Jett Skrien - Illusionist



Recognized as one of the fastest growing young illusionists, Jett Skrien has been performing his “high caliber, innovative, engaging, spectacular, and very professional show” (Mary T., Marshall City Council) across the country. Jett not only brings a fresh, new perspective to the art of magic, but also presents his Award-Winning Magic with the “stage presence of a savvy veteran” (Marshall Independent Newspaper). Jett has had the opportunity to perform internationally in Canada and Europe, as well as in the entertainment capital of the United States: Branson, Missouri. One of his leading accomplishments was attending a summer magic camp in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, where he was selected, along with 100 other students, to learn the art of magic from superstars such as David Blaine, Criss Angel, David Copperfield, and Michael Carbonaro.
