Ohio Northern University’s Freed Center for the Performing Arts will present “The Jason Bishop Show” on Saturday, Jan. 23, at 4 p.m.
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.
From his breathtaking double levitation to his cutting edge op-art and plasma illusions, Bishop features stunning and original state-of-the-art magic. One thing that distinguishes Bishop is his virtuosity. Each show features award-winning sleight of hand, exclusive grand illusions and close-up magic projected onto a large movie screen. No other illusionist showcases such a diverse array of talents.
Additionally, the show is delivered with a modern energy and an outstanding rock and pop soundtrack. 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 expected from an illusionist, while others demonstrate sleight-of-hand skill performed at a world-class level.
