Cardone wins the "Carney Cup" !

Some of you might know that Cardone has been working with a new variety group called "New York Variety All-Stars".  They started performing together at the beginning of the summer and very quickly things locked in and the show started to fly. In November they were asked to perform at the only sideshow convention in the world called the "Sideshow Gathering". Not being sure they could make the gig because of the gas shortage in NYC, they decided to try and make it on gas fumes.  They pulled into Wilkes-barre PA performed and on sunday morning it was announced that they won "Best show of the year" !!!

Cardone's got a shout out in the New York Times!

Cardone in the New York Daily News !


For Adam Cardone, magic works as a great escape

Escape artist and illusionist Adam Cardone has always been a showman.
“I’ve been an extrovert in my home life,” he says, “so why be any different in my professional life?”
Make that lives for this Queens multitasker.
Tomorrow, he’s on the bill in “The Olde Time Coney Island Strongman Spectacular,” a free event on W. 12th St. and the Bowery in Brooklyn. His act starts at 1:45 p.m. Inspired by Harry Houdini, he’ll attempt to free himself from an old-fashioned milk can filled to the brim with water.
And through July 31, he’s a featured performer in “House of Ghostly Haunts,” a Tuesday night spook show at the Canal Park Playhouse (508 Canal St.). Tickets: $20; (866) 811-4111.
The offbeat shows are par for the course for Cardone, who studied acting at Carnegie Mellon University but found straight theatrical roles trying.
“For me, an artist takes reality and turns it into fantasy,” he says. “A magician takes fantasy and turns it into reality.
“If you type ‘milk can escape’ into Google,” he continues, “it immediately comes up with the secret to the trick. I start my show by telling the audience Houdini’s way.”
He goes on to explain that his act is no illusion and that the dangers of the escape are nothing if not genuine. The straitjacket is real, the locks are real, and the possibility of it all going very wrong is the most real of all.
No wonder his show comes with a tagline: “A claustrophobic hell. A watery grave awaits.”
Don’t count on it.
