Combining interactive magic, mind reading, and comedy, Jason Alan Magic has become one of the top performing magic acts in the United States. Prepare to be amazed during our 90th Anniversary Magic Show!  Jason’s interest in magic did not come from seeing a magician at a friend’s birthday party or receiving a magic kit at a very early age. Instead, it began from an encounter with a homeless gentleman at Venice Beach. Jason and his family came across someone who appeared to have nothing. Jason quickly learned this was not true and this man had power, the power of magic.
