(Palatine, IL) Michael Carbonaro has performed over five hundred comically perplexing and improbable feats of magic on his hit TV series, The Carbonaro Effect, on truTV.  Now, Michael Carbonaro is taking his show on the road and, for a limited time, you can personally feel the effect of Carbonaro… Live!

If you have ever wondered what it must feel like to be on the other side of the charmingly devious Michael Carbonaro as he works his magic to make people believe the unbelievable, this is your chance to find out.  You will not just “sit back, relax, and enjoy the show,” Carbonaro Live! is jam-packed with audience interaction, hilarious video clips, and a whirlwind of mind-blowing magic performed live.  See for yourself why The New York Times calls Michael’s blend of magic and bizarre antics, Genial and witty…utterly convincing.


Due to the year-round demands of his television shooting schedule, Carbonaro can only accommodate a limited number of theatrical appearances.  In his own words, “I’m thrilled to get the chance to connect with fans and do what I have loved doing since I was a just a kid – live magic.”


After years of performing in comedy clubs and school gymnasiums, Carbonaro started winning roles as an actor in both television and film.  This led to a breakout series of hit magical appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  After turning into a viral sensation, Michael’s unique brand of magic performed for unsuspecting people spawned truTV’s hit hidden-camera series, The Carbonaro Effect, currently in its second season.


Michael has also starred in CBS’s Rush Hour, HBO’s The Newsroom, NBC’s 30 Rock, TV Land’s Happily Divorced, among many others.  Michael won the 2015 Academy of Magical Arts’ “Magician of the Year.”


Tickets for Michael Carbonaro go on sale Friday, April 29 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets are available at, the Emens box office, and by phone at 800-745-3000. For more information, please visit or

About John R. Emens College-Community Auditorium
Ball State University’s sixth president, John R. Emens (1945-1968), had a dream. He envisioned a “campus of the future” complete with an auditorium “large enough to house most college functions as well as major symphonies, Broadway productions, ballets, and other forms of entertainment for Muncie and east central Indiana audiences.” Since the grand opening in 1964, many world-renowned artists, individuals, musicians, and shows have graced the Emens Auditorium stage. In its first 25 years alone, more than 3.6 million people visited the then 3,581-seat auditorium to see 2,335 programs.
