Jason Michaels

  • Creator of an Unforgettable Theatrical Experience Far Beyond the Scope of the Traditional “Magic Show”
  • Known as "The Card Shark"
  • Astounding Expertise in the Arts of Deception and Illusion

Jason Michaels, better known as “The CardShark,” is a dynamic and engaging speaker and entertainer with astounding expertise in the arts of deception. He has been a student of sleight of hand, illusion, and theater for almost 25 years. A storyteller by heart, Jason loves to blend impossible mysteries with unforgettable tales of adventure, danger and romance.

Diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome at age six, Jason has battled the neurological disorder and its uncontrollable “tics and twitches” his entire life. However, at age 16, he experienced the impossible when he first stepped onto the stage in a high school play. While Jason performed the tics and twitches associated with his Tourette’s vanished. He discovered a passion for live theater and, after wandering into a magic shop later that year, Jason’s path in life was set. In 2005, Jason became an international award-winning entertainer after competing in several international magic competitions.

As a professional speaker and entertainer, Jason is celebrated for his ability to engage and inspire his audiences. Because of his own creative and inquisitive nature, Jason thoroughly enjoys performing for both artistic, cultured audiences as well as highly intelligent, analytical crowds.

Jason has shared his style of interactive humor, sleight of hand, and illusion with audiences on cruise ships and at corporate events, universities, performing arts centers, and private social affairs all over the world, including the Bahamas, Shanghai, Beijing, London, Las Vegas, Chicago, Atlantic City, Orlando, and his home, Nashville.

At 16, Jason Michaels experienced the impossible in his own life and since then has been performing the impossible around the world to the astonishment and delight of his audiences.

THE MAGIC BUSINESS

Jason’s presentation, The Magic Business, is both an informative and entertaining program that explains how we do business, who we do business with, and why we do business with certain people or companies.  These topics are first explored in the context of a show.  Attendees are able to relax and be entertained by a brief show, which is then broken down and analyzed as to why it was interesting, how it was structured, and who it was designed to reach.  By experiencing the fun first, then learning what made it effective in reaching the intended audience, attendees are able to directly relate to each and every example.  The examples are then further explored in the context of how business works best in order for us to be effective leaders, marketers, and business people.  Once you experience Jason’s program, The Magic Business, you will understand how the business of doing shows can help guide you to massive success in your business.
