Parties for your employees and/or clients usually consist of cocktails, dinner then a band and dancing. The problem is everyone does the same old event, EVERY YEAR. Give your guests something they will get excited about, something different, something they will remember – an edge of your seat, hilariously entertaining magic-illusion show.

He has been called “one of Canada’s Elite Magicians” (CTV) and he is coming your way with a show of amazing magic, hilarious comedy and unforgettable illusion – specifically for adults. This show is based around interaction and participation; members of the audience are called up on stage truly experience the incredible magic first hand. Michael’s quick wit and sharp humor truly engages the audience and leaves a lasting impression on everyone watching.

The magic itself is nothing short of incredible as well, not only will the audience laugh, they will be truly amazed by the incredible feats that take place before their eyes such as a stunning prediction involving thoughts from random spectators, producing a bowling ball from thin air, making two people instantly change places with no bulky props and much more!

Michael's performance is so popular that it's featured weekly at Ottawa's renowned 'The Prescott'; the show is called 'Turning Tricks' and is presented every Friday night to a sold out crowd.

Here is The 'Highlight Reel' from the show:



If you are looking for something Grand Scale, this is for you. Dazzling illusions are mixed with exciting routines to create a show that is perfect for corporate event planning, banquets, sales meetings, new product launches, galas and parties. You’ll witness amazing illusions where people appear – disappear, float through the air, are cut in half, penetrate through one another, have their head cut up, twisted and removed and more great routines.

Furthermore, Michael makes some of the audience members the stars of the show; inviting several volunteers up to the stage to truly experience the magic. He also makes an astounding prediction using multiple members of the audience, their thoughts and dreams, which lead to the most impossible and breathtaking revelation! Of coarse this leads to many laugh-out-loud moments and incredible memories. The finale is a very novel and touching conclusion to the show, nothing corny, tacky or sappy, just magic at its purest form. Michael combines grand scale illusions, incredible magic and hilarious moments to create a show that will be remembered.
