Comedian and magician Michael Carbonaro has one goal in mind: make people believe the unbelievable. The host of The Carbonaro Effect on truTV — in which he performs tricks on unsuspecting people and records the results on hidden cameras — Carbonaro turns up the antics whenever he’s onstage. His shows feature a potent blend of audience interaction, video clips and, of course, magic.
