As seen on Sesame Street and Sprout, Mario “the Maker Magician” Marchese is a New York based, touring children’s performer known for his DIY robotic creations, handmade props, and signature slapstick character. He has been touted “the best kids magician in the world!!” by David Blaine and was the opening act for the most recent 2018 David Blaine live tour.

Mario’s show is an upbeat, hilarious, and very interactive experience that leaves children and families inspired to nurture their own creative paths. It’s upbeat, interactive, rock n roll, and hilarious, with the added bonus of incorporating a strong S.T.E.A.M. theme.
