I’m excited to return to the Magic Castle in Hollywood this coming weekend, this time to perform with Theory11 LIVE, a show made up of various guest artists from the Theory11 group! Shows lately have been a lot of fun! I just got back from a trip to North Carolina to perform with my buddy Ivan Pecel at UNC Pembroke. Sat on the runway for 2.5 hours in Raleigh trying to get home, though. That wasn’t fun. But by the time I got to my layover in Baltimore, that plane was having maintenance too, so I ended up getting home … Read more
Just got word I’ll be returning to perform at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, OH again on August 23rd. Bowling Green has recently become one of my favorite schools to play, partly because of it being so close to home, but mostly because of the ROCKIN crowds I’ve had there the last couple times. Two weeks ago, we had over 650 in attendance! If you’re near Northwest Ohio on August 23rd, be sure to catch the show! For a complete list of shows, visit http://michaelkentLIVE.com/tour
The Magic Newswire is a blog/podcast for magicians. There you will see interviews with entertainers like David Blaine, Lance Burton, Neil Patrick Harris and many others. I was recently interviewed about playing colleges and about my recent trip to Korea. You can listen to the interview via flash HERE.
My good friend Jon Petz produces “Miracles and Magic,” a benefit show every year for “A Kid Again,” which is an organization that helps kids who are fighting illness do fun activities despite all their medical bills and stress. Part of that show is an opening night party at a Martini Bar, happening tonight. The martini bar, Martini Park at Easton, is a SWEET environment for entertainment. Tickets are $100 each and all proceeds go to the charity. I donated my time to the cause, along with a gang of other magicians, local and national. To promote the event, some … Read more
It’s back to the grind performing around these 50 United States. I started off my return from Korea performing at Indiana University Southeast. We had a small crowd (about 50), but the Student Programming Council was thrilled with the turnout! The mascot at IUS (I think would be cooler if the initials were IUSE), is not the Hoosier. It’s the Grenadier. I didn’t know what that was. I thought that’s the stuff they put in coke to make homemade cherry coke. I was informed that is GrenaDINE and that a Grenadier is a person in the war who throws grenades. … Read more
Ellusionist.com, a web site for young magicians to learn stuff, has written about me on their blog. “It was an incredible 15-day tour on 10 US Army bases,” Kent said. “I was doing college shows and I loved doing them, but I wanted to give back more. These people were so appreciative it was really fulfilling and it became difficult to leave each night.” Read the full text here.

Finally got to see the results of a photo shoot I recently did with Michelle Black. Michelle is the photographer with whom I did the last round of promo shots and I was really pleased with the results. This shoot was done at and outside of Michelle’s new studio space. Michelle’s got a really unique feel for the photos where she lets loose and has fun and the result are photos that almost have a sort of dark feel to them. That background intrigues me, because many photos that I appear in almost have the opposite affect, that being a … Read more
Wow – a ton of people have seen this video. I’ve even met people at live shows who have seen the video. It’s no “Evolution of Dance,” but 100k is a lot of views! [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/v/e6R5aFqbnrA&hl=en_US&fs=1]
