With brilliant displays of whirling scarves, pearl white doves and illusions to arrest the senses, The Magic of Mike Wong has delighted audiences across the country with excitement. He can mount a stage of full-scale illusion of the masters or fascinate a banquet audience with an always changing repertoire of humorous sleight of hand. His close-up magic must be seen to be disbelieved.
Grants from major corporations, school districts and art councils have helped bring his show into over 200 Alaskan villages and small towns. Mike traveled from Point Barrow to the tip of the Aleutian Islands by dog sled, snowmobile, riverboat and bush plane over ten incredible and unforgettable years. Mike has even performed his magic on the frozen Russian-American border on the tiny island of Little Diomede in the center of the Bering Strait.
When working on a grand scale, Mike recreates the dangerous feats of the great Houdini. He escapes from a straitjacket while suspended hundreds of feet in the air or survives being locked inside a water-filled milk can. With a blink of an eye, he magically trades places with his attractive assistant and he even saws her in half with a giant buzzsaw.
