Franco's love of magic started when he was a young child at the age of four. Over the past 15 years, Franco has turned his love into a career performing professionally at college campuses, Las Vegas stage shows and corporate events across the country. His shows blend together magic, music and humor.
Franco offers an interactive comedy show that allows your guests to become a part of the magic through music, humor and one-on-one tricks.
In 2012 Franco founded a talent agency that provides magic, comedy and mind reading entertainment for college campuses. "Franco Talent" performers have made appearances on NBC and in Rolling Stone Magazine and The National Inquirer. In 2012 he was nominated by Campus Activities Magazine for the "Fastest Rising Star" award.
