Giggles n Hugs hires Children’s Magician Jersey Jim for Private Birthday Party

This past Sunday, Giggles n Hugs (www.gigglesnhugs.com/) southern California’s premiere children’s and family restaurant and play area, hired Jersey Jim to perform for one of their exclusive private parties, celebrating a birthday party for a lucky little girl named Sophie.  The entire venue was devoted just to Sophie’s party and for such an important event, there was just one children’s magician Giggles n Hugs asked for:  Jersey Jim Comedy Magician.

For years, Jersey Jim performed at all three of the Giggles n Hugs locations as their resident magician.  “It was certainly a nice homecoming to return to Giggles n Hugs and see all the friendly staff and managers again,” Jim said.   And, of course, Jersey Jim was a big hit with the children and families.  Many parents said they had never seen children laugh so hard before.  One mother told Jim that he had a gift for entertaining not just the children but the adults as well.  “I was laughing as hard as the kids!” she said.

Jersey Jim does have a winning way with children; he is the most entertaining children’s magician you will ever see.  That is what makes Jersey Jim the most popular children’s magicians in California and why parents have Jim back time after time doing his special brand of magic for their children’s birthday parties.

But Jersey Jim also takes great pride in the fact that he entertains the adults as well as the children.  There is non-stop humor for the grown ups as well as the kids.  Everyone has a great time at the jersey Jim’s magic shows.

Jersey Jim Brings Frosty the Snowman to Los Angeles!

Jersey Jim will be bringing his “Frosty the Snowman” magic show to the Edendale Branch of the Los Angeles Library system on Monday, December 14 at 4:00 PM.  The show includes winter-themed magic and storytelling.  The presentation is non-religious so is suitable to everyone who loves to have a great time and see some awesome and funny magic.  The big climax of the show is an indoor snowstorm followed by the arrival of the Famous Snowman himself!

“The kids go nuts when Frosty finally appears,” Jim says.  “It’s like Disneyland for them.”

Besides his “Frosty the Snowman” magic show, Jersey Jim also offers others shows themed for the holidays.  Jim offers his Magic of Christmas show, which features his love bunny rabbit.  Jim also has a wonderful Hanukkah themed magic show, whose tricks demonstrate many key aspects of the Miracle of Lights.  The one thing all these holiday shows have in common is that kids of all ages love them.

Jersey Jim also offers his Big Boo Halloween magic show, which features Jim’s brand of comedy magic and lots of spooky goofy tricks, including Dracula’s Floating Skull!

Jersey Jim Does Street Magic This Sunday!

Come see me this Sunday, March 16, 2014, in Santa Monica at 18th street and Broadway. Jersey Jim will be doing comedy street magic!  http://www.thesms.org/purim-carnival/

Street magic was one of the secrets that makes Jersey Jim the acclaimed comedy magician he is.  That is because Jim gained thousands of hours of performing in front of live audiences in his early career by performing on the street.  Street performing is considered the most demanding test of a magician.  That is because if you are uninteresting for a few seconds people will simply walk away.  Jim gained vast experience with audiences of all types and ages and cultures which proved an invaluable asset as a performer.  He was also able to hone his routines, jokes, and magical sleight of hand through these performances on the street, working hour after hour in front of new audiences all the time.  Jim loves street performing so if you want to see how much fun it is, come to Santa Monica at 18th street and Broadway this Sunday.  The carnival is also sure to be a great time with food and fun rides for the whole family.  Comedy magic is so much fun and doing comedy magic in the street environment, where the audience gets immediately involved makes it even better.

Jersey Jim’s Holiday Magic Show

Come see Jersey Jim Comedy Magician tomorrow night at 6 pm for a great holiday magic show at the . Christmas Tree lighting and Santa Claus to follow!  You will see Snowflake the talking bunny rabbit magically appear.  We will also have a magic snowstorm to round out the holiday magic show.  (The kids just love the snow!)

Another School Fundraiser

Well, after providing my school magic show fundraiser to many many schools and having raised thousands and thousands of dollars for other schools while also providing a wonderful family fun evening of great entertainment, the roosters have come home to roost so to speak.

My son’s school is finally hosting my  Funtastic Magic Show Fundraiser!  Here is a picture of my son, Wesley, standing in front of one of the posters at school.

Even better, Wesley is going to be performing his special illusion that we talked about in another post.  We’ll let you know how it goes!

Schools typically raise between $2000 to $12,000 in a single night of family fun entertainment without much work or lead time.  This is not your typical magic show.  This is the same 90-minute production I bring to professional theaters throughout southern California.
