    Description:

     In a style reminiscent of a late-night talk show, self-proclaimed “Smartass” Michael Kent invites the audience to laugh with him at the absurdity of a modern-day magician. He combines his sarcastic and irreverent sense of humor with mind-blowing magic in a way that seems to let the audience “in on the joke.” Michael has been nominated for multiple Campus Activities Awards including “Best New Rising Star,” “Best Small Venue Artist,” and 2012 Entertainer of the Year by Campus Activities Magazine. As he tours college campuses all over the country, Michael’s audiences are experiencing what its like when a stand up comic performs (and occasionally pokes fun at) the art of magic.
