Magician Extraordinaire Jason Byrne was born in Fribourg, Switzerland, but the magic touch began one Christmas Day just outside Cleveland, Ohio. He found a present under the tree from his grandfather—an empty cardboard box that made a sponge rabbit appear. At the early age of 6, he was awakened to magic—soon to become a fascination.
Fast forward some 15 years to Los Angeles, where Jason became a regular at local dinner theaters: Wizardz, The Comedy and Magic Club, and Hollywood’s famous Magic Castle. His style and approach caught the eye of producer Gary Ouellette, and soon he was invited to perform on NBC's World's Greatest Magic, followed by Fox’s Magic on the Edge.
In quick order, Byrne earned several major distinctions, including the Golden Lion's Head Award presented by master illusionists Siegfried and Roy. Then, two years in succession, he was voted Stage Magician of the Year by The Academy of Magical Arts.
Touring road shows in Canada, New Zealand and South America formed the beginning of Jason’s international appeal. This appeal increased with invitations to perform at the London Palladium, the Lido in Paris, the Wintergarten in Berlin and at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel in Tokyo, Japan.
No stranger to the City of Lights, this Las Vegan has appeared in such revue shows as Splash at the Riviera, Folies Bergere at the Tropicana, and V, The Ultimate Variety Show now playing at Planet Hollywood’s hotel & casino. Periodically, Jason disappears from the desert sands and has been spotted performing at sea aboard the luxury cruise liners.
Jason Byrne has taken one of the world’s oldest forms of entertainment--MAGIC—and propelled it head-first into the 21st century.
Welcome to the future of entertainment.
