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