"Post Modern Magic"
As Seen On NBC's World's Greatest Magic!
Voted Magic Castle's Stage Magician of the Year
for two consecutive years!
Byrne was born in Fribourg, Switzerland and raised in Windsor, Ontario, Canada,
but the magic touch began on a Christmas Day in Rocky River, Ohio.
As a six-year old, he found a present under the
Christmas tree from his grandfather a cardboard box that made a little sponge bunny
vanish and reappear upon the boy's command. He made that bunny disappear a hundred times
Jason's awakening to magic soon became fascination. Fast forward several
years to Colon, Michigan the Magic Capital of the World where Jason met Brett
Daniels at one of the summer magic fests. Shortly after that first meeting, Jason
sought and received, a brief but intense course of private instruction from this rising
young master magician.
After fine-tuning his act, Jason emerged ready for his early
competitions. He won first place at the 1989 Michigan Magic Day and then, in short order,
a sequence of firsts at Abbott's Magic Get-Together, the Columbus
Magi-Fest and Magie Montreal.
At age 21 he became a regular at dinner theaters: Wizardz, The Comedy
and Magic Club and the Magic Castle. It was only a matter of time before he was discovered
and invited to perform on NBC's "World's Greatest Magic II."
With this nationally televised appearance, Jason's career moved into a new dimension.
In quick succession, Jason achieved several major international
distinctions, including the Golden Lion's Head Award, presented by master
illusionists Siegfried and Roy. With the acceptance of his peers, he was
chosen to be the April, 1997 cover story for Magic Magazine the
largest independent magic magazine in the world. That same year, and again in 1998, he was
named Stage Magician of the Year by The Academy of Magical Arts.
Jason has performed not only in the U.S., but throughout the world. He
has brought his unique brand of entertainment to Japan, Germany, Portugal, Taiwan, New
Zealand, Colombia, Brazil, Canada, Holland, Spain and France.
Always with an eye on Las Vegas, Jason made the leap early this year
he now performs twice nightly in the revue show "Splash" at the Riviera
hotel/Casino on the Strip. He has taken one of the world's oldest forms of entertainment,
magic, and propelled it head-first into the 21st century.
