Mat Franco became fascinated with the art of magic after seeing it on television at age four. Growing up in Rhode Island, Mat learned techniques by studying magicians he videotaped off television, and he continued to hone his craft with performances throughout his teen and college years. He now specializes in creating customized, interactive presentations for his audiences that allow for spontaneity and improvisation. For Mat, magic isn’t about “tricking” or “fooling” the audience; it’s about connecting with people and bringing smiles to their faces. Mat has been entertaining college audiences full-time ever since the day he finished college himself, and now it’s time for the rest of America to see what he can do!  — America’s Got Talent
