March19 at 6 pm, watch me on Kalamzoo Lively Arts. Here's the promo:
"Fun, entertaining, engaging, interactive, these are all just a few words to describe the amazing magic of Joe Bennett. Performing for an event of mine at the Kalamazoo State Theatre, Joe held the audience's attention with delight from doors open to close. From his close up magic to his on stage presentation, solo acts and those with an assistant, the audience couldn't get enough of the Amazing Magic of Joe Bennett! I highly recommend him for audiences of all ages, large or small events. When you want your guests to say, AMAZING! you bring Joe Bennett."
- Laura Kay Henderson, Owner/Producer of Bare Backstage Productions
Where will I be performing next?
How about the Paw Paw Wine and Harvest Festival. I have two shows this year at the Lakefront Amphitheater. 10:00 am and 2:30 pm.
Once again, I will be performing with Crawlspace Eviction Theater for their "Family Friendly Variety Show". If you've ever been to this show, you know it will be incredibly fun for everyone. You will see family friendly improv comedy by the Crawlsapce Eviction Improv troupe, hilarious music by Kalamazoo's Uncle Kooky, the youth improv team, "Thank you for shopping at Meijer", and my amazing magic.
The show starts at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $5 per person, or $15 per family. Come early and you might even see me perform some close-up magic right at your table.
If you have wanted to see me perform, here is a schedule of my next few public appearances:
June 1, 2019, 2:00 - 3:00 PM
Family show with Crawlspace Eviction Theater.
Location: First Baptist Church, 315 West Michigan Avenue, Kalamazoo, MI 49007
Tickets can be purchased at the door and online (More information to come).
July 9, 2019
I will be performing at the Kosciusko County Fair. Magic shows will be at 10:15 AM and 4:45 PM. I will also be putting on a Magic Workshop at 2:00 PM as well as tying balloon animals during the day.
August 7-10, 2019
I will once again be performing street magic at Abbott's Magic Get-Together. Schedule to be announced.
Saturday, April 27 is my next public show. I will be in Vermontville, MI where I am performing at the Vermontville Maple Syrup Festival. The show starts at 4:30 pm. Afterwards, I am putting on a magic workshop so you can learn some magic as well.
Tomorrow is the day to come see me perform my magic at the Crawlspace Eviction Family Show.
My next public show will be on April 13 at 2:00 at the First Baptist Church, 315 West Michigan Avenue, Kalamazoo, MI 49007. Once again, I will be performing in conjunction with Crawlspace Theater Productions.
This will be an incredibly fun show! In addition to my family friendly magic, you will see some of the best adult improvisors performing material suitable for all ages. Make sure you bring the kids so they can see improvisors their own age having fun with this super-fun art form.
I recommend that you purchase your tickets early. If the last show is any indicator, we are expecting it to be another sellout.
I'm looking forward to attending this year's Abbott close-Up Convention. This year it will be held on March 22-23 in Colon, MI. This is a chance for close-up magicians from all over to gather and show off some of the close-up magic they have been working on. This year is my 21st year attending. One of the things I am looking forward to is the "People's Choice Close-Up Contest". This year I plan on competing with a new routine I've been working on. Whether I win or not, this will definitely be a fun time.
If you haven't been to this convention, I whole heatedly recommend you attend. You can register online here:
Last month, I performed in the "All-Ages Family Show" with Crawlspace Eviction Theater. It was more successful than we ever could have imagined. We quite literally packed the theater to capacity and everyone had a super fun time.
Well, guess what? We're going to do it again!
When: Saturday, April 13 at 2:00 pm.
Where: Crawlspace Theater Productions, 315 W. Michigan Ave., Kalamazoo, MI 49007
