" ...There's real elegance and even wit in the precision of his gestures, the agility of each finger."
- The New York Times

About the Artist
Bishop is an international award-winning illusionist who was the youngest person to win the Magician’s Alliance of Eastern States Stage Award and one of the youngest people to compete in the Society of American Magicians World-Class competition. Bishop’s interest in magic began early on, truly taking shape in his mid-teens. In college, Jason studied theatre and then went on the road, performing at resorts, amusement parks, or anywhere he could find an audience, including the street. As audiences grew, he altered his magic to became larger and more impressive.
The Jason Bishop Show now tours the most dynamic illusion and magic show in the US. The show currently features exclusive large illusions, award winning sleight of hand and “close-up” magic that is captured live and projected onto LCD screens for the audience to have a clear view of every detail. Bishop is currently the only illusionist in the U.S. to tour with the rare Double Levitation, Plasma illusion and Op-Art. His performance abilities have led him to notable venues across the United States.
