Location: Los Angeles, CA
Genre: Master Illusionist
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”.
Extreme magic examples: Michael has made a 500 lb. Harley-Davidson motorcycle appear in mid-air, brought a painting of a woman to life, levitated on the point of a razor sharp sword, and via his "The Tower of Flaming Spikes" creation, he was covered with a mixture of gasoline & kerosine and secured by chains and had only sixty seconds to escape before two walls of flaming steel spikes were thrust towards him at over 50mph. Mission accomplished. Talk about your audience ooh's and aah's!
Performed over 150 shows at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood.
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.
