Michael OJ

The Original Magic Mike.

About Michael OJ

My name is Michael Oldziej, and I have been a magician for over ten years. During that time, I traveled worldwide, performing and perfecting my craft, from being a street magician in Ireland to entertaining at Mohegan Sun Casino. My unique chaotic approach blends powerful technical skill with witty comedy, where I will demonstrate an array of magic from all aspects of the craft! For YOUR event, I will tailor my vast knowledge of magic to add to any atmosphere, leaving lasting memories for years to come.

Event Types

Renaissance Faires

Michael started performing at Renaissance Faires and, thus, are very near and dear to his heart. At Faire, he specializes in his patron interactions bringing life to the fairgrounds while performing walk-around magic. Over the years, he cultivated four different shows to allow patrons the opportunity to see a variety of magic and other tricks regardless of which show they attend. He creates a fun atmosphere that both adults and kids will love. Usually, his show runs 30 minutes but can be extended to 45 minutes, depending on the need! 

Not only does he do traditional Renaissance Faires, but also Steampunk Festivals and themed shows. He will make it a point to make his style fit in with whichever event you run! 

As a college-educated Historian and History Teacher, Michael has created a “Period Magic Show,” teaching the history of medieval magic and performing tricks that were done during the era. Ask about this one if you are interested! 

His resume includes; Connecticut Renaissance Faire, New Hampshire Ren, Maine Ren, Sparta Ren, Capital District NY Ren, Wizardfest, and so much more!

College Shows

Be it entertaining the new first-year class, performing at an on-campus event, or adding magic to homecoming, Michael is ready and excited to bring magic to your next college event! From performing at colleges since his days in college, he has cracked the code to give students a much-needed break from their studies to relax and enjoy something unique that is guaranteed to leave them talking about it for years to come!


A wedding is one of the most important days in your life. If you want to add magic to it, Michael can help. He performs strong tableside magic to get your guests engaged and amazed. One of his tricks, called “The Gift,” is a special trick reserved only for couples, leading to a great souvenir.

Private Parties

Michael is available for your next celebration, party, graduation, birthday, or corporate show! He will work with you to design EXACTLY what you want to create memories for your guests that will leave them amazed, entertained, and just a bit happier. His work has ranged from Casinos, Corporate Events, Trade Shows, Birthday Parties, and much more. If you have an event coming up, reach out to see what he can add to it! He guarantees you will be talking about his show for years to come!

Anime & Comic Conventions

At heart, Michael is a huge geek. In his spare time, when not doing magic, he writes professionally for tabletop roleplaying games. So the only logical step was to design a show tailor-made for anime conventions! He performs with a Yu-Gi-Oh Deck using his sleight of hand to find Exodia! Tears up a BLACK LOTUS on Stage and then Restores it magically! Read the mind of an audience member’s favorite Pokémon and much more! His magic has enhanced the atmosphere and the love of the fandom conventions strive to create! 

Reach out to add magic to your next anime convention (well, not THAT Magic, as in The Gathering, but magic).
