Aside from Mat Franco being the first-ever magician to win on America's Got Talent, this nearly entirely self-taught Rhode Island native began performing his own shows at only ten years old. From there, Franco cultivated an innovative world of magic driven by his intense joy for the trade and for sharing it with his audiences. Taking the magical world by storm, Mat Franco now headlines his own television show as well as performs in live shows that he creates and holds at the very theater that was named after him.
Mat Franco's Rise to Fame
Mat Franco was born in 1988 in Rhode Island and was raised in his childhood home. At the age of four, he became very interested in magic after watching magicians perform on a television show. Nearly entirely self-taught, Franco began performing magic in his self-produced street shows at the age of ten. At age 12 he joined a three-day program in Las Vegas that provided him the opportunity to study under world-famous magicians from NBC's The World's Greatest Magic. After high school and years of honing his magic skills, Franco went to the University of Rhode Island where he obtained a bachelor's degree in the study of Business Administration and minored in communications. During his time at college, Franco performed for his peers, and he quickly discovered that they were the perfect target audience for his humor-infused magic tricks. He then went on to perform in small gigs for colleges throughout the country. After winning America's Got Talent, Franco starred in the primetime TV special Mat Franco's Got Magic. He has also hosted America's Got Talent Live, which was held in Los Angeles. Currently, Franco headlines his own show, Magic Reinvented Nightly, at the Mat Franco Theatre in Las Vegas.
