Returning for his second performance at Brigham Young University-Idaho, illusionist Mike Super will perform on May 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Hart Auditorium as part of the Spring 2019 Center Stage Performing Arts Series.
Super’s ever-growing popularity has garnered him many prestigious awards and honors, including being the only magician in history to win a live magic competition on primetime network television.
In addition, his other accomplishments include being named “Entertainer of the Year,” “Best Performing Artist of the Year,” “Best Novelty Performer of the Year,” and he was voted the “Favorite Mystifier” on NBC’s television show Phenomenon. Super was also a finalist on America’s Got Talent.
Despite all of this, Mike humbly insists it is the loyalty of his fan base that has been most rewarding. His legions of fans call themselves “the Superfreaks,” and they number in the millions.
The secret to Mike’s success is his natural ability to entertain and fascinate people. He has pioneered a new form of magic with his own inimitable, down-to-earth style and personality. Mike has brought the art of magic back to the people. He transcends the “trick” and connects personally with his audience on a level they can relate to. Whether it’s through television, stage, or simply one-on-one, Mike Super’s personality and humor reaches out and enchants the public.
Tickets for the performance are $12 for the general public and $7 for BYU-Idaho students. To purchase tickets online, visit go.byui.edu/center-stage/ms. Tickets are also available for purchase at the University Store Ticket Office or by calling 208-496-3170.
