Jason Bishop is an award-winning illusionist, who is currently performing his show “Straight Up Magic” at The New Victory Theater. We had the opportunity to see him in action and it was jaw dropping and definitely worth the trek out of the neighborhood!
Jason incorporates traditional illusion tricks and takes them to a whole new level. This 1 hour and 45 minute show gives you a close up view of some of the craziest sleight-of-hand magic in over a dozen separate tricks. With a high tech spin, our favorite trick was making a live goldfish appear out of an iPod. One minute you are watching a cute animation of a goldfish swimming across the iPod screen, the next minute the goldfish is in his hand and he’s putting into in a glass of water. My son’s eyes were wide with excitement and disbelief as he made his assistant levitate into the air more then once to heights unimaginable. With just the right amount of audience interaction and bringing guests into the stage, this was a very entertaining and magical show for all!
