With Siegfried & Roy and Lance Burton endorsing his International Brotherhood of Magicians membership, Sammy Cortino is rocking a new generation of audiences with a fresh approach to the world’s oldest art form.

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 North Carolina hometown’s community theatre. In the following years, Sammy would explore the union of music and drama with illusion.

From taking his show to performing arts centers and serving the corporate market, Sammy has performed internationally; for the likes of notables like Ryan Seacrest and Hayden Panettiere. He holds a Doctoral Degree in Magic from the International Magicians Society. He currently resides in Los Angeles, where he enjoys attending live concerts and works in film.
