2014 Entertainer of the Year and 2014 Magician of the Year, Michael gives magic a face-lift with irreverent comedy and satire. His unique style of performing magic has made him a favorite in college campuses, clubs and corporate events. Michael has performed for audiences all over the globe -- in 47 U.S. states to troops serving overseas. Many clients book him year after year because attendees can't wait to see the show again! In a style reminiscent of a late-night talk show, Michael invites the audience to laugh with him at the absurdity of a modern-day magician. Michael's audiences experience what it's like when a stand-up comic performs (and occasionally pokes fun at) the art of magic. Michael's shows are appropriate for many events including the following: - Annual meetings and banquets - Company events - College and university events - Product launch/Promotional events - Networking events and social gatherings "The best we've had. I'm proud you're from Columbus!" - Jungle Jack Hanna, TV's Wildlife Advocate and Director Emeritus of Columbus Zoo "Michael Kent may be Columbus's most talented. There's no one else in his league." -Johnny DiLoretto, ABC6/FOX28 Columbus "Michael Kent nimbly shifts from comedic to amazing." - Columbus Dispatch, 3/14/2012 "You are brilliant." - Jym Ganahl, NBC4 Columbus "Michael Kent nimbly shifts from comedic to amazing." - Columbus Dispatch, 3/14/2012

Nate performed a magic show for my granddaughters surprise 6th birthday party. He exceeded all my expectations & many of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed it & they wanted to hire him for one of their events. The show was great for kids & adults. I'm hoping to have him perform a show at our company holiday party this year. Thanks Nate!!

We hired Matthew David Stanley to perform at a Cub Scout event. He did an amazing job keeping the kids attention and providing a show that the kids and adults enjoyed. We've used many comedian/magician related acts in the past and this was the best feedback to date. Great job, would definitely use again!

My presentations are perfect for the business professionals looking to improve their presentation skills. I offer keynote addresses as well as highly interactive workshops in which the attendees present their material which I videotape. Then, we take a look at the tape, so that the coaching member can see themselves as an audience sees them. I then break down the presentation and provide feedback on what the speaker is doing correctly and in what areas the speaker can make some improvements. I have delivered this keynote address and conducted workshops for insurance professionals, CPAs, manufacturing companies, nonprofit organizations as well as college students in film studies, MBA programs and entrepreneurial studies. My clients include Materion Brush Performance Alloys, Gorman-Rupp Industrial Pumps, the YWCA, The Hylant Group (business insurance), SSOE (architects and engineers), The Collaborative (architects and engineers), SUNOCO, Burger King, Holiday Inn, Gilmore, Jasion & Mahler, LTD, Lutheran Homes Society, Calphalon, Bowling Green State University, The University of Toledo, University of Central Oklahoma and Owens Community College.

I am a musical/standup comedian with more than 15 years of experience. I hit the stage with a guitar and a high-energy redneck/southern style that crowds find fun and easy to identify with. I have been on Bob and Tom Syndicated radio and toured exclusively with Donnie Baker and the Pork Pistols for the last 4 to 5 years. My original songs are crowd favorites and will be in your head well into the next work week. Visit my website for videos and interviews.
