You were wonderful!! My son, Max, sang your praises for days. You were so kind and did a great job at including all of the other children! I loved seeing my son's face light up when you finished a trick, it made mine and my husband's day. We'd definitely book you again.
My son absolutely adored jack and his comedy magic. His rates are low and that was a huge bonus we got a lot more than what we payed for. Over all we were really happy with our choice.

Jack first got interested in magic at the age of 8 years old after seeing a magician performing on television. He read every single book at the library on magic he could find. At the age of 10 he performed his first show at hope lodge. Afterwards he knew this is what he loved doing. At the age of 13 Jack saw there was going to be a magician competition in columbus called ”Magi Fest”. Jack entered and was delighted to be accepted in. Jack was the youngest out of all the competitors. He performed full of fear and anxiety, yet despite that he still did. When they announced the awards 3rd went to “Not Jack”, 2nd when to “Not Jack” and first, at this point Jack was beyond excited. The announcer spoke and” first place goes to… not Jack”. Jack felt complete defeat and disappointment. Then the announcer said “we are also giving out a full scholarship to the most prestigious performance art camps in north America The Prize goes to .. Jack Grady”. Jack was filled with excitement and the camp has been one of his greatest learning experiences to this day.
One year later Jack went on to high school, his first day he saw a poster that read “Mentor High School Improv club”. Jack decided to attend just to watch. He decided to show up just to watch. One of the leaders of the club went up to him and started to pressure him to go up on stage just once. After much convincing Jack went up on stage. Lets parse it with “It wasn’t his best performance”. He stilled loved his time up there he kept trying to go up every week and eventually improvement began. The old leader of improv was on to graduate and they decided to put Jack in charge. For his next 3 years Jack was the Mentor High School improv president. In that time he was the first to do full improv comedy shows. On top of that the experience with improv comedy heavily influenced his act.
In 2015 Jack took his improv comedy magic act to the “International Battle of Magician” the competition was so strong due to the international aspect Jack would've been overjoyed for 3rd place. He performed a 15 minute stage act that would now become his hour long stage show today. The tensions were very high at the award ceremony, They announcer called “Third place : Not Jack Grady”, at this point Jack Thought “I’m probably not getting anything ”. “Second Place: not Jack Grady”, Jack was beyond certain he didn’t get any prize. “Finally first place and the chance to perform in the gala show at the palace theater: Jack Grady”. Jack was stunned and delighted. Later that evening because he had won this grand prize he had to perform for a sold out theater of 5,000.
After that Jack was even more inspired to pursue entertainment further. He performed at all the Mentor High events, countless birthdays and comedy clubs. He has created a very well polished one of a kind comedy magic show.
