Jason Verners, Magician
Originally from West Coast of Canada, Jason grew up mastering the art of sleight-of-hand. As a preteen, Verners met veteran Victoria magician Murray Hatfield through the Victoria Magic Circle, a local group of magicians. Hatfield became a mentor to Verners and since their time sharing a stage together has said that Verners has become one of the best on the island. Over the last decade, Verners has been performing his magic all across North America. He has taken home international awards including a gold medal at PCAM and a bronze medal in The International Youth Magic Championships in Las Vegas. He was recently nominated for the Canadian Rising Star at the Allan Slaight Awards. Jason has been on the cover of Vanish Magazine and his illusions have even been featured on The Space Channel, Syfy and the film: The Predator! During this time of social distancing the 22 year old prestidigitator is hosting cutting edge, multi-camera, live performances through the platform Moment House.
