Michael Dardant is an internationally award winning entertainer. His accolades as a comedian, magician, actor, and writer have led to global recognition and bookings at thousands of theaters, roles in feature films, spots on music videos and countless appearances on television. His witty wizardry and hilarious antics are flavored with an improvisational style that makes every act unique and unforgettable. Whether he’s headlining at a comedy club or emceeing a cabaret show, each performance is like a “talent gumbo”!

Born in Saint Nazaire, France, he fits right into the uncommon European culture of the French Quarter of New Orleans where he’s lived and performed for over 15 years. Michael grew up in New Iberia, Louisiana, the home of Tobasco, which matches the red hot, saucy spice he brings to his repertoire. His unique heritage and Southern charm is evident each time he takes the microphone which has created a captivated fan base of millions. The name Dardant is known not only for mind blowing sleight of hand, but also for the outrageous and hilarious characters he’s brought to the stage and screen. As the country bumpkin, “Paul” from Trailer Park Jesus, “Travis” the prison guard, in the Fleur de Tease Burlesque Show, or the “Silver Man” on NCIS, New Orleans, his original comedy is beloved by all and catches everyone by surprise. His newest (yet rehearsed since childhood) persona of “Cousin Cajun Mike” brings down the house with an accent all too natural, and a freshly released hour-long comedy DVD!

The “Cajun Conjuror” has recently taken on several challenging competitions in his field. He claimed dozens of elite titles in the world of magic, elevating him to a rank matched only by some of the most famous magicians in history. Michael was one of only 12 acts selected to represent the United States in the 2015 World Championships of Magic. In the same year, he was asked to lecture at the prestigious Magic Circle in London and was named an Associate Member of The Inner Circle with Silver Star, the highest honor a new member can receive!
