Hi, I'm Mike!

Cards800Mike Rose has been a professional performer all his adult life. Bitten by the magic bug at the age of eight with an Adams Abra-Cadabra Magic Set (which he still has!), Mike has spent most of his life learning about and acquiring magic. In addition to the usual performances at dinner theaters, comedy clubs, festivals, and corporate events, some notable performances have been at the Presidential Inaugural (2004) and at the Vice Presidential Mansion for former Vice President Al Gore and Mrs. Gore on several occasions.

When not performing or collecting magic, Mike studies and writes about magic history. In addition to several contributions to magic journals, Mike wrote and published the book, Joe Karson – Beyond Zombie, a biography of one of the most creative magical inventors and performers of the first half of the Twentieth Century. Mike is currently working on a biography of Al Wheatley, a.k.a. Chop Chop (if you have any material pertaining to Wheatley feel free to get in touch with Mike).

Mike’s favorite expression is “What the Monkeys!” Or WTM if texting.

If you have any questions or want to make a purchase don’t hesitate to get in touch!
