Producer/host Bonnie D. Graham welcomes magician extraordinaire Phil Piacentini, founder and owner of The Magic Shop in Hicksville on Long Island, NY since 1974, and his colleague, magician Zach Mandel.
Phil and Zach perform an array of entertaining tricks and illusions on the show, to the delight of the host and crew!
One of Phil's many claims to fame is that popular illusionist Criss Angel "The Mindfreak" got his start at age 12 learning magic from Phil at The Magic Shop! The shop is located at 940 South Broadway, Hicksville, NY 11801-5048. Phone: (516) 822-5074.
Zach Mandel appeared on the show a few years ago, and is now teaching at The Magic Shop.
Thank you to our hard-working production crew, Ben Ratner, Eric Newman, Colette Thaw and Desi O'Kane, plus Cablevision Sr. Tech Jason Hodge. Our crew's dedication is truly "magical"!
