The Carbonaro Effect - Thursdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)

truTV's new series The Carbonaro Effect stars Michael Carbonaro, a magician by trade but a trickster at heart. In each episode of this hidden-camera series, Michael amazes and amuses ordinary unsuspecting people in various locations and situations. Posing as an ordinary bartender or a seemingly unremarkable salesman, he astonishes unknowing citizens by turning a tuft of hair into a puppy or pouring 12 pints of beer from an ordinary bottle. Whether they are alone or with their friends, everyone is left stunned and delighted, even though they have no idea what just hit them. Real people. No camera tricks. Just The Carbonaro Effect.

Actor, magician, comedian and improv artist Michael Carbonaro is a familiar face to television viewers thanks to his appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He has also played roles on Happily Divorced, The Newsroom, 30 Rock, Wizards of Waverly Place, CSI: Miami and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He is an OutFest Best Actor Award winner, as well as a two-time nominee for an Academy of Magical Arts Magician of the Year award. Michael hosts and performs shows of comedy, magic and other bizarre acts at a variety of clubs worldwide, including NYC's Joe's Pub and Hollywood's Magic Castle.

The Carbonaro Effect is produced for truTV by Fields Entertainment and 11 Television, with Simon Fields, Kevin Healey & Michael Carbonaro serving as executive producers.
