Michael Carbonaro was on the show talking about his new truTV's series The Carbonaro effect, carbonaro is a magician by trade but a trickster at heart. In each episode of The Carbonaro Effect, he will amaze and amuse ordinary unsuspecting people in various locations and situations. Posing as an ordinary bartender or a seemingly unremarkable salesman, Michael 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.
