Category: Convention   Posted by: SIMONE MARRON


Michael Dardant, the "Magic Mike" of New Orleans, is the perfect entertainer on any stage. As a magician, he presents a completely original act involving stunning sleight of hand, pickpocketing and a stuffed tiger!
In 2012 the world of magic witnessed Michael claiming 13 championship awards, including 1st place and People’s Choice in close-up at the I.B.M. convention, making him the most decorated magician in North America that year. In 2014 he again took 1st place in close-up at the I.B.M. convention.
What makes each show unique is the adaptation of skills he has gathered from so many varying performance types. Writing with comedians, performing with improv artists, and hanging out with fire jugglers, make for a well-rounded entertainer. Michael has been featured as a magician, comedian, and juggler on over 20 different TV networks, and in music videos for artists such as Juvenile and Sheryl Crow.
He has planned illusions for theater performances such as Cats, Merlin, and Once Upon a Mattress and choreographed sleight of hand routines for films such as The Last Exorcism and The Lucky One. As "Michael Dardant" becomes a name seen in credits on series such as HBO's "Treme", he is most proud of his roles in several award-winning independent films. He is also the creator of a New Orleans comedy series, called Below Sea Level.
