Choosing entertainment for college audiences is not an easy task for any school advisor, activities board or director. Many times, your typical choice for entertainment just won't cut it. Jay Mattioli is anything BUT typical.
This two time magic champion will have your students laughing, their minds boggling, and just simply FREAK THEM OUT!
Set to the latest rage in rock, pop, and hip-hop music, Jay's show features some of the most visual magic seen nowhere else in the world. See Jay perform startling magic with live animals, An audience member correctly predicts Jay's favorite movie of the 1980's during hilarious interactive magic, and be stunned when Jay LEVITATES A STUDENT VOLUNTEER 5 FEET IN THE AIR!
Not only will students witness the magic, but each night, Jay will invite several audience members on stage to participate in an illusion with Jay where he teaches them how to control their minds with Telekinesis and make various objects MOVE BY FORCES UNSEEN! (We can't tell you too many details. You'll have to see it for yourself)
Campuses throughout the country are unanimously impressed with Jay's relatability to student audiences. In addition to appearing and disappearing on college stages, Jay can frequently be seen showcasing at the National Association of Campus Activities (NACA) confrences, where college programers can view a live performance sample of Jay's light hearted, yet fast paced array of illusions, comedy and audience interactive magic at its best!

Our audience loved him. This was exactly the type of "clean" act that we were looking for. His performance was wonderful and left everyone around me asking "How did he do that?" Our visiting students and their parents were thoroughly entertained.Thank you again for suggesting Jay for our event. We will definitely work with Jay and The College Agency again."
