Mat Franco (born May 10, 1988) is an American magician and the winner of the ninth season of America’s Got Talent. Franco rose above tens of thousands of acts to become the first and only magician in history to win AGT, including the $1 million prize.
Best known for his personality-driven, sleight-of-hand style of magic, Mat Franco’s TV specials marked the first time NBC produced a spin-off show around their AGT winner. Franco is currently headlining in Las Vegas at The Linq Hotel and Casino.
In 2003, at age 15, Franco was invited to perform onstage at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, as part of a show hosted by the Society of American Magicians called “Stars of Tomorrow”.
