C3 Entertainment, Inc. announced a new license to represent acclaimed illusionist and magician Michael Grandinetti currently a regular on the CW ‘Masters of Illusion’ TV show for licensing and merchandising.
Grandinetti headlined the nightly production show ‘Masters of Magic’ at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada. Performing on the world’s largest indoor stage, his illusions and magic included making a 500 pound motorcycle to appear in mid-air.
Last year, Michael was honored as the first illusionist ever invited to perform in America’s Independence Day Parade in Washington, D.C. During this national celebration, Michael levitated a girl high above one of the floats as it moved down Constitution Avenue while an audience of 250,000 lined the streets.
Ani Khachoian, C3’s Executive Vice President of Licensing & Consumer Products said ‘Michael is not only a world renowned illusionist and magician; he is a true entertainer. He combines cutting edge magic and illusions with music, comedy, suspense, romance, and audience participation to create a live performance presented with a fresh, contemporary, engaging style. ‘
Continuing she said ‘Through his work, Michael is making the ancient art of magic modern, innovative, and exciting while showing audiences around the world that nothing is impossible. Besides his regular appearances on the CW’s ‘Masters of Illusion’, Michael has performed and has been featured on the ABC Family Channel, Entertainment Tonight, Fox News and NBC.’
Michael has performed at Heinz Hall with Oscar-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Grand Central Station in New York City, John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, VA, the Cerritos Center For The Performing Arts in Los Angeles, Navy Pier in Chicago, the Four Seasons Resort in Lanai, Hawaii, on the red carpet of ESPN’s ESPY Awards at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, and at The White House Easter Celebration.
