In addition, his other accomplishments include being named Entertainer of the Year, Best Performing Artist of the Year, Best Novelty Performer of the Year AND he was voted America’s Favorite Mystifier on NBC’s hit TV Show PHENOMENON. Despite all of this, Mike humbly insists, it is the loyalty of his fan base that has been most rewarding. His legions of fans call themselves "THE SUPERFREAKS" and they number in the millions.

Mike has brought the art of magic back to the people. He transcends the "trick" and connects personally with his audience on a level they can relate to.
