Andrew Basso is an Italian illusionist who is best known for touring with the show “The Illusionists”. Also known as The Escapologist, Basso is known for his escape routines which include escaping from a water torture cell and escaping from a torture chair. He has been the first man in history to present Houdini’s signature water escape in full view. He has performed all over the world from Dubai, New York, St. Tropez, Capri, Monte Carlo, Marbella to New York. He has been featured on outlets such as USA Today, CBS, NBC, ABC, and more. Basso was born in Borgo Valsugana, Italy, and was fascinated by magic as a child. By the time he was only 12 years old he went from learning simple trick to learning the real secrets of magic. After several years of practicing, Basso successfully finished his first underwater escape at only 17 years old. A year later, he made his first performance in Las Vegas at the World Magic Seminar. He was then selected by Jeff McBride, Eugene Burger and Lance Burton to study at the prestigious Magic Mystery School. Since then, Basso has been named Champion of Magic by Masters of Magic, and has been awarded World Escape Champion in Los Angeles..
