...A little bit about Michael James 

Michael James’ passion for magic was ignited at the age of 7, while watching Doug Henning perform on the Muppet Show - Michael’s journey through magic has since taken him from his childhood home in Newfoundland Canada, to Southern California, where he studied sleight of hand with Dale Salwak at the prestigious Chavez Studio of Magic. Michael built and refined his show in the Los Angeles magic scene until 1999 when a 10-day contract lured him to Nova Scotia, where he now resides. Since then, Michael’s reputation as a world class entertainer has led to 50 repeat appearances on CTV’s Breakfast television, two appearances on APTN’s nationally broadcast “The Candy Show” and a contract as the official pre-show act and MC for CBC’s “This Hour Has 22 Minutes”.

Whether you see him perform his signature banquet show or strolling through the crowd on the convention room floor, Michael exquisitely combines his finely developed sleight of hand with a sense of mystery and unique wit to create a highly energized experience that is sure to astound!
