Jersey Jim is very proud of his home state. "The home of Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen... and Tony Soprano!"
When Jim first drove West, he had his mechanic check his oil, his tires, his transmission. "When he heard I was driving to Los Angeles, he checked my Karma."
Jim has been a magician since the age of 12, when he received his first magic kit. By 14, he was performing at birthday parties and challenging local police officers to handcuff him like his hero, Houdini. And, like Houdini, Jim always escaped.
In creating his Magic and Illusion shows, Jim draws on his experience as a graduate of the prestigious UCLA film school and as a working Hollywood screenwriter to create original, hilarious, character-driven routines that you will see from no other magician. Jim also designs and builds his own one-of-a-kind equipment.
Jim was cast in the Vince Vaughn film, "Couples Retreat." When Universal studios went looking for the best family magician in Los Angeles, they cast Jersey Jim! "It was an honor being picked by Vince Vaughn from all the other magicians in Los Angeles," Jim says.
