Most Amazing Birthday Party by Loving Parents

As a professional birthday magician, every weekend I see how much parents love their children as reflected by the huge effort they put into producing amazing birthday parties for their little ones.  These lucky children are being shown, not told, how much their parents love them.

If you want to know how you can put on the most amazing, over the top birthday parties with little cost for your child, read to the end to find Jersey Jim’s inexpensive secrets for sending your child’s birthday joy into orbit.


Hosting any birthday party is a big job but there are some parents who go above and beyond.   These parents aren’t only the wealthiest ones who might hire big halls or multiple entertainers.  Many of these parents are the ones who do most of the heavy lifting themselves in order to make their child’s dream party a reality.

One family went so far as to built a huge archway entrance to their child’s Micky Mouse-theme party!

There have been a number of amazing Harry Potter Parties where parents have recreated Hogwarts in their own backyards.

Recently, however, I performed at a birthday party that was the most elaborate I have ever seen. It had to be seen to be believed and it “took the cake” as the most incredible birthday party I have ever attended. The entire backyard was themed as a WIlly Wonka birthday for a very lucky little boy.

There was a giant Wonka Vision TV for taking pictures. Here I am with the birthday mom who is perfectly dressed as Willy Wonka herself.

There was even a real live Oompa Loompa there!

Most of the guests also got into the swing with amazing Willy Wonka outfits.

The backyard was filled with many set pieces from the Willy Wonka film, including the grandparent’s poster bed in the backyard, a giant nice-or-naughty chair, Wonka themed Pinata, and Billy’s Candy Shop, where guests got Golden Tickets along with their candy.

Most of the parents were inspired and came in Wonka costumes also.

After my magic show, I never wanted to leave! And to finish things off, the most amazing Willy Wonka hat birthday cake and goody bags.

How could these parents have all done this you ask? It certainly helped that mom was a professional art director from the movie industry! However, all parents are able to achieve the same special birthday parties for their children as well, and here is how:

Jersey Jim, a nationally-known children’s magician, has compiled 25, inexpensive, do-it-yourself ways to make your child’s birthday party the most special ever!

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!

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.
