Mario O - Magicians
In October 2008, Mario O. made the Head Men's Basketball Coach of Marshall University appear "out of thin air" at half court of the Henderson Center. Little did any of the 2,000+ fans in attendance that night know, it was the first time Mario had ever performed a large illusion or performed in front of more than a few dozen people. Little did Mario know, he would be on state-wide television less than a year later as a featured performer at the 2009 Miss West Virginia Scholarship Pageant.
Over the last few years, Mario has become one of the most in-demand magicians on the east coast. He has performed at casinos like Hollywood Casino and the Greenbrier Resort; major colleges and universities including Shenandoah University, Marshall University and the University of Central Florida; countless fairs and festivals; five-straight appearances at the Miss West Virginia Scholarship Pageant; and dozens of radio and TV appearances including his first national TV appearance on the Shotgun Red Variety Show in March 2012. Mario recently performed at the West Virginia Speaker of the House Dinner and even had Governor Earl Ray Tomblin join him on stage.
Whether you're a fan of magic who wants to see a great show or you're looking for great talent to book for your next event, don't miss your chance to see Mario Orsini and "Witness the Impossible."

Strolling: So what is Strolling magic? It's close-up magic performed for small groups of people at a time. It's the same type of magic that you see David Blaine do in his TV specials except he does it on the street so it's called "street magic." Strolling or "Street" Magic is perfect for wedding receptiorns to keep your guests entertained while they are waiting for dinner or for the bridal party to finish getting their pictures taken. Strolling magic is also great for corporate functions, holiday parties or any other events where a formal show isn't required.
Birthday Show: Not your typical kiddie magic show, Mario's Family Show is perfect for all sorts of private parties, including birthday parties, anniversary parties, picnics, sweet 16 parties, graduation parties, and any other private event where you'd like live entertainment. The Family Show, featuring magic, mind-reading and a healthy dose of comedy, lasts approximately 40 minutes.
Stage Show: Mario's Stage Show features magic, mind-reading, a healthy dose of comedy and LOTS of audience participation. Mario's shows are something you experience not just sit back and watch.
