A self-proclaimed “smartass,” Michael Kent succeeds at changing the old saying that “nobody likes a smartass.”
Comedian and Magician Michael Kent gives the ancient art of magic a facelift with an irreverent and often satirical comedic spin. He has performed for audiences all over the globe from The Magic Castle in Hollywood, California to US Troops serving overseas in 15 different countries. He’s been seen in over 500 college campuses and in command performances for some of America’s favorite companies like Disney, AT&T, Honda and Citizen Watch. After all this, he still feels like more of a Professional Smartass than a Magician.
Michael was named “2014 Entertainer of the Year” after being nominated for the award in Campus Activities Magazine for three consecutive years; 2012, 2013 and 2014. Michael has 5 career nominations in the publication after having been nominated for “Best Rising Star” and “Best Small Venue Artist” in 2009. The Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities (APCA) named him “2014 Magician of the Year.”
In a style reminiscent of a late-night talk show, Michael invites the audience to laugh with him at the absurdity of a modern-day magician. He combines his sarcastic sense of humor with mind-blowing magic in a way that seems to let the audience “in on the joke.” This style has made Michael one of America’s top comedy-magicians earning him loyal fans around the country in the process. As he tours around the world, Michael’s audiences are experiencing what it’s like when a stand up comic performs (and occasionally pokes fun at) the art of magic!
