Comedy Magician Ben Young will perform for U.S. military troops and families stationed in Europe on a three-week tour beginning October 29, 2018. The show, Operation: Magic All-Stars, will take place on military bases in Italy, Portugal, Spain, Greece, Germany, and Belgium. The show features Young, as well as fellow magicians Jason Michaels and Jessica Jane.
“It is such an honor to work with Armed Forces Entertainment to bring a fun show for military families overseas! The troops do so much for our nation’s freedom, so I’m thrilled to be able to give back in my own little way. Jason and Jessica are long-time friends, so touring with them in Europe is just icing on the cake!”
Young is no stranger to hitting the road for the military, having performed at over 30 Air Force Bases nationwide in the past two years. This is, however, his first time working with Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE) to raise spirits and boost morale on bases overseas. The show will be jam-packed with magic, comedy, and audience interaction. In addition, all three performers will stick around after each show for a meet-and-greet with anyone and everyone from the audience.
Ben Young, who was hand-picked to appear on season three of Penn & Teller: Fool Us on CW Network, thrills audiences with his energetic and absolutely hysterical twist on the old-school magic show that has modern day audiences laughing in amazement. Originally from Knoxville, TN, Ben now lives in Las Vegas. Outside of performances for the military, he performs for corporate clients, resorts, and more.
