Michael Skinner

MICHAEL SKINNER (1941-1998) was a close-up magician that grew up in Rochester, New York and studied under Eddie Fechter from Buffalo. He later moved to Hollywood and spent eight years at the Magic Castle studying with the Professor, Dai Vernon. For over 20 years, he was the magician in residence at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas, Nevada. His vast repertoire once allowed him to perform twenty-eight shows, in one week, at the Magic Castle without repeating a single effect.
