Mike Pisciotta is an acclaimed performer based in Los Angeles, CA and serves as the resident magician for the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. Mike creates powerful, beautiful moments of mystery, and his performances leave the viewer with a profound sense of wonder.

Mike is recognized by his peers as one of the greatest performing magicians today, and is a two time winner of the prestigious "Close-Up Magician of the Year" award for the Academy of Magical Arts.

Some of the effects Mike will teach include:

Mike's Opener – Showing off a bit of skill, a one-handed cut finds the wrong card, and a fancier cut has the same result. So, the first card changes to the selection.

The Time Lord – This three phase routine is one of Mike’s most requested at the Magic Castle. 

Jokers Thru Time – A card appears face-down among four face-up jokers. This card is set aside. Then, a selected card vanishes from among the jokers. And get this... the card set aside earlier... no, it's not the selected card... it's all four jokers! And where they were a moment ago, that is the selected card. This is Mike’s version of the Alex Elmsley classic Between Your Palms. 

Three Way Play - A real workers coins across. This is Mike’s favorite walk around effect.

Boxing Match – An impromptu card thru box using borrowed decks.

Coming Up – A selected card rises out of the middle of the deck with no gimmicks and no threads. 

Flying Sandwich – A transposition sandwich routine that fools magicians. 

Simple Evanescence – A repeat, no palm card to wallet effect. Super-clean and instantly repeated while the wallet is in full view.

Plus more!
