Cosmo went on to study classic stage magic at the prestigious Chavez College of Magic, but his love for performing "close up magic" soon overshadowed his desire to be a stage magician and he become one of the busiest private event magicians in Los Angeles.
"I wasn't trying to become famous, I was just trying to EAT! I took every type of magic job I could, I worked table side at restaurants, birthday parties, nursing homes, I taught magic at children's camps and held workshops for professional magicians. I also worked in magic shops during the day.
At 21, he became a member of the world famous Hollywood Magic Castle and over the next few decades, he would meet, become close friends with and be mentored by many of the very legends he admired as a child.
For over 30 years Cosmo has since performed for heads of state, celebrities and leaders in business and industry. After a few years in Las Vegas, Cosmo returned to Colorado seeking a more family oriented environment and now resides in Colorado Springs, CO.
Cosmo has become internationally known among his peers for inventing unique magic effects used by some of the top performers around the world. His influence and creations can be seen the world over on stages, in private venues and on international television.
In 2015 Cosmo built his 12 seat theater "The Close Up Room" (in a private location) and continues to offer very intimate and private performances for exclusive guests.
"For many years, I've had the desire to one day own my own theater. "The Close Up Room" started as an experiment that I'd hoped would allow me to do my "dream" show of pure "close up, sleight of hand". To my surprise and joy, we immediately were getting requests to do shows almost once a week! If The Close Up Room was a dream come true, "Cosmo's Magic Theater" is like a dream within a dream!" -Cosmo Solano
