Find him way better than crud angel and others to be honest he's a very cool guy

Best guy to watch hands down.

Awesome love the show

Michael Carbonaro astonishes me. And, unlike the rest, without fan fare. His tricks are simple and baffling. And they are on real people on the C'Effect on TRU-T.V.. This is so much better than watching big theater magicians like Copperfield, and way better than stupid street magic punks. Tru-T.V. and Michael are the best. Shout out to JOE, MURR, and Q'. LARRY!

Makes magic look simple. He has all the best skills regarding magic, including the building of the show, and he combines it with great humor and fun.

He is the best showman I have ever seen

Mind reading, psychic ability, or any kind of paranormal activity. That s what his illusion all about. To create these affects, he uses suggestion, psychology, misdirection, and showmanship.

He should move up a few positions... He created the famous Mnemonic stack, used by a plethora of magicians and can manipulate cards with the best of them. Very interesting and by far an underrated magician.

This is the father of modern magic. He stopped a WAR for crying out loud...he was so amazing he inspired Houdini <--- CLEARLY! And he's BELOW Val Valentino?! That's a slap in the face as far as I'm concerned.

Virtually everything we have as magicians came from this guy.

39 Tony Slydini

Anyone of you who voted for anyone else with the possible exception of Vernon obviously has never seen a performance by Slydini. Vernon is the only one in his class. PERIOD!

Sleight of hand,gimmick, grand illusion trick etc... None of them pertains to the real skill of magician. A great deceiver and master of misdirection is. The trick maybe clean and convincing but a great magician does not depend on them.a great magician makes the trick clean trough deceptive routine of actions.If succesfully done, despite watching the trick over and over,sense of wonder endures to the mind of spectator.that is magic

40 Ahmed el Bayed

He is the only arab magician that can perform stunts.doesn't have the word impossible in his dictionary
