A Rhode Island native, Franco impressed audiences week after week during his tenure on America's Got Talent, and subsequently won the reality competition. His distinct card trick in the audition round, coupled with his exquisite storytelling ability, earned him a standing ovation from all four judges: Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Melanie Brown and Howie Mandel.
Particularly impressive about the 27-year-old magic sensation is that he was self-taught in the art of magic. He developed his own shows before the age of 10, and made his first public performance at the age of 15, at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, proving that he is a true prodigy.
Franco has a residency in Las Vegas at The Linq Theater for his "Magic Reinvented Nightly" show, which will kick off on August 5, and fans can obtain tickets to his forthcoming live performances by clicking here.
His "Magic Reinvented Nightly" show is expected to offer a refreshing, fun, witty and feel-good twist on magic, which will surpass all expectations, and it will be grand scale production; moreover, it will include some "up close and personal" moments with his fans.
