MIKE SUPER NBC embarked on a LIVE television event that had never been attempted before. The network set out to find the world’s next magic superstar. NBC searched the GLOBE to locate the world’s top 10 mystifiers, and then had them compete for America’s vote on LIVE NETWORK TELEVISION. There were no second chances, no retakes, and no room for error! For an exhilarating 6 weeks, the NBC series PHENOMENON was broadcast into MILLIONS of households across the country. In the end, the viewing public voted for their favorite entertainer each week. Ultimately, the fate of the winner was in hands of the viewers at home. With electric performances that reached out and enchanted the American public, including judges Criss Angel, Uri Geller AND a panel of celebrity guests; MIKE SUPER proved he was the best of the best, and was awarded the prestigious title of ‘THE PHENOMENON.’ Through spectacular illusions and his own inimitable down-to-earth style and personality, Mike Super has pioneered a new form of magic that transcends the “trick.” Mike has emerged as magic’s newest celebrity, with a legion of fans numbering in the millions. Mike Super’s life has been characterized by an obsession and passion for magic. He has astonished millions of people with his craft, including the Hollywood elite. Mike has performed for Jeffrey Katzenberg, Jay Leno, Criss Angel, Regis Philbin, Craig Ferguson, Ellen DeGeneres, Disney’s Raven-Symone, Joan Rivers, Garry Shandling and Robin Leach to name but a few! Mike’s ever-growing popularity has garnered him many prestigious awards and honors. Most recently Mike was just named THE 2012 PERFORMING ARTS ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR! Mike was honored by the International Magician’s Society last April where he was presented with the prestigious 2012 Performing Arts Entertainer of the Year award, in front of an enthusiastic 1600+ people crowd! It was a great evening, and this marked Mike officially winning the award BACK to BACK! A rare and impressive Mike Super | Overture Center
