Magician, Sleight Of Hand Artist, Entertainer
Mike Paldino is an award-winning magician and performance artist, who is quickly becoming one of the most talked about original acts on the East Coast. Combining elements of sleight of hand, mentalism, sideshow and strength feats, memory work, and bizarre magic, Mike’s show is unlike anything you’ve ever seen, or will see again. His ability to connect with an audience on a personal level garners him praise and ovations. His spontaneity and boundless energy ensures every performance is fresh and unique, even night to night.
While still an undergraduate, Mike wrote, produced, directed, and performed his own one-man show, Demonstrations Of Modern Conjuring. After earning his Bachelor’s Degree in 2000, he began performing full time in and around the New York/New Jersey area, amassing a respectable list of personal and professional clients. In 2005, he was recognized by the Society Of American Magicians (David Copperfield Assembly) for his signature performance piece, “Needles”, his rendition of Houdini’s East Indian Needle Mystery.
See Mike on tour this fall, and find out why Seton Hall University calls him “a consummate professional”, “highly entertaining”, and “a fixture on (our) campus.” Mary Washington University says his show is “unique, challenging, and fresh- the perfect amount of excitement and mystery for a Welcome Week event”, and Bucks Community College (Pa) describes Mike as “a welcome change from the norm- his performance at orientation was an event not to be missed… wholly original!”
Mike Paldino currently resides in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia.
