Why hire Mike Bliss "Master of Variety"?
"You're great! You're going to go far and make big money!"
- Piers Morgan, NBC's America's Got Talent!
"Wow, wow, wow…..what an amazing show!!! Mike, I just wanted to let you know what a great day we had during our Plant Celebrations. I can truly say our employees at Eckrich have not stopped talking about your performance. The excitement, the entertainment and the mystery was above and beyond what we had expected!!!! Your ability to be flexible shows how much of a professional you really are.
Again, it was a pleasure to meet you and thank you for a very enjoyable show."
- Yvonne Cameron, Armour-Eckrich Meats Company
"Everyone really loved your show. Our bank President was a little skeptical about us having a magician for entertainment, but LOVED it afterwards, especially the way you tied UMB values and the sales rally theme into the show. The trick with the numbers was a real hit with everyone too….people still talk about it. Thanks!"
- Natalie Lane, UMB Bank
"Your performance at our Christmas Party this year is the best we had in my 28 years at Co-Mo. It was clean entertainment and was enjoyed by everyone.”
- Don Ernst, Assistant Manager, Co-Mo Electric Cooperative, Inc.
Mike Bliss is a professional Comedian/Magician/Juggler/Pick-Pocket who got his start at the age of 3 (yes, 3) when he saw a kid cut a string in half and "restore" it. He thought, "That's cool?! You're not supposed to be able to do that!" He began to study magic books from the library (with his parents' help on the "big words") and practicing on his brothers. When he turned 5, he saved his parents some money by perfoming his first magic show for his own 5th B-Day Party!
Today, Mike has been entertaining for over 25 years all across the country from Miami, FL, to Fairbanks, AK, to the World Famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, to Cancun, to Honolulu, to Tahiti, to Headlining his own show in Branson, MO! He was also voted "Branson's Specialty Act of the Year"! Mike's TV credits include Fox's 30 Seconds to Fame! and NBC's America's Got Talent!
Why Hire Mike Bliss?
Besides having over 33 years of experience (Mike's 37) studying and entertaining with magic and other skills of dexterity, Mike actually has a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Music Theatre Performance. He not only headlined many of the Main Stage Production shows as an Actor, he also learned Directing, Speech, and Choreography (Mike's a skilled dancer of 20 years). What difference does this make? When you witness someone who actually understands how to “move on stage”, it's effortless and enjoyable to watch. Mike knows how to carry himself and how to “handle” audience members and make them the stars of the show. You can be confident that your guests will enjoy an unforgettable show when Mike is entertaining for your next event!
Besides being an Award Winning Solo Performer for over 25 years, on special occasions, Mike's two oldest boys (Zachary 13 & Stephen 12) join him in the juggling and a one-of-a-kind Mind Reading Act!
Mike's unforgettable Comedy/Magic Show is loaded with incredible sleight of hand, unbelievable predictions, levitating tables, and unforgettable pick-pocketing! However, all that technical skill is not the only reason why Mike performs over 300 shows a year. His personality, charm, and non stop wit allows him to instantly connect with his audience and Entertain! With Mike, it's not about the "tricks". The ONLY thing that matters is whether or not the audience is having an unforgettable experience that they would want to repeat... and they ALWAYS DO!
