Meet the Man Behind the Magic
Richard Passaro first fell in love with magic at the age of 8, after receiving a magic set for Christmas. After studying endless library books on magic, practicing for many hours, and relentlessly entertaining every neighborhood or family friend that would watch, Rich discovered a small magic shop just one town over. There he spent every Saturday morning and afternoon learning from the local professional magicians. He performed his first paying show at the age of 10! Shortly after that he became the youngest local member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring #158.
From there he spent his teenage years honing his art performing his act including live doves, a rabbit, and featuring illusions which included cutting a young lady into three pieces and Houdini’s famous locked trunk escape and exchange illusion known as Metamorphosis.
Richard was influenced greatly in his teen years by magicians like Doug Henning and David Copperfield.
Years of entertaining live audiences at banquets, holiday parties, shopping malls and nightclubs has given Richard the real world experience necessary to take his act to the present level wowing audiences with his elaborate stage illusion show or perplexing them with his jaw-dropping mentalism.
