Genre:Magic and Comedy / Prop Comic / Stand-Up
BioMichael Kent became interested in magic at the age of three, when he learned he could make himself disappear by covering his eyes. This was just the first in a lifetime of amazing accomplishments. In a style reminiscent of a late-night talk show, he invites the audience to laugh with him at the absurdity of a modern-day magician. He combines his sarcastic and irreverent sense of humor with mind-blowing magic in a way that seems to let the audience “in on the joke.” As Michael tours college campuses all over the country, his audiences are experiencing what its like when a stand up comic performs (and occasionally pokes fun at) the art of magic.
