CLOSE UP STROLLING MAGIC

A highly interactive experience, involving dozens of audience members with a singular focus of creating a long lasting impression. The show can be custom designed to the need of the client.
We were thoroughly entertained by The Italian. He was charismatic, fully engaged with our guests and simply amazed us all with his magic . He appealed and engaged the kids and the adults equally which is no small feat! Thanks Riccardo for a wonderful evening!
I booked Riccardo as a surprise for a small dinner party for my husband's birthday and he blew everyone away. He was beyond engaging, he involved all of my guests and he was extremely accommodating. I am already trying to figure out the next time I can have him back.
The Italian was a big hit. Everyone was amazed, even the biggest skeptics in the room. Added a great element to our party. Highly recommend
Riccardo was just incredible! He was on time, great to work with and incredibly talented. His show was a mix of a magic show and a mentalist performance. People were blown away! Highly recommended
Riccardo was fantastic! He mesmerized our party with all his magic. He was prompt and charismatic. He did great card tricks and mental magic, his performance was spot on, exactly what I’d hoped for and more. My party goers enjoyed his performance, definitely the highlight if the party. Many of my guests were already making plans to see him again before he was even finished. I for sure will use him for my next event! My husband thanked me several times for the party and added that Riccardo was a very nice touch! My guests continued to talk about him well throughout the night, and trying to figure out how he did his magic.
Thank you, Riccardo!
We hired Mr. Berdini for our holiday corporate party with the intent of entertaining our clients right after our year-end presentation.
Riccardo took the crowd on a different level of entertainment, right before and after the party, he surprised us all with his mentalism skills, our clients were incredibly engaged during the entire night.
I was very pleased by the way he organized the entertainment of the entire night, never leaving a gap of silence, he was able to move around the crowd so fluidly and keep almost 150+ vividly engaged for almost 5 hours. When he closed the night with a grand finale everyone gave him a standing ovation, very well deserved I must say.
Response from The Italian:
Thank you Rolando, I really appreciate your kind words. It was a great pleasure to perform for you! Looking forward to see you again!

What to Expect
My mission is to give you some of the best time of your life with my magic and my Italian passion and charm. Magic is just a tool that allow us to discover more about life. Let me show you how many incredible connections and mysteries are hidden in this beautiful world and let's have fun together!
As a magician I've performed all around the world, including the tv show Penn and Teller's Fool Us on CW and Love Connection on Fox. I'm also a member of the Magic Castle in Hollywood, Los Angeles.
Magic is a great part of my life but I'm also an actor, a director, a stuntman and a composer. Here's something more to know about me:
I started my career in Italy as a musical theatre performer and I've been awarded Best Musical Theatre Performer twice for Jean Valjean (Les Miserables) and Danny Zuko (Grease). I've also had the pleasure to play other fun roles such as: Fonzie (Happy Days), Leo Frank (Parade), Baker (Into the Woods), Tobias (Sweeney Todd). I've been musical and artistic director for some italian hit show such as Musical Stars and I wrote, composed and directed the original musical A Light in the Dark and The Halogen Child.
I finally moved to LA in 2016 and I became a member of the Troubadours Company at the Garry Marshall Theatre in Burbank, performing in many of their shows.
In LA I worked in features and commercials, including a costar role in a Vodafone Commercial with Patrick Dempsey, and a main villain role in the movie BODY OF SIN, directed by Obin Olson (where I also had the pleasure to be the Stunt Coordinator).
As a director, I directed, edited and scored the shorts AWAKENING and THE ORDER and I'm currently the director for the "New York Life Insurance Company" agents and manager's commercials all over the country.
Additional Booking Notes
For a stage magic show I only need a mixer to connect the microphone (I own the microphone).
For a music and magic show I need to connect to the mixer also my guitar.
For everything else I only need a good crowd ;)
