The anti-cheesy magician. Hired by everyone from Google to Disney to the US State Dept., and featured on the Ellen DeGeneres show!
Highest reviewed magician on Yelp in the US. "That's just amazing! WOW! You know what, from now on, whenever I'm amazed by something I'll just go, Mike Jacobson!" - Ellen DeGeneres.
Hey, I'm Mike and I want to make you look awesome by making your event unforgettable. I want your guests to laugh until they cry and have to pick up their jaws off the floor (assuming the floor is clean, that is). I specialize in magic that doesn't suck.
100% MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE. I'm confident that you and your guests will LOVE my entertainment. And if you don't, it's totally on me. If you'd like to check me out before booking, I'm performing at the Magic Castle this Thursday and Friday! If you'd like to go, let me know and I'll put you on my guest list. No pressure at all.
THE CLIFF NOTES TO MY BACKGROUND
Alright so I know you're busy, so I'll keep it short. I was going to write this in the 3rd person but then thought this might be a little more personal. That's my style! I'm 25 years old, and a twelve year, award-winning member of the Magic Castle. I'm one of the youngest people ever admitted as a member. I'm the highest rated magician on the Yelp review site in the entire USA (please check out the reviews!). I'm a Forbes and Business Insider 30 under 30. I've performed in London, Poland, Spain, France, and Ecuador and I'm a Magic Castle Junior Achievement award winner; an award for excellence in performance amongst up and coming magicians in the world. Yes, I'm totally bragging, but I want to make sure you know I'm serious about awesome magic!
WHAT SETS ME APART?
My goal is honestly to do more than just perform, but to help bring the party. That's why I do magic- because I love to help people have an awesome time. Since I'm younger than most magicians, I've been told I bring an energy to the room, and your party, that not many of the older magicians can. I do so by just being real with people- through comedy and contemporary magic. I think the classic magician with old stories & a top hat is a little outdated! I connect with your guests so they TRULY enjoy themselves & you're known as THE best party host.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:
"Mike is not only an amazing magician- he is warm, charming and charismatic. The party went from memorable to unforgettable due in large part to Mike's presence! He is terrific!"
-Jan & Don Elliott, Menlo Park, CA.
"His magic was great for small groups too and was infinitely creative. He did an iPhone trick was amazing and a nice update on the typical card tricks you run into."
-Jake Meyer, LA, CA
"I feel like usually you get just a funny guy, or just a good magician- but he's an amazing mix of the two. So personable, so kind, and really helped make my event a hit."
-Josh Faryab, Brentwood, CA
"To get a magician with great tricks (sorry "effects") I feel like you're destined to have to put up with a power-nerd, complete cheese ball, or total creeper. Not this guy. Mike probably has a future in stand up comedy if he decides to quit magic."
-Brendan Harper, Hermosa Beach, CA
