Most recently, he fooled the famous Vegas duo, Penn & Teller, on their hit CW TV show, “Penn and Teller: Fool Us” and became the closing act for their show at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

As an entrepreneur, Kostya founded See Magic Live to give other magicians more opportunities to share their talents with the world. His company’s local See Magic Live team served as the magicians for the NBA’s Orlando Magic beginning in 2010.
