“Kent is brilliant and brutally funny.” – The Joplin Globe

Journalists Clueless in Covering Magicians By Joe Hadsall, Globe Features Editor
July 12, 2013

There are so many incredible magicians out there. One of them, Michael Kent, will be performing at MSSU on Sept. 17.
Trust me, you want to see him perform. Kent is brilliant and brutally funny.

I’ll be hounding him for an interview closer to his performance, mainly because I’ve interviewed him before. I know about how he got into magic and his unique presentation.

“Oh sure, Joe,” you might think. “You just know his story because you already know how he does all of his tricks, so, of course, you don’t care about that.”

Kent is a stage magician, and I’ve stuck to the world of close-up. I have no idea how Kent does some stuff, and I don’t care, because the story of how he got into magic is pretty interesting. How seriously he takes comedy is fascinating.

    Magicians are story tellers and the story telling should connect with an audience’s child like innocence. Succeed at that and they will believe you, whether it’s true or not. Stage magic show is so pretty and funny.
