With Siegfried & Roy and Lance Burton endorsing his International Brotherhood of Magicians membership, Sammy Cortino is giving audiences the essence of magic: inspiration to follow their dreams. He holds a Doctoral Degree in Magic from the International Magicians Society and is a member of London’s Magic Circle.His first trick: age two. He made a quarter disappear in front of his mom, which was a trick in itself. By age 14, he performed his first stage run at his hometown’s community theatre. In the following years, Sammy would explore the union of music and drama with illusion. Taking this fascination further, Sammy collaborated with Harry Blackstone Jr’s choreographer and producer Murray Phillips to create The Magic Story. The stage show is a historic account of how magic began and has evolved through the ages and includes period performances of magic’s classics.
From taking his show to performing arts centers and serving the corporate market, Sammy has performed all across the nation; for the likes of notables like Ryan Seacrest and Hayden Panettiere. He currently resides in Los Angeles, where he enjoys attending live concerts and also produces film.
