Genre: Master Illusionist
Michael Grandinetti may be the most exciting illusionist your audience will ever experience. His “Tower of Flaming Spikes” was shown on the NBC special “The World’s Most Dangerous Magic II” as he was one of seven of the world's best illusionists featured on the show.
Over the years, Michael's incredible magic has been featured on “Entertainment Tonight”, “New York Today”, “FOX & Friends”, “Crook & Chase”, “The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon”, and the NBC television special “The World’s Most Dangerous Magic II”. Michael made a 500 lb. Harley-Davidson motorcycle appear in mid-air, brought a painting of a beautiful woman to life, levitated on the point of a razor sharp sword and burned a woman in half. Talk about your audience ooh's and aah's!
"With his original creation “The Tower of Flaming Spikes”, he was covered with a mixture of gasoline & kerosine and secured by chains; he had only sixty seconds to escape before two walls of flaming steel spikes were thrust towards him at over 50mph. Mission accomplished.
In addition to performing before celebrity-filled galas, television specials, corporations and college campuses, Michael has performed over 150 shows at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. When ABC Family wanted to promote their “World Magic Awards” tv special, he was contacted to create and stage spectacular live demonstrations throughout New York City. During live New York City events, crowds at Grand Central Station, Central Park, and Rockefeller Center watched in amazement as Michael levitated a woman while completely surrounded on the busy Manhattan streets. Similarly, Michael caused a girl to float high above the Santa Monica Beach in California.

“We thoroughly enjoyed having you perform for our client and quite honestly I can’t remember any performer being quite as accommodating and such a pleasure to work with both in advance of the event and on the performance day. You are a true pro (and your team as well). You were such a hit.”
- Southwest Airlines Anniversary Gala
“Abracadabra is no longer the appropriate way to conjure up a spell. Magic has found a new catch phrase and it goes ‘Michael Grandinetti!’ With a mind of illusion and a charming smile, Grandinetti made burning a woman in half look effortless. The audience was smitten, chanting their ooh’s and aah’s.”
