“I wanted to take a moment to say ‘thank you’ for your spectacular performance at our annual corporate retreat. It was both refreshing and relaxing to just sit back and be entertained by a truly ‘Vegas’ quality show.”
Responses such as the one above are the reason Jason Michaels has established himself as one of today’s premier entertainers and speakers. Known for his ability to engage and interact with his audience with an intense, focused energy, Jason creates unforgettable performances that involve everyone. Audience members do far more than just watch one of Jason’s programs. They participate in the fun, the comedy, and every moment of the onstage action.
The term “magician” simply isn’t sufficient to describe Jason Michaels. Jason creates a unique, interactive experience far beyond the scope of the traditional “magic show.” While he makes excellent use of magic techniques, Jason also draws from his background in theatre to create original, compelling visuals that audiences never forget. As in most great entertainment, Jason creates at times uncontrollable laughter and, at other times, tense, gripping suspense that forces you to the very edge of your seat.
Jason spent his college years focused on the study of theatre and honing his performance skills. Magic remained merely a hobby until the opportunity arose to study and work with several of today’s top illusionists. When Jason abandoned the “safety net” of working for other entertainers, he employed razor-sharp sleight of hand to create lasting impressions on those who saw him live. Featured on several television programs, Jason’s playful style of “interactive impossibilities” amazed audiences with dazzling feats of visual poetry utilizing only a deck of cards, two hands and years of practice.
During this time, Jason developed his signature performance style. By combining comedy and drama with magic and storytelling, Jason is able to bring huge laughs, unforgettable audience interaction and standing ovations from audiences.
To this day, Jason Michaels continues to entertain and enthrall audiences with performances that warp the mind, warm the heart and energize the stage. Whether he is performing his high-energy show, emceeing a corporate meeting, or delivering a dynamic speech, Jason Michaels is at home in any venue, on any stage. Shakespeare proclaimed, “All the world’s a stage.” Jason agrees and is determined to use every stage he’s given to make a lasting impact on those who experience him.

My earliest influence is definitely my grandfather. He was a very special man. And he still influences my life to this day.
After watching a television special as a child I vividly remember wanting to be just like David Copperfield. His magic and illusions are unparalleled as entertainment.
I credit David Blaine for really setting me on fire to learn and perform high impact, excellent sleight of hand magic.
Today I am influenced by artists outside of the realm of magic and illusion. I am absolutely fascinated by the way musicians reach their audiences. U2 is certainly legendary at it.
I am also influenced by great authors such as Patterson, Steinmeyer, Flynn and O'Connor.
