About Mario Orsini

Mario is one of the most in-demand magicians on the east coast! It doesn't matter if he's performing in a basketball arena, on a theatre stage, for VIPs or at your private party; he makes MAGIC happen! Always a crowd favorite, Mario performs a quick-witted show featuring magic, mind-reading and a healthy dose of comedy. You and your guests will NOT be disappointed!

We had Mario for our last Holiday Party and he was fantastic! I'd recommend him to anyone for ANY venue! Very professional!

Amazing Night!

By Kristen N. on January 13, 2014

I can't say enough about Mario and what a skilled magician he is! Our company party was a huge success with such a wonderful addition. He really impressed all of our guests with his walk around magic & left us wanting more!
I can only say if you get the opportunity to go see a show or have him at your event, its a MUST. Extremely professional, dressed for our themed event & was very responsive with any questions or accommodations we needed.
Still in awe... Thanks again Mario, looking forward to your next show!

Mario Rocks!

By Blake B. on July 25, 2013

Mario is incredible! We had him come to my son's1st birthday party to perform for the parents and kids. He was a perfect professional, showed up on time and even delayed the show due to our own schedule change. In a word, we were incredulous! His tricks were awesome and we still talk about them and try to figure out just how on earth he did what he did. It just seems to defy that laws of nature and physics to do what he did, but, he did them. I recommend Mario for any size event. Just be prepared to be both highly entertained and flabberghasted. The stunts just don't seem possible, but I guess that's why it's called magic...

Mario is AMAZING!!!

By Heather F. on May 30, 2013

Mario performed at our new McDonald's grand opening in Martinsburg, WV and was a huge hit with the kids and adults! He hung out for 2 hours prior to his actual showmingling with the crowd & performing close up magic. He has a great personality and knows how to excite his audience. The feedback we received from our community was amazing! We hope to have Mario return for future events....You do not want to miss his show!

Highly Talented and Popular Performer

By Colt N. on May 30, 2013

We have had Mario perform at our events numerous times, and he always puts on a great show. His likeable personality and coy humor always make audiences feel like they are part of the show. He is very approachable and great to work with in terms of planning and logistics.

Innovative and entertaining illusionist

By Shannon M. on May 28, 2013

I have had the pleasure of attending two of Mario's shows, the first being 4th grade birthday party. I was expecting magic rabbits and silly long scarves, but instead was surprised to see a very entertaining show filled with "amazing" card tricks and illusions, including a levitating table. After seeing his performance, I booked him for a show at my son's intermediate school (3rd-5th grade). The kids and adults enjoyed it equally. I would highly recommend him for any type of event where you are looking for something unique, unexpected and entertaining.

An event to look forward to!

It's a real pleasure when Mario Orsini comes to our town of Moundsville. His performance is so spectacular that we can hardly wait until he passes back through for another show. HURRY BACK, MARIO!!!!!

Mario is a wonderful magician and illusionist! He keeps his audiences on the edge of their seats, constantly asking the did he do that?? He has a great stage presence and always involves the audience in his shows! He is a great asset to the community and is always involved in community service in our area or some type of fundraiser to help a group in need. In general, he is truly entertaining! Love him!!

Amazing! Astounded!

By Denielle C. on May 22, 2013

Not only is this man beautiful, he is an amazing illusionist and puts his heart into what he does, I've never in this life been more amazed. He's worth seeing, for sure.

First Magic Show Experience.

By Christina W. on May 22, 2013

I had never been to a magic show before in my life. A friend had asked me if I would like to go with her to the show at the strand, I wasn't sure I was going to like it. But, once the show got started and there was music, people singing along, and everyone talking about Mario... I thought this might not be so bad after all. I loved the way he interacted with his audience. I got to be apart of his show also! By the end of the night I didn't want to leave. I wanted to stay and chat with him about his tricks. I wanted to know the secret of magic so bad. After that night, I will for sure be going to his shows again.

How does he do that?

By Stephanie H. on May 21, 2013

The title of of this review tells you exactly what you will be saying to yourself as you watch Mario perform. Many times you watch a magician and you think I know how he did that...he had this here...or that there. But, with Mario even if you are watching like a hawk, you won't see the slip of his hand. He is very funny and relevant to today's world. He values the past and gives credit to the people that influenced him. I've been lucky enough to see him perform 4 times now, each was a different show, each brought unique tricks. If you go see Mario's show you will not be disappointed!!!!

