"The Carbonaro Effect," formerly known as "Undercover Magic," is a hidden camera series on truTV, starring comic magician Michael Carbonaro.

What happens when you combine a mind-blowing magician with an insatiable practical joker? Michael Carbonaro is a magician by trade, but a prankster at heart. In this series, Michael performs baffling tricks on unsuspecting people in everyday situations, all caught on hidden camera.

Posing as an ordinary bartender or a seemingly unremarkable salesman, Michael astonishes marks by turning a tuft of hair into a puppy or pouring 12 pints of beer from an ordinary bottle. Whether the marks are alone or with their friends, everyone is left stunned and delighted, even though they have no idea what just hit them.

"The Carbonaro Effect" is produced by Fields Entertainment and 11 Television, with Simon Fields and Kevin Healey serving as executive producers.
