Introducing Michael Carbonaro: the man who combines comedy and magic! The result? Hilarious!

Who is Michael Carbonaro? You may recognise him from his times appearing on 30 Rock, The Newsroom, Disney Channel's Wizards of Waverly Place and many other notable shows. Did you know he's not just an actor by trade, but has a knack for comedy and magic tricks too? Yup, you can watch him on season 4 of The Carbonaro Effect from Friday, 20 July at 19:20 on Discovery Family and streaming on DStv Now

Carbonaro goes incognito and performs ingenious tricks on unsuspecting members of the public in everyday situations – and it’s all caught on hidden camera. Just like all magic, everyone is left stunned and delighted, even though they have no idea what just hit them!

On the new season of The Carbonaro Effect the jokes are more insane, the tricks are more incredible, and the reactions are bigger than ever. From stunning customers in shops to pranking celebrities, one thing is certain: there is nothing ‘everyday’ about Michael’s world!
