Jersey Jim will be performing at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood on Saturday and Sunday, July 19 and 20, 2014.
Jim will be bringing his special blend of comedy and magic to the Parlor of Prestidigitation which is one of the three main performing stages at the Magic Castle.
Jim will be presenting family shows which are open to children as well as adults. Jim will be presenting three shows each day at 11:30 AM, 1:00 PM, and 2:15 PM. After watching Jim shows, you may also watch the Palace and Close-up room shows as well. The shows are timed so you move from one to the other. Many people come back to enjoy Jim’s show again later in the day.
The Magic Castle is considered the most prestigious venue for magicians to perform. Magicians come from all around the world to perform there. The Magic Castle is a private club and is open to the public by invitation only. You have to be invited by a Magic Castle member or by a Magic Castle performer (like Jersey Jim!). In the evenings, there is a strict dress code. Many women love the excuse to dress to the nines when coming to the Magic Castle.
The Magic castle is an amazing place to visit and experience besides watching world-class magicians. Be sure to stop by and visit Irma the ghost who will play anything you request on her piano.
The Magic Castle also houses one of the world’s greatest collection of books and media on the art of magic. Jersey Jim enjoys studying in the magic castle’s library which is only open to fellow magicians. Jim says he has discovered some of the deepest, forgotten secrets of magic in the Castle’s library, including some little known methods by Houdini himself!
Jim says that performing the Brunch shows at the Magic Castle are particularly challenging because you must play to what is called an “unlevel headed crowd.” This means an audience of all ages, from children to adults and seniors. Some of the Brunch shows are filled with children and some (particularly the later ones) don’t have any children at all. To handle this, Jersey Jim has crafted a show that can appeal to all ages. The material is very strong adult-style magic, and Jim adjusts the presentation of the routines based upon the ages of his current audience.
When you first enter the Magic Castle, you are greeted by the Hostess. She will check to make sure your name is on the list to gain access to this exclusive club.
After you are checked in, the fun begins right away. You can only gain access to the Magic Castle through the secret door! You must speak the secret pass word to the Owl with the glowing red eyes who sits on the book shelves. Only then will the secret door open and you can enter the world of fun and amazement at the Magic Castle, where Jersey Jim performs.
