His live shows have been staged to full houses across South East Asia and New Zealand further proving his productions are amongst the most powerful, riveting and sought after in the entertainment industry today.

Cosentino has appeared on every major television show and print publication across the country. He was the first Australian magician to have his own TV shows, prime-time specials that were ratings bonanzas, averaging 1.3 million viewers per episode (source: Oztam). They have now been broadcast in over 40 countries across the globe and been seen by over 350 million people. Fairfax Media said Consantina, "understands the visual medium of television and that is rare thing - an overnight natural". The Today Show (Nine Network) said Cosentino had single handedly "revolutionised the art of magic in Australia, making it one of the hottest genres in primetime", and Sunday Night program (Network Seven), said he was regarded as "this country's most successful magician, illusionist and escapologist". The Sunday Telegraph says "Cosentino is the most successful entertainer to emerge from reality television in Australia".

It's a dynamic mix of the unexpected, dazzling magic and illusions blended with energetic dance, dangerous nail-biting escapes, audience participation, humour and many surprising twists....