Mario is an engaging and charismatic entertainer who appeals to young and old alike. I've thoroughly enjoyed watching his shows. His talents are comparable to or exceed those of magicians & illusionists I've seen in Vegas. If you decide to attend one of his shows or hire him for your venue or special event, you're in for an unforgettable experience, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

Vegas Mario's one his way!

By Kenny L. on May 17, 2013

"How did he do that?" was my first impression two years ago whenever I saw Mario's show for the first time, and I have been his fan ever since.
Women floating in air, swallowing needles, and tables floating in mid air are just some of the many tricks of the mind performed in front of your own eyes!
As you leave the show you'll see for yourself that this is one magician that will be headlining Vegas one day. You'll be glad you attended his show.

How did he know that?

By Amy C. on May 17, 2013

Mario's performance is smooth yet exciting, and gets everyone's interest! He involves the entire crowd in his performance, and seems to know just what the volunteer on stage is thinking. Some of the things he knew at our show ONLY the person on stage would know. Impressive! We will definitely book him again!

We will for sure be inviting him to other events in the future!!!

Phenomenal Show!

By Ursla J. K. on May 14, 2013

Mario's illusions and magic show is phenominal! Throughout the evening his magic became more and more unexplainable. He engages the entire audience, and leaves the crowd speechless with several of his tricks. I am still at a loss of words on how he can control the outcome of an illusion without even touching it. His "Lock and Key " trick is nothing short of amazing.

I have recommended Mario's show to several people for corporate, community, and private events. I look forward to seeing his show again over the summer, and inviting several friends to experience his talents first hand.

Excellent Performer!

By Kiya T. on May 14, 2013

The City of Charles Town booked Mario Orsini of Sini Magic to do street performances for our annual Heritage Festival. We had so many people tell us after the festival how much they enjoyed the street magic performances! We are hoping Mario will bring Sini Magic back to Charles Town for our next festival!

Mario’s Illusion show is 90 minutes of entertainment and amazement. Featuring large scale illusions, mind-reading, comedy and a finale that will leave you astonished and laughing at the same time, Mario and his beautiful assistants will make you a “witness of the impossible.” Check the Public Show Dates page to see where he’ll be performing next.

Mario’s most popular show is his stand-up family show. The show is fresh and hip with an edgy style and a lot of fun for all ages. The Stand-up/Stage Show includes comedy, magic, mentalism (mind reading), strange stunts, illusions and lots of audience participation. The show is perfect for banquets, fairs, festivals and many other types of events. It is customizable for audiences as small as 30 and as large as 500 plus.

Close-up magic, sometimes referred to as sleight-of-hand, is regarded by many magicians to be the purest form of magic. Mario’s close-up show lasts 30 minutes and is best suited for audiences of 20 or less. You’ll see the magic happen just inches from your eyes!

So what is Strolling magic? It’s close-up magic performed for small groups of people at a time. It’s the same type of magic that you see David Blaine do in his TV specials except he does it on the street so it’s called “street magic.” Strolling or “Street” Magic is perfect for wedding receptions to keep your guests entertained while they are waiting for dinner or for the bridal par

“Mario Orsini is an astounding performer…a rising star” – Candy Reid, Executive Producer, Miss West Virginia Scholarship Pageant

In October 2008, Mario Orsini made the Head Men’s Basketball Coach of Marshall University appear “out of thin air” at half court of the Henderson Center. Little did any of the 2,000 fans in attendance that night know, it was the first time Mario had ever performed a large illusion or performed in front of more than a few dozen people. Little did Mario know, he would be on state-wide television less than a year later as a featured performer at the 2009 Miss West Virginia Scholarship Pageant.

In the last few years Mario has become one of the most in-demand magicians on the east coast. He has performed at casinos like Hollywood Casino and the Greenbrier Resort; schools including Shenandoah University, Marshall University and the University of Central Florida; for charities including March of Dimes, Habitat for Humanity, Parent-Child Center; Family Resource Network and Bartrum and Brown Charities; countless fairs and festivals including Thunder over the Blue Ridge and the WV Italian Heritage Festival; four-straight appearances at the Miss West Virginia Scholarship Pageant; and dozens of radio and TV appearances including his first national TV appearance on the Shotgun Red Variety Show in March 2012. Mario has kicked off 2013 with a bang including performances at the Strand Theatre, Musselman Auditorium, the West Virginia Speaker of the House Dinner and the opening of his new monthly show TRICKS OF THE MIND at Historic Jordan Springs.

Whether you’re a fan of magic who wants to see a great show or you’re looking for great talent to book for your next event, don’t miss your chance to see Mario Orsini and “Witness the Impossible.”
