JAMESTOWN – An internationally touring illusionist is returning to Jamestown after wowing audience members 16 months ago.
Jason Bishop – billed as “America’s Hottest Illusionist” – will perform at Reg Lenna Center for The Arts Saturday, September 24 at 8 p.m.
From his breathtaking Double Levitation (pictured) to his cutting edge Op-Art and Plasma illusions, Jason Bishop features stunning & original state of the art magic. Each show features award winning sleight of hand, exclusive grand illusions and close-up magic projected onto a huge movie screen. No other touring illusionist showcases such a diverse array of talents. Additionally, the show is delivered with a totally modern energy and an outstanding rock & pop soundtrack.
The show is surprisingly funny and truly magical. Bishop cuts through the usual hype and focuses on entertaining audiences with one remarkable illusion after another. Each routine is presented in his unique style. Some pieces feature more laughs than are typically expected from an illusionist, while other effects literally demonstrate sleight of hand skill performed at a world-class level. Jason engages the audience on and offstage. Imaginative choreography, intelligent lighting, perfectly timed music and countless costume changes by his assistant Kim are added elements that help make each performance unforgettable.
The Jason Bishop Show, like last season’s Cirque Ziva, will move to New York City in November for an Off-Broadway run at the New Victory Theatre. It is sponsored locally by Comfort Inn of Jamestown and DFT Communications.
