From the popular TV series The Carbonaro Effect, magician-actor Michael Carbonaro brings his signature blend of side-splitting audience interaction, bizarre antics and mind-blowing illusions to the Majestic Theatre in Dallas. After rising to fame on The Tonight Show during segments that found him using everyday objects to trick unsuspecting customers at a convenience store, Carbonaro was handed the keys to his own show in 2014. But there's nothing like seeing him live, where his charming, fresh-faced personality and smooth sleight-of-hand will beguile and confound you in equal doses.

The award winning Backdoor Comedy Club is the city's longest running stand-up comedy showcase and, after 20 years, still reigns as the hot spot for Dallas comedy.
