LPAA presents Jared Sherlock:  Comedy/Magic Show for the whole family

Jared Sherlock is an award-winning illusionist and comic magician whose clean comedy entertainment has thrilled audiences nationwide.  Audience members joining Jared onstage, high-energy comedy juggling, and a contemporary performance of the infamous bullet-catch using a paintball gun are just a few of the things you might encounter during Jared’s show.

Jared began his love of the art of magic at the very early age of eight years old. Holiday ‘Magic Shows’ for the family became a tradition at the Sherlocks’. What was considered a hobby, with the invaluable help of his parents; family and friends, very quickly became a profession by the age of thirteen.

Jared Sherlock graduated with distinction from Saint John’s University where he received a B.A. in Theater Entrepreneurship. He is also a graduate of the Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theater’s summer intensive in Blue Lake, California. As an actor, The American College Theater Festival has nominated him twice for the Irene Ryan award for his performances in Our Town (2008) and Macbeth (2010). As an award-winning entrepreneur, and a classically trained illusionist, Jared performs nationwide and he has also toured internationally in Shanghai, China and Hong Kong.

His work has been featured by the Wall Street Journal online, MSN Money, and the internationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio show. In 2010, Saint John’s University named him the student Entrepreneur of the year. In 2008, recognized Jared as one of the United State’s Top 20 Dorm-based Businesses.
