Franz Harary

Cover of Genii (2011)


Franz Harary (b.1962) is an American magician and inventor who has appeared on television shows such as the first episode of NBC's The World's Greatest Magic, where Harary vanished the Space Shuttle.


While studying music at Eastern Michigan University and aspiring to be a singer and dancer on Broadway, Harary was designing illusions as a hobby. He began performing publicly after convincing the university's marching band leader to let him appear as part of the halftime show. His commercial breakthrough happened at the age of 21, during his senior year in college, when he initiated a stage illusion for Michael Jackson's 1984 Victory tour. Harary made Jackson levitate and disappear on one side of the stage to reappear with his brothers on the other side.
