World-class illusionist to make magic in Williamsport

WILLIAMSPORT — Internationally-recognized illusionist Jason Bishop will bring his larger than life illusions and award-winning sleight of hand talent to the Community Art Center in Williamsport, at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 22.

The Jason Bishop Show is the largest touring illusion show in the United States. Bishop, along with assistant Kim Hess, gives a high energy, highly-interactive performance set to an upbeat blend of rock and pop music. With exclusive large illusions and “close-up” magic captured on live cameras and projected onto large LCD screens, The Jason Bishop Show is designed to entertain audiences of all ages.

Currently the only illusionist in the United States to perform the rare Double Levitation, Plasma illusion and Op-Art on tour, Bishop is known for his state-of-the-art, modern and accessible magic. A big hit at every show is when he transforms a $1 bill into a $100 bill — and generously gives it to one lucky person in the crowd.

Hess’s flawless execution of movement and multiple costume changes add to the show’s visual appeal.

The Jason Bishop Show has appeared at notable venues including Disney Cruise Lines and Celebrity Cruise Lines in Europe and Alaska, the Magic Castle in Hollywood, Calif., and in Las Vegas.
