New Photos from Michelle Black!

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

Vote Michael Kent for Newest Rising Star

Hey Everyone! I sure am looking forward to Thanksgiving!  I’ve already had a couple Thanksgiving Dinners – a couple more to go.  Interesting note – the following question has come up twice this week: What’s the difference between a yam and a sweet potato?  My guess was that a yam is a yam until it goes to prison and gets a nickname.  But that’s just a guess. One of the things I’m most thankful for this Thanksgiving is all the love and support I’ve received from fans and friends.  All of the great people that have expressed interest in my … Read more

On-Site Showcase Selection Winner!

On Saturday night, I was selected to perform a showcase at the NACA MidAmerica Regional Conference in Peoria, IL! At the conference, they leave one of the final spots in the showcase open for what is called an “on-site showcase selection” which means that students vote for who they’d like to see in that spot. More than 300 students voted, and they selected me! It was a GREAT honor to get the vote and I really appreciate the support of everyone. I performed three excerpts from my hour show, including “Seeing Into the Future,” “The Money Trick,” and “Stars.” I … Read more

New Hampshire

I’m feeling much better. Whatever vile illness existed inside my gut last week is much less painful this week. Still not 100%, but feeling much better. This weekend I flew back to Manchester, NH to perform in New London, NH at Colby Sawyer College. First, let me say something – When I got to the Manchester Airport Sunday, John McCain’s “Straight Talk Express” was there. I didn’t take a photo because my camera was put away in my bag. Apparently he was christening a Nascar race or a gun rally or something. In any case – everyone made a big … Read more

"The Beaver Fever"

Hahaha. That title’s gonna get my blog tons of hits. I’ll explain. It’s not as dirty as you think, perverts. Turns out I contracted some sort of foodbourne illness from the last string of shows. Who knows where it came from – could be the raw oysters or the snapper or the Philly Cheesesteak for all I know. I got pretty sick – the kind of sick that makes you ache from head to toe and makes your mouth go numb. Went to the Dr. and his guess was that I was suffering from an illness that…well I won’t get … Read more
