Jason Michaels performs impossible feats with a deck of cards.
— The Tennessean
The man’s got a winning personality and keeps up a constant patois… Michaels uses his skills for good, not evil…It’s entertaining, not to mention educational…It makes for a fun — if philosophically disturbing — show.
— Marty Fugate, Your Observer
…how and where Michaels finds cards only they [audience members] are supposed to know or have somewhere on their person is truly extraordinary.
— Marie Kilker,
A treat of tricks…entertaining and frequently surprising…his tricks are impressive and you feel constantly amazed…a fun evening.
— Jay Handelman, Sarasota Herald-Tribune
