Newporter Mat Franco blew Gronk’s mind with this magic trick!

Our favorite Newport magician, Mat Franco, who last year rose above tens of thousands of acts to become the season 9 winner of NBC’s hit reality-competition series “America’s Got Talent,” brings his two-hour special “Mat Franco’s Got Magic” to NBC. The special will feature appearances by Neil Patrick Harris, Heidi Klum, Rob Gronkowski, Jason Mraz, Penn & Teller and more.

“Mat Franco’s Got Magic” will capture Franco traveling from his home in Rhode Island to Las Vegas, stopping off at incredible locations, wowing celebrities, performing street magic and visiting the family, friends and everyday Americans who helped make his dream come true. When he reaches his final destination, Franco will learn what it takes to put on a high-profile show and fulfill his dreams of becoming a headlining act in Las Vegas at The LINQ Hotel & Casino.

Magician Mat Franco brings his special “Mat Franco’s Got Magic” to NBC on Thursday, September 17 at 9/8c.
