Mike Bliss "Master of Variety"

Why book 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 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!

Outstanding!

We hired Mike for our company Christmas party and were very pleased! His performance was as promised. It is full of energy, comedy, and amazement. We had employees commenting on Monday morning that "whoever is on the committee next year has their work cut out for them." Thanks for a good time!

What a Blast

Our party had a blast with Mike Bliss. Our guys tried to figure out how he made stuff disappear, they were wrong every time. Very funny. Still trying to figure it out. Lots of fun.

This show was amazing!

The thing about our community is that there is not very many things to do to bring the young and the old together, this show opened an opportunity to bring families together and it was just absolutely amazing. Thank you Mike and Sons!

Review by Tim O.

Mike and his sons were fantastic. They received a standing ovation and that does not happen very often with our group. Mike was engaging, funny and amazed the audience. I am still receiving comments about how much everyone enjoyed the show. I would highly recommend them for any group because they entertain at so many different levels. I booked them for two different groups that I was involved in. Bravo! I will be glad to serve as a reference Tim Orellano

Review by Stacey S.

We had Mike come for our Upward Awards Night and he did a phenomenal job! Extremely easy to work with, no prima dona attitude, was willing to do whatever needed to help our night go well, and interacted very well with our people. His skills were exceptional and he appealed to every age group. Most importantly, he shared the gospel in a simple and straightforward way that everyone could understand. I highly recommend Mike for any event, he was a joy to work with.

Review by Colby C.

Our students laughed a lot, and were amazed at Mike's show. The tricks were way beyond the typical things you see in a show. They are still talking about his performance and will be for years to come. All I hear is when is Mike coming back? They loved the show from start to finish.

Mike presented himself in a personal and professional manner. We greatly enjoyed his antics on stage as he interacted with individual audience members and the crowd. His Gospel presentation was clear and set a good foundation for follow up.
