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.
— Jessica Bliss, Columnist - The Tennessean
Oh my heavens...Incredible! You’re fabulous!
— Holly Thompson, NBC
All I can say about Jason Michaels TEDx talk is “WOW”. He was by far one of the most interesting TEDx speakers I have ever gotten the chance to listen to. He draws you in with the most interesting stories and magic tricks.... and then blows your mind when he talks about his personal story. Definitely looking forward to having the chance to hear him speak again.
— David Levine - Professor, PhD, UT Chattanooga, TEDx UTChattanooga
I wanted to take a moment to say ‘thank you’ for your spectacular performance at our annual corporate retreat. It was both refreshing and relaxing to just sit back and be entertained by a truly ‘Vegas’ quality show.
— Jim Owens – Prudential
Jason and his team are top notch! He was fantastic to work with from beginning to end. The show was a huge success and our group is still talking about it!
— Kelli Lanfersieck – BAM Advisor Services
I am not sure I can adequately express how much your ‘magic touch’ enhanced our employee appreciation celebration.
— Cindy Tanley – Lithographics, Inc.
...you put on a “performance” that included the whole crowd and a variety of illusions, magic and drama. I love the fact that you used the audience so much. When you concluded the show I wanted to see more!
— Sara Arthur, Special Events Coordinator
The incorporation of audience participation and humor while performing illusions made for a lively and interactive event for the students, faculty, and staff of the LSU community.
— David Dessauer, Louisiana State University
In addition to the major stage illusions and comedy that “Wowed” our crowd, one of my favorite parts was how you incorporated our message into the interactive magic that you presented. By keeping the focus on our mission to end Type 1 diabetes you provided a fun atmosphere while celebrating the real reason that everyone was in attendance. You certainly were the best entertainment we’ve ever had.
— Mary Lyn Schuh, Executive Director-JDRF Middle Tennessee
Your stage show was incredible! I truly appreciate how you worked with us so much to meld part of your show to include personalizations to our business...we appreciate all you did to make our banquet an unforgettable one.
— Tammie Brace-Turnipseed - NEC, Inc
5 stars out of 5. Jason’s message is told in the most perfect entertaining, engaging manner. It is very motivating to all in attendance. We highly recommend Jason Michaels as a performer or motivational speaker for any event.
— Ronald Whitmore
You’re great! The magic is YOU!!!
— Tony Orlando
Jason took charge in creating a talk that was compelling and engaging for the audience. Between compelling slides, several on-stage magic tricks, and a great story, Jason hit it out of the park.
— Hana Elliott, organizer TEDx Nashville
Wow! What a show!
