Meik Bartoschek aka Rivelino started his Magic Career in 1972. His Dad showed him a simple rope trick for Christmas and Meik was hooked.
“I was fortunate enough to meet my long-time friend and mentor Nils Nielsen shortly after my passion for magic emerged and for the next 10 years he taught me everything he knew.”
Thanks to his Dad, his mentor and the fact that he worked part-time at a Magic Store, Meik had an opportunity to perform hundreds of magic shows at Nursing Homes, Childrens Parties, Hospitals, Street Fairs and other venues before he was even 16 years old. These invaluable experiences gave him a unique chance to hone his skills, develop his unique comedy style and eventually develop his famous comedy act that made him German Vice Champion in Comedy Magic and a household name at Magic Conventions, Workshops and Lectures.
