Bowling Green once again proved to be an amazing audience last night. They got to witness some brand new magic that I had never before taken to the stage, including an awesome trick that happens in the middle of the audience. Here are some photos from the show!

I was invited to speak at Columbus’s Pecha Kucha event on August 11th. If you’re not familiar with Pecha Kucha, here’s a brief description from their own website:

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.

I decided to speak about the conception of a magic trick. How does an original magic routine begin and develop into a commercial piece of magical performance art? I told an audience of hundreds at the event in 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Below you’ll find my presentation!

Since I’m such a big deal and all, I get asked to be on big-time television shows like Public Access in Wheeling, WV. I know, I know. I’m getting recognized everywhere now. I kid, but in reality, this is a pretty cool program when you realize that it’s produced entirely by high school students with the help of Nathan Marshall and the Brooke High School Video Production teaching staff.

Visit Nathan’s YouTube channel to see more episodes of “Ohio Valley Tonite.” When I was in high school, we had a pretty nice production studio, and I would have loved the opportunity to work on projects like this. Students are learning shot composition, editing, green screen, lighting, audio and more.

I recently appeared on “Good Day Columbus” with Johnny DiLoretto to promote the “Free Beer Tour*.” It’s a series of events where I’ll show you how to win free drinks from your friends using “can’t lose” bar bets.

The next Free Beer Tour* evening will be THIS THURSDAY at Brewski’s in Upper Arlington, OH. For more info, visit Dimensional Entertainment.

Here’s a funny side-project I did recently. My hands are the ones coming in from the bottom. And while many people have told me the voice of “Keith” sounds just like me, it’s not me.

The FREE BEER TOUR* starts this Thursday night, April 28, 7pm at Average Joe’s (Polaris). I’ve told you about it before but the event is called the “Free Beer Tour*” because I’ll be there to teach you crazy, impossible, and funny tricks you can do at a bar to con your friends out of a beer. Simple as that. It’s a fun way to liven up any night out and even make some new friends! Sorry we won’t actually be giving away free beer (hence the *)

You’ll learn up to 4 new ‘bar bet’ tricks during each event. To sign up and for more information on dates/times/locations, visit

UPDATE: Watch for me on FOX28 Good Day Columbus TOMORROW (April 26) with Johnny DiLoretto!

Friday I’ll be continuing my colllege tour, performing at West Virginia Wesleyan College in Buckhannon, WV. Then Saturday I’ll be back for the other event that Columbus folks can attend!

Tikvah Live Presents: Michael Kent, Comedian & Magician
Fundraiser at Beth Tikvah Congregation in Worthington, OH
April 30!

This will be my full show for you all to enjoy. They’re offering a special $20 advance ticket price to people ages 21-35. Otherwise tickets are $35 in advance. All tickets $40 at the door. See the poster for details.

I’ll be performing a special 25 minute set at the Columbus Comedy Festival at Wild Goose Creative this Friday, April 15th. I hope you can come see me, but more importantly, a ton of other hilarious acts. I recently had the chance to meet some of the other comedians performing at the 3-day festival during a photo shoot for Columbus Alive and I’m already looking forward to seeing them.

The Columbus Alive recently ran a story about the festival and were kind enough to dedicate a page to a few of the comedians appearing at the fest, myself included. Click the photo for my story.

Tickets are $10/night at the door and the festival runs Thursday, Friday and Saturday. My set is Friday night. For more information, visit Wild Goose Creative.
