For over a decade Angela Funovits has demonstrated the ability to accurately read thoughts, influence others, and even move or shatter objects from across the room.
Launched into the international spotlight by her starring role on NBC’s primetime series "Phenomenon," as well as TV specials in Germany and Japan, Funovits' demonstrations are attracting more attention today than ever before.
"Magic Magazine" calls Funovits “an original mind-bending mentalist… a performer on the mentalist scene whose rise to prominence has been nothing short of phenomenal,” while "Street Magic" Magazine calls her “a (charming, gorgeous, talented) little hottie… who’s smarter than our entire staff combined.”
Following her first appearance in Europe, Uri Geller predicted on national television that she would be “the first female mystifier to conquer the world.” With such rave reviews from even the toughest of critics, one thing is for certain - Funovits delivers shock, awe and an ultimately unforgettable experience no matter where her her talents take her.
Angela Funovits was born on July 29, 1987 and raised in Avon Lake, Ohio. She became interested in magic at the age of 10 after watching "Breaking the Magician's Code: Magic's Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed," a TV program that revealed the secrets of magicians.
Funovits began modeling at age 11 and won the "Miss Teen Cleveland" pageant at age 16. She graduated from Avon Lake High School in 2005 and entered the combined B.S./M.D. program at NEOUCOM, later forming a program where magicians teach magic tricks to children at a cancer support center in Cleveland.
In October and November 2007, Funovits was the only female of ten mentalist contestants on the prime time NBC series "Phenomenon," which was judged by Criss Angel and Uri Gellar.
She finished as first runner-up on the series, after performing dangerous demonstrations of mentalism involving chain saws, knives, and fire.
Funovits represented the USA in the live German TV special “Die besten Mentalisten der Welt” on ProSieben. The special was an addition to the German series “The Next Uri Geller - Unglaubliche Phänomene live.” Funovits has also starred in W-1, a Japanese TV special on the Fuji Television Network alongside Japanese magician Mr. Maric.
