Broken Wand : Aldo Colombini
Aldo Colombini moved to the United States from Italy in 1993 and took the country by storm. He had performed in 52 countries including every European country, the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia, South Africa, China and South America for both children and adults.
He was a F.I.S.M. prize winner, one of the most prestigious awards in the world of magic.
He performed often on Italian television (RAI 1) and has also appeared on television shows in Portugal, Spain, Japan, Colombia and Sweden. Aldo dazzled audiences of all sizes … from as small as 2 or 3 people with his amazing close-up magic to groups of 1000+ with his entertaining comedy and charismatic and magical stage presence.
Aldo performed often at Caesar’s Magical Empire at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas and was a regular performer at the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, where he is one of few magicians who are able to perform in all four showrooms.
When he was onstage, audiences from all over the world were mesmerized by his wonderful mix of magic, comedy and Italian charm.
In the history of the Magic Castle is the ONLY magician to be nominated in all six categories: Comedy, Stage, Close-up, Parlor, Bar Magic and Lecturer.
Aldo was voted by the Academy of Magical Arts twice Parlor Magician of the Year, nominated for Close-up Magician of the Year, Stage Magician of the Year, Bar Magician of the Year and for Comedy Act of the Year. He appeared on Masters of Illusion, a series of weekly magic specials airing on PAX-TV. And, if all that wasn’t enough, he spoke Italian, English, Spanish and French and could perform in all four languages allowing him to dazzle audiences from diverse backgrounds.
Aldo was in demand by major companies who entertain clients from around the world. Besides bewildering audiences large and small, Aldo has written and published many books on magic and created many magical effects used by magicians all over the world. He also lectured on magic worldwide and was nominated by the Academy of Magical Arts twice as Lecturer of the Year. He also entertained children all over USA every year with his highly praised magic school show assemblies.
He produced, published, manufactured and distributed wonderful quality magic products through his former company, Mamma Mia Magic, and more recently with Wild-Colombini Magic.
