Illusionist JASON BISHOP to Perform at West Chester U.

Magician Jason Bishop to Perform at West Chester UniversityWest Chester University’s WCU Live! performing arts series continues its 25th Anniversary Season with world-renowned magician, Jason Bishop, on Saturday, November 2, at 7:30 p.m., in the Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall, Philips Memorial Building, 700 S. High Street, West Chester. Tickets range from $15 - $27 and are available at or 610-436-2266.

You won’t believe your eyes as Bishop, one of America’s hottest illusionists, mystifies with spellbinding magic, award-winning sleight of hand and grand illusions, all set to a modern rock and pop soundtrack. He might read your mind one second or make goldfish appear out of nowhere the next. Bishop’s wit and unique style have led him from China to Paris and Hollywood to New York City, as well as every state in between and over 20 countries on 6 continents.

Bishop is a Pennsylvania native who attended Salisbury High School in Allentown, as well as Kutztown University. He now performs all over the world, bringing one of the most dynamic touring magic shows today to audiences. From turning $1 into a $100 and making his adorable Yorkshire Terrier, Gizmo, (the star of the show according to Bishop), disappear, Bishop is a consummate professional. Close-up magic is projected on a giant screen.

John Rhein, Director of Cultural and Community Affairs at West Chester says, “We are so honored to have Jason Bishop here at West Chester University. This is definitely a show for all ages, and we invite the surrounding community to our campus to join us for this thrilling and funny production.”
