Each show features exclusive large illusions and award-winning sleight-of-hand and "close-up" magic that is captured live and projected onto plasma screens, giving the audience a clear view of every detail. No other touring illusionist showcases such a diverse array of talents, and the show is delivered with a totally modern energy and an outstanding rock & pop soundtrack.
Intelligent lighting, countless costume changes by his assistant Kim, Bishop’s quick wit and engaging audience participation make each performance unforgettable.

As America’s Hottest Illusionist, Jason Bishop might read your mind one second or make goldfish appear the next. Jason was handpicked by LiveNation to perform with Ke$ha, Matt & Kim, Paramore, Weezer, Drake, and many other celbs at multiple Bamboozle Festivals. His performance abilities have led him from L.A to NYC and Mexico to Sweden, as well as every state and many countries in-between.
Jason has entertained celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Bam Margera, who after seeing him perform said, “Jason Bishop is the best magician I’ve ever seen.” Bishop’s combination of modern music, fast paced magic, sleight of hand and audience participation have landed him in several notable venues, including Celebrity & Disney Cruise lines, Hollywood’s Magic Castle and the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. He was also named APCA’s Best Performing Artist of the Year.
As Jason’s lead assistant, Kim Hess is an indispensable part of the show. From performing illusions with Jason to assisting audience members, to knowing the show cues inside and out Kim is a vital part of the show’s success. Born in Reading, Pennsylvania, Kim began studying the performing arts at a very young age. When she was 4, she had an experience that absolutely changed her life. At the suggestion of a family member, Kim’s mother took her to a local baton twirling production unit. Kim stayed with that group for more than nineteen years. In that time, she won well over one hundred awards, among them were first place trophies from the National/World Baton Conference held at Notre Dame University. During those years, Kim also studied dance and gymnastics and was a captain of her high school cheerleading squad. With her fun and warm personality, her striking looks and considerable talent, Kim is an irreplaceable member of the team.
