Magic Mike Jacobson is no amateur both in the comedy and magic scene. Hailed as one of the magician’s magicians, Magic Mike joins America’s Got Talent season 18 to show what New York City’s leading mentalist can offer to the world.

Magic Mike Jacobson Blends Comedy and Magic Together

Magic Mike grew his interest in magic at nine years old, when he witnessed a trick during a day camp. He showed intense passion in mentalism that he became one of the youngest members ever admitted to the Junior Program at the Magic Castle. Since then, magic has become his bread and butter, impressing audiences in various events while also introducing his name in different countries.

According to his website, Magic Mike “blends new-school magic, mentalism, and comedy, with old-school charm.” As he puts it, he performs to do more than magic, but to inject joy and awe. 

“He doesn’t just get hired to do magic, he gets hired to blow minds. It’s not about making people ‘believe.’ It’s about making everyone from the gullible to the skeptics, question everything they know about life,” his website bio reads. 

It’s safe to say that Magic Mike is one of the most in-demand magicians in America. He is the first magician to be named Forbes 30 Under 30. He’s also appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, propelling everyone’s jaw to drop trick after trick.

Fans Are Thrilled to See Him on America’s Got Talent

By the end of March, Magic Mike announced that he’s joining America’s Got Talent. The mentalist uploaded a photo of himself posing in front of the AGT stage, subsequently captioning the same “#magicisreal.”

The announcement has excited his fans and followers on Instagram. His fans and followers took to the comment section to express their excitement for the magician.

“Make ‘em believers, Mike!” one supporter wrote.

“Minds about to be blown,” another user commented.

One user even asked what “strategy” Magic Mike plans to do this time. Meanwhile, another stated that they are “so proud” of Mike for taking his shot at the competition. 

To witness Magic Mike’s audition, be sure to tune in on America’s Got Talent every Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
