Mitchell After Dark: Magician Joseph Tran @ Red Barn
Sep 18 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

joseph tran: cool. funny. spontaneous.
Cool. I’ve never been one of the cool kids but somehow me doing my thing has landed me square in the middle of what’s currently popular. Sort of like an arrow hitting a bald eagle hitting the liberty bell… and I’m the liberty bell.

Anyway, I’m a real magician from Los Angeles, and yes, I really do magic for a living. You should see my place – hundreds of deck of cards. Finely pressed suits and showgirl costumes. Stray feathers… lots of feathers… from my flock of doves. And lots of rabbit poop. But no sequins in my closet and no dragons painted on my props. Keep it classy.

Magic gets a bad rep for being the cringy form of live entertainment. You’ve probably seen a lot of bad magic or, even worse, a really bad/creepy/weird magician. Everybody has. Magic is actually really hard to do right. Not just getting the physical stuff right, but also being the kind of person that people won’t run away from when they see you across the room waving a deck of cards.

Funny. You know what I said up above about being the kind of magician that doesn’t make people run away dialing 911? A lot of that has to do with being funny. That means I don’t come in with a ten year old script that I use on every audience. I talk to you. Get to know you a little. Get a feel for who you are. And then I’ll drop trou and you’ll be laughing at my chicken legs. Just kidding, I’ll say something witty. And then drop trou.
Spontaneous. I get bored in seconds and I know you do too. That’s why I’m constantly trying out new tricks and new jokes. Being on stage is great because I can interact with you – you’re not just watching some Netflix special. If the crowd’s right, I’ll strip to my skivvys and body surf it. Or pull a live bird out of my ‘you know where’. No matter what happens I promise you won’t leave the show wishing you’d been home binge-watching Shark Tank*.
*I might wish it, though. I freaking love Shark Tank.

A few words on fit.

 

"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.

 

If you are looking for a college that: 

 

  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities

 

 

 

…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
