Comedic magician Vinny Grosso is competing on America’s Got Talent, Season 12. It’s not his first time on TV – he was a contestant on Penn & Teller: Fool Us, on which Grosso did successfully fool the duo. For his AGT audition, Grosso goes shirtless a la a Chippendale’s dancer costume and asks fellow bald-headed comedian, AGT judge Howie Mandel to join him on stage (which he does).
Before becoming a professional magician, Grosso went to Villanova and graduated with a degree in engineering. That’s where he learned to create his own original illusions like the one he uses in his routine “Tasteless” which fooled the famously difficult to fool magicians Penn & Teller. See video below. America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
