I'm excited to share the news of the success of our most recent illusion.

On June 23, 2006, before a crowd of over 10,000 people, Mike Schroeder of The Comedy Magic of Mike - http://www.vonmagic.com - made a Hummer appear out of thin air!  The audience erupted in applause when the over 5,000 pound vehicle appeared in a matter of only 3 seconds.

Mike was contacted by the officials of the 2006 US Youth Soccer Midwest Regional Championships to make the Opening Ceremonies in Appleton, Wisconsin exciting and unique.  Mike's mission was to make a Hummer appear in the outfield of the Fox Cities Stadium, where weather, lighting, and audience angles could not be controlled.  The challenge was accepted and the audience reaction was nothing short of pandemonium.

Mike Schroeder is one of the founders and organizers of The Houdini Days Magic Festival in Appleton, Wisconsin.  His career really took off when he was invited to open the Las Vegas Comedy Festival at the Stardust Resort & Casino.  Mike was also recently featured on the worldwide broadcast of "Franz Harary's Magic Planet," which showcased one of Mike's grand illusions.  He has developed an audience following for creating and performing thrilling illusions and death defying escapes.
