WHAT DISTINGUISHES THE GOOD MAGICIAN FROM THE GREAT IS THE RIGOR OF EXECUTION AND QUALITY OF ARTISTRY. MR. DEPONTO’S CRAFTSMANSHIP CONSISTENTLY IMPRESSES.

VINNY DEPONTO’S CHARLATAN IS ENGAGING, SUSPENSEFUL, BAFFLING (IN THE BEST SENSE), AND TOTALLY CHARMING. AFTER THE SHOW, EVERYONE IN THE AUDIENCE ASKED EACH OTHER, “HOW DID HE KNOW THAT?” NOBODY HAD ANY GOOD IDEAS. I LEFT FEELING VERY IMPRESSED AND SLIGHTLY FRUSTRATED BY MY OWN TRANSPARENCY.

VINNY WAS AMAZING! WOWING GUESTS LEFT AND RIGHT, AND DOING IT ALL WITH CHARM, GRACE, AND AN INCREDIBLE SENSE OF HUMOR.
— Will Guidara - NoMad Hotel

VINNY IS CHARMING, INTELLIGENT, AND A GREAT PERFORMER. HE IS REALLY EXCELLENT AT CROWD WORK. MY GUESTS LOVED HIM. HE IS A REAL DEAL ENTERTAINER AND TRUE GEM.
— RACHEL MCKAY STEELE

VINNY IS AN OUTSTANDING MENTALIST AND MIND READER. HIS PASSION FOR WHAT HE DOES SHOULD BE AN EXAMPLE FOR HOW EVERYONE SHOULD GO ABOUT LIVING OUT HIS OR HER DREAMS.

VINNY SIMPLY LEFT ME SPEECHLESS—NOT AN EASY THING TO DO TO A WRITER!
— ROBERT SCHORK, EXECUTIVE EDITOR 914 INC. MAGAZINE

IN 2011 VINNY WAS FEATURED ON THE COVER OF 914 INC. MAGAZINE AND NAMED
ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS UNDER 30.


VINNY HAS THE UNIQUE ABILITY TO LIGHT UP A ROOM WITH HIS PRESENCE. I WOULD WORK WITH HIM ANY DAY OF THE WEEK, AND VALUE AND TRUST HIS INSTINCTS AND INSIGHTS. HE MAY BE ALL ABOUT ILLUSION, BUT VINNY IS THE REAL DEAL!
— JENIFER ROSS

VINNY IS A POLISHED AND TALENTED PERFORMER. I HAVE ENGAGED HIM FOR HIGH-LEVEL CORPORATE & SOCIAL EVENTS. HE HAS PROVIDED SPEEDY AND PRECISE COMMUNICATION LEADING UP TO THE EVENT, AS WELL AS APPARENTLY EFFORTLESS AND PERFECTLY FLEXIBLE EXECUTION DURING. I WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE.
