Magician’s Live Bunny Rabbit

“Are you going to pull a rabbit out of your hat?!” How many times have magicians heard this question? Lots of times!

Rocky the Rabbit appears!

Making a live rabbit appear from the magician’s top hat is one of the most classic and expected tricks in magic. Pulling a rabbit out of an empty hat was first performed by Magician Louis Comte in 1814.

By the way, making a rabbit or anything else “appear” from nothing is known by magicians as a “Production.” We say the magician “produced” the rabbit. A “production” is one of the main magical effects we do along with a “vanish” (making something disappear) or a “restoration” (tearing or cutting something and putting it magically back together), and a “levitation” (making something or someone float in the air). Jersey Jim’s shows include all of these effects.

Now, getting back to live bunny rabbits. Not every magician has a live bunny rabbit as part of their shows these days. But making a live bunny rabbit appear is a sure crowd pleaser. Perhaps no other trick gets the gasps of wonder as seeing a sweet, soft, adorable bunny rabbit suddenly appear out of thin air. And of course, nothing makes kids happier than a chance to meet and pet Jersey Jim’s live bunny rabbit after the show.

Kids Love Rocky the Rabbit

Jersey Jim’s live bunny rabbit is named “Rocky the Rabbit.” Rocky appears to the strains of the theme music from the movie “Rocky.” Rocky the rabbit is the softest bunny you and your children will ever pet. “He’s softer than a cloud!” I have heard kids exclaim. And it’s true. Rocky is as soft as a mink. This is because his breed of rabbit–a Mini Rex–actually were originally bred to make coats out of sadly.

Magicians have used rabbits in their shows for hundreds of years because rabbits are the perfect assistants for a magic show. This is because of their traits and personalities. Rabbits like to hide in small, dark spaces. They are completely happy when they are hiding, so you can see why this makes them a good match for becoming magical assistants.

Jersey Jim’s magic bunny, Rocky the Rabbit, also has other traits that make him perfect for Jersey Jim’s comedy magic shows. Rocky is totally calm and he loves being petted by all the children. “Rocky knows he is the star of the show and he loves all the attention,” Jersey Jim says.

When he is not performing magic show, Rocky the Rabbit is Jersey Jim’s much loved pet. “He lives inside with my me and my son, who loves him.” Rocky loves to hop around and his favorite food is lettuce. (He doesn’t like carrots!)

FunTastic School Fundraiser Magic Show

Jersey Jim is bringing his FunTastic Family Magic Show Fundraising program to Mar Vista Elementary School on Friday, November 20, 2015.  There will be two shows at 5 pm and again at 7 pm.

What prompted such a large event? School officials claimed they were looking for “something different” for their fundraising efforts. “Unlike traditional fundraising methods, Jersey Jim’s program offered a fun alternative for our children and parents alike.”


“We don’t feel that we’re asking the student body, their parents, or the community for a donation,” one school official said. “We feel we’re giving them something of real value: a FUN evening of laughter and entertainment. It’s going to give everyone who attends an opportunity to enjoy themselves with their families as well as feel good about themselves, knowing that their proceeds will be going toward much-needed school funding. It’s a win-win for everyone.”


What can attendees expect? The FunTastic Family magic show is the same show that Jersey Jim performs at professional theaters. It features 90 minutes of unique entertainment complete with music, beautiful props, and Jim’s hilarious blend of comedy, audience participation, and grand illusion, including sawing art teacher Mr. Miceli in half with a power buzz saw! Jim is quick to reassure that all ages will be laughing at this comedy routine.

Another amazing moment includes causing an audience member to float in the air!   Jim will be selecting a child from the audience and will even pass a hoop around them to prove they are floating!

Parents often ask how long the kids stay up there. Jim always says, “Long enough for a dinner and movie.”

Jersey Jim appeared in the film, “Couples Retreat.” “It was an honor being picked by Vince Vaughn from all the other magicians in Los Angeles,” Jim said.

Every child who attends will also receive a free magic gift and be able to pet the magician’s appearing rabbit after the show.

Of his Family Comedy Magic Show,” Jim says, “I have the best seat in the house because I get to see all of the kids’ faces as they smile in amazement and laugh hysterically. It’s designed with the entire family in mind and the parents always have as much fun, if not more, than their children!”

Tickets for the event are $10 & $8 in advance and $12 & $10 at the door. Tickets will be available the evening of the event as space allows. For more information,

How Much We Love Our Children

As a professional children’s entertainer I get to see to what extraordinary lengths mothers and fathers go to in order to make their children feel special about themselves by hosting wonderful birthday parties for their little ones.

Putting on any birthday party is a wonderful gift and a huge job for any parent to give to their child.  However, there are some parents that set the bar really high.  I recently entertained for a lucky little boy whose parents put together an amazing Harry Potter-themed birthday party.  They had changed their backyard into the dining hall at Hogwarts with a great deal of ingenuity and work all of which was fueled by their delight at knowing how much their son would enjoy it.

They had made floating candles out of battery powered candles which were glued onto toilet paper rolls, which were painted white.  They even used hot glue to make wax dripping down the sides of the candle and fishing line made the candles float!  The dad even got dry ice so that the cauldrons would boil and bubble.


Jersey Jim’s Easter Magic Show and his Live Bunny

Easter is a wonderful holiday.  Spring is just around the corner, nature is renewing itself, and, of course, the religious significance of the holiday is at the forefront.

Every child loves petting Jersey Jim’s sweet bunny rabbit, who’s name is Rocky the Rabbit.  Rocky is the softest bunny rabbit you will ever pet.  He feels like a mink coat.
