Following these late-night appearances, Michael was presented with the opportunity to launch The Carbonaro Effect. To date, the show has run for over 100 episodes on truTV.

Michael’s extensive list of accolades includes the “OUTFEST Best Actor” award as well as the Academy of Magical Arts 2015 “Magician of the Year” honor. In 2016, he was the inaugural recipient of the Copperfield Prize, which recognizes an individual for elevating the art of magic.

The Carbonaro Effect

A trickster at heart, Michael’s hit show uses hidden cameras and undercover disguises. While posing as an everyday worker, Michael performs inventive tricks on unsuspecting members of the public. Jaws drop when he causes a car to disappear from under a security guard’s nose or makes alien crabs transform into kittens in a science lab. Whether posing as a coffee shop barista, museum curator, or seemingly unremarkable store clerk, Carbonaro’s illusions – along with his absurd, matter-of-fact explanations – leave people bewildered and families at home laughing out loud.
