Awards like third place in the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas, Best of Westchester Magazine, and the Lance Burton Award of Excellence in Magic don’t appear out of thin air, but at Vinny's show, something surprising undoubtedly will.

Mike Patrick

PRE-SHOW CLOSE-UP MAGIC BY:

MICHAEL PATRICK - The "Kevin Smith" of Close-Up Magic

Mike Patrick invented magic over 9,000 years ago in an attempt to describe the overall concept of awesomeness. Obviously, he succeeded because his magic can only be described as "truly outrageous." He blends his magic with his bizarrely encyclopedic knowledge of everything on the Internet and TV to create magic with an unfathomable amount of pop culture references. Imagine Kevin Smith doing magic tricks (only A LOT sexier) and you are on the right track. He performs regularly at private events all over the planet, and at Ninja New York, where he enjoys dressing like a ninja and rambling incoherently about He-Man.
