“I have a very short list of performers I could watch rock a crowd forever. Mike Pisciotta is on my top five list.” – Eric Jones
“It’s great to see a DVD that’s full of real world, really workable, great magic. I’ve seen Mike absolutely slay people with everything on this DVD.” – – Bill Herz
“If pure magic, blooming effortlessly in moments and surprises, without ego, hype or pretense was a lost art, Mike Pisciotta has found it.” – Michael Carbonaro
“Mike Pisciotta knows the real work on successful close up magic. When a VIP visits the Magic Castle, they close off the Hat & the Hare and bring them down to see Mike Pisciotta perform his miracles because, when it counts, you don’t mess around. You bring out the big guns, and Pisciotta’s hard hitting, original material IS the big guns.” – Derek Hughes
“The World-Famous Magic Castle bar-magician-extraordinaire, Mike Pisciotta, is (to my consternation) sharing a routine that, so far, he’s only taught to me; and now, with you, The Devil Makes Three.” – Paul Vigil
