WELCOME.  I’m Mitchell Rothstein, known as “Magic Mitchell,” and I’ve been working and performing as a professional magician since age 11.  I’ve been featured on CBS, Fox, Fox News, Good Day Philadelphia, the front page of “The Philadelphia Inquirer” (the only magician to do so),  the front page of “The Courier Post” (also a first), South Jersey Magazine, and more.  I perform private, public, corporate, and charitable shows throughout Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York.  For events and bookings, please see my Contact page.

Currently, you can watch me worldwide in over 170 countries throughout Asia, Europe, and Australia on a new show for The National Geographic Channel called “How To Win At Everything,” where they feature the science and technique behind my straitjacket escapes.  Apparently, I hold the unofficial world record for the fastest escape by a child; it’s unofficial because no governing body recognizes a world record involving the restraint of a child, even if it’s supervised.  (Broadcast dates for North America have not yet been released.)

My specialty is close-up magic, particularly cards and cups and balls, parlor magic, and escapism.  I do not use trick decks, “gimmicked,” or rigged tricks and everything I use is always open and available for inspection.

Even though I’ve been lucky enough to perform in some pretty incredible places, what I’m most proud of is my charity work, especially with the Philadelphia Flyers since 2013 and their annual “Fight for Lives Carnival,” and the Ronald McDonald House since 2011.  During the summer of 2015, I had an incredible experience running the “Magic Mitchell’s Kids’ Kamp” at the Ronald McDonald House in Camden where, instead of performing, I taught kids magic and helped them put on their own show.  The kids were amazing… and we’re on again for the summer of 2016 too!

FOX News covered the camp, and it was sponsored by many companies, both near and far, including The Philadelphia Eagles and The United States Playing Card Company. You can see the whole story on my TV-VIDEOS page.

If you have any questions about me or my magic, I would love to hear from you so please reach out to me on my Contact page.

Thanks for visiting!
