Michael Carbonaro will be enchanting audiences at the Wellmont Theater.
On June 16, Michael Carbonaro will be making an appearance at the Wellmont Theater, with tickets costing approximately $50 and up. Carbonaro is a magician, comedian, actor and improvisational artist from New York City. He is a graduate of NYU Tisch School of the Arts, where he received a bachelor’s in drama.
He originally rose to fame on the Tonight Show, luring in viewers with his “Magic Clerk” segments. Subsequently, Carbonaro received attention for his popular comedy series The Carbonaro Effect, a hidden camera reality TV show currently airing on truTV.
Carbonaro has become increasingly famous over the years, not only as a result of his television show and magic performances, but also for his roles in TV shows such as CSI Miami, 30 Rock and the hit children’s show The Wizards of Waverly Place. Earlier in his career he made appearances on Law and Order: SVU, Chappelle’s Show and All My Children. Carbonaro additionally starred in the 2006 romantic comedy Another Gay Movie, which earned him the OutFest Best Actor Award.
Those able to make it out to catch Carbonaro on his tour will be able to witness his astonishing talents and also enjoy his witty persona. According to his official website, Carbonaro was recently honored by The Academy of Magical Arts as “Magician of the Year,” thus demonstrating the true skill and expertise he holds in his art form.
“Out of all of the hidden camera shows I’ve seen, I think the Carbonaro Effect is the best one, said Leslie Herring. “It doesn’t feel as scripted, probably because a lot of my attention is also drawn to the hilariously witty and charismatic demeanor of Carbonaro himself.”
Carbonaro is unable to tour often, due to the ongoing filming of his truTV series, so these live performances are a real treat. “When the audience is getting into it at the same time as me and we’re on this ride together, and we have this flow – they’re laughing and I’m laughing – there’s just nothing like that feeling,” said Carbonaro in a recent interview with the Washingtonian.
Tickets to see Michael Carbonaro at the Wellmont can be purchased at the box office, located at 5 Seymour Street, or online via Live Nation.
