We had a great experience with Mario and Vicki (Fiddlesticks)! They were both SO great with the kids. The kids (about 24 six year olds) were totally engaged and entertained for the entire show! That is a magic feat in itself:). All of the parents enjoyed it as well. Vicki and Mario were both very concerned with meeting our every expectation - but no worries guys, because you did!! No I'm just trying to figure out an excuse to have them back to so some of their escape tricks! Thanks Mario and Vicki you made my 6 year old birthday girl SOOOO happy!!Dec 16, 2013Verified

Mario offers a close-quarters show which combines a variety of escape and illusion based magic with his own personal charm. He does binding escapes, card magic, levitation, water tricks, and a host of others. His banter with our audience (cub scouts) played to their curiosity and grade-school humor level. He offered to go a little bit over his contracted time since he was in the groove-and just wanted to give the crowd more and more. Our show was a really great value for our budget needs- although I understand he offers higher dollar shows if those are your interest. He's based out of Columbia, MO and commuted for our show in St. Charles for our Sunday afternoon Blue and Gold Banquet ceremonies. Thanks Mario for making bang as our Blue and Gold Banquet finale!Feb 16, 2015Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always reading and studying to be better in my craft. There are many more magical effects that I am practicing and getting ready to add to my show.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I began performing at the age of 16 at Huberts Museum in NYC on Broadway which was the smew place that Houdini began performing at when he was 18 years old. I was doing escape since the age of 6. At 16 I happened to go see the show at Hubert's and my friend told the manager that I was a great escape artist. He tired me out and hired me on the spot. I then added magic to my shows.
- What types of customers have you worked with?We provide our own shows or other types of shows or acts that the client is wanting. I perform for Corporate Events. Performing Arts Centers & Theatres, Colleges, Fund Raising Events, Private parties & Banquets, Fairs & Festivals & more. We can also assist the client on where to get good catering for food, decorations, theme settings, props, costumes, stage lighting & sound, etc. What ever they may need to help them put together their event to make it Unforgettable & fun, we will be here to help or advise them.

Not just to supply live entertainment, but to help the clients event go over in the best possible way.
