Variety artist including Comedy, Magicians, Hypnosis and some Circus Arts

Jaysin Katsikis made his ground breaking debut at age 17 on Broadway at Caroline's Comedy Club and restaurant Comedy Nation. Charlie Chaplin gave Jaysin his first gig at Caroline's ~ or rather, the manager of the club dressed as the famous tramp did. After he saw the young magician amaze crowds on the sidewalk outside the club he began pantomiming with him. When the two were done Jaysin, only 17, asked the huge crowd that had gathered to step inside for drinks as a sign of gratitude for the show. With the flood of people stepping through the doors a not so silent Charlie Chaplin ( Lance Hallowell ) hired Jaysin to entertain guests nightly.

Jaysin was later one of the youngest featured artists at the NYC Fringe Festival in 1998 and enjoyed acting in small community dramas,performing in comedy clubs around Manhattan and a Pizza Hut commercial. Then appearing on Rosie O' Donnell's show in the late 90's. Jaysin Katsikis developed powerful original material perfecting his magical subtleties. Greatly influenced by various forms of art and music, especially the free-flowing jazz artistry of Miles Davis and Ella Fitzgerald, the New Jersey born and raised dynamo presents an eclectic spontaneous show! Mixing music, comedy and light with an ever evolving, always surprising palette of magical delights and drama. Blending side show skills, comedy and performance art. This inventive magician delights audiences internationally.

Jaysin Katsikis has created a one of a kind "Entertainment Experience" by working his unique,dynamic, quick witted and improvisational magic on thousands of delighted fans across America. From 2002 to 2006, he traveled America performing everywhere from mom and pop clubs to major corporate shows. At 22 Jaysin moved to Las Vegas where he studied with circus performers and variety acts. When he wasn't learning how to handle fire or swallow razor blades, Jaysin studied with his friend and teacher, Guinness Book Of Records Holder and Master Magician Jeff McBride. Mr McBride is the "Magician of the Year" by the Magic Castle's Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood and "considered to be the most influential magician of our age" by many.

With his newly developed skills in showmanship and theatrical entertainment ~ including fire breathing, dancing, stunts, comedy and more -- he began performing at Caesar's Palace, MGM Grand, Excalibur,Westward Ho, Mandalay Bay and the House of Blues Foundation Room. He has performed over 150 shows a year. Today Jaysin engages audiences with well spoken and powerful magic performances while conducting regular seminars centered on problem solving. Jaysin's Power and Achievement seminar is based on techniques developed by "Performance Masters" in the entertainment industry. He is involved in designing and teaching programs that educate and motivate. Jaysin has amazed crowds at various schools and performing arts centers nationally. Recently he performed for the judges for NBC's "America's Got Talent". Jaysin has done work with the NJ Association for Gifted Children.
