This was so much fun!! I took part in this amazing collaboration of artists as we "pass" an apple "around the world". Look for me at about the 11:56 mark. :)
I was recently interviewed for "Kalamazoo Lively Arts" program on WGVU. Here is the complete interview with video from a recent show I did. Enjoy!
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.

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.
