Michael Carbonaro, star and executive producer of the hit series “The Carbonaro Effect” on truTV, is bringing his live show to Owensboro. “Carbonaro: Lies on Stage” will combine magic, shenanigans, and more for a family-friendly show at the RiverPark Center this fall.

The show is scheduled for 7 p.m. on September 29, with tickets going on sale at 10 a.m. on May 23 at and the RiverPark Center Box Office.

A performing magician since his youth, Carbonaro went on to study experimental theater at New York University with aspirations of entertaining audiences through a variety of theatrical mediums, including hidden-camera magic, which he later showcased frequently on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

Following Carbonaro’s frequent late-night appearances, he launched his hit comedic series, “The Carbonaro Effect,” which has run for more than 100 episodes on truTV and currently airs on Max and in syndication worldwide. 

In this series, Carbonaro performs inventive tricks on unsuspecting members of the public who are unaware that he is a magician.

“Jaws drop when he causes a car to disappear from under a security guard’s nose or makes alien crabs transform into kittens in a science lab. Whether posing as a coffee shop barista, museum curator, or seemingly unremarkable store clerk in the real world, Carbonaro’s illusions – along with his absurd, matter-of-fact explanations – leave real people bewildered and families at home laughing out loud,” Carbonaro’s bio reads.

In 2016, Carbonaro embarked on his first theater tour with the widely acclaimed show “Michael Carbonaro Live!” He launched his current live show “Carbonaro: Lies on Stage” in 2021.
