cigars, cognac, and Cons

Jason Michaels ‘CardShark’ was the perfect entertainment for our Casino and Cigars charity event. Every encounter left people laughing and in wonder. His stories and history about card cheating, con artistry, and sleight of hand were the icing on the cake for our casino-inspired event.

Jason Michaels’ commanding stage presence captures an audience in magical ways. He not only astounds with his slight-of-hand card tricks, but he also takes spectators on a compelling journey as a storyteller. Both jaw-dropping and inspiring – a Jason Michaels’ performance is definitely worth the experience.
