game at United Center in Chicago, where he levitated at the center of the court while surrounded by a sold out crowd of 22,000 people. Michael’s performance even caused commentators Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley to comment in amazement during the live national broadcast on TNT.
Michael was recently 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, in front of a live audience of 250,000 people.
This is magic on a major scale.
And, with his unique ability to design and incorporate magic to fit any theme, Michael's work has been featured in sales programs, trade shows, and corporate galas around the country, showcasing his client's products, messages, and team members in unique and memorable ways.
