Jason Abbott is a magician that started doing magic when he was five years old. He has been performing magic professionally for the past six years and last year did over 250 shows. He has appeared and disappeared in front of tens of thousands of people and has won several magic awards. Jason lives in Northville, Michigan and performs all over southeastern Michigan. He currently does three different types of magic shows.
His stand-up kid show is perfect for birthday parties and other small events. In it, he makes the birthday child the star of the show and produces a live bunny rabbit at the end of the show.
His family magic show is even bigger and better and includes a full sound system and straitjacket escape called "Escape the Top Forty". This show is designed for bigger audiences like those at company picnics, school assemblies, and outdoor events.
Jason also does a lot of close-up magic. He has performed at Boulders Restaurant in Plymouth Monday nights for the past four years. Jason does very impressive card magic and other close-up illusions to mystify adults and kids alike. He also makes an impressive list of balloon animals quicker than thought possible.
All of Jason's shows are filled with lots of laughter and audience participation and are sure to provide smiling audiences, which means happy clients and repeat bookings.

Your Next Event!
My name is Aaron Balcom and I am a professional award-winning entertainer who has created programs so dynamic & fun that clients and audiences are left talking about them for months to come.
Everywhere my show goes, publicity surrounds me. I've gotten front page newspaper coverage, appeared in magazines around the world, made various television appearances, including one on an Emmy award-winning program, plus much more.
My shows combine the latest in rock & pop music, with dancing, special effects / pyrotechnics and an incredible array of grand stage illusions. The shows are of the same size and caliber as what David Copperfield presents, but with a more "rock concert" style presentation.
But unlike many of the shows like this, mine is a big show without all the big hassles. It is completely turn-key, which means that performances can take place almost anywhere, from surrounded in an arena, to a gymnasium floor while maintaining a total theatrical experience to the audience! Everything from the semi-truck, stage / intelligent lighting, an arena capable audio system, pyrotechnics, special effects, backdrops (some free-standing), crew / dancers and much more is provided by me at no extra charge to you, the client.
The show begins in true rock & roll fashion with me making a flash appearance on a motorcycle while surrounded by an audience committee!
There's also comedy, interaction with the audience and sleight of hand to bring things to a more personal level with the audience. One of the sleight of hand routines with only a deck of playing cards has won numerous awards and international praise from some of the most respected people in my business.
In another segment, I read the minds of everyone in the entire audience. Since everyone wants to be up on stage as a part of the show, this effect allows them to from their own seat.
Two time traveling routines take audiences back to the 1950's, and another to the days of Vaudeville for more sleight of hand and incredible mind blowing magic.
Numerous illusions in the show were invented by me and fully developed by the top engineers in the business. One example of this is my exclusive Skyscraper illusion, which was over three years in development. I employed an electrical engineer / fabricator who has worked on projects for such performers as Franz Harary and David Copperfield to help complete the project. Since then, this illusion has been the headlining illusion in my show, and is now presented as a tribute to the World Trade Center.
There's also the hottest new age classic illusions such as Origami, where I fold a dancer into a box 12 inches square and plunge three swords through it, or Soul Passage, where a dancer visually crawls through my chest!
