She’s proof that ‘anything is possible’ through dedication, tenacity and good humour. Rosanna was one of 55 specialised performers, hand picked Australia wide by the Humour Foundation to be a professional ‘Clown Doctor’ for 15yrs from 1998. Here she worked alongside medical staff as an aid to support children in very difficult times by entertaining, distracting & creating humour where no one through possible. She was most effective in cheering up distressed children, providing very funny, yet appropriate & mindful comedy relief for the whole family. Rosanna is a highly skilled entertainer.
She’s joined forces with “World Champion of Comedy Magic” holder Sam Angelico in the production of “Illusionaire Magic Show” from 2015-2020.
With much in common, both performers are of Sicilian heritage. Both shared similar philosophies in magic which is ‘to create joy & wonder for an audience’, through comedy, story-telling and audience participation.
She was inspired to love magic by TV magic specials by Doug Henning & David Copperfield, never missing their shows as a child. She developed an insatiable appetite to learn how magic worked. This led her to entertain her family and friends.
She encountered ‘master of comedy and magic’ – Mike Van Acker (Bris); “Mike would perform magic for me regularly. I would loved to try and figure out how he did his magic. He was gobsmacked when I told him how he must of done it. He said I had a very lateral thinking mind. ”
“I asked Mike to teach me magic but he said no to me. He said I had to prove I could teach myself and show dedication to the craft. I guess he wanted to see if I had ‘the drive’ to perform and not just want to know how things were done. Another magician friend of Mike, owner of “Magic Works” – Dave Lord from Brisbane, taught me my very first professional magic effects and agreed to mentor me”.
“From my very first paid performance, I started to receive bookings via ‘word of mouth’. The phone just started to ring with bookings. I’m forever learning new magic effects and am still loving it. I feel honoured & privileged to be in a job that I love, with all my heart.”
Her mentors included award winning magicians: Sam Angelico (Melb), Tim Ellis (Melb), “Dan the Magic Man” Brand(GC), Doc Eason(USA) and Greg Willson (USA). They taught her close up magic, stage craft & assisted her in developing her own dazzling corporate stage shows and productions.
