Schools/Public Shows

Looking for some family-friendly entertainment for a large group? Make it MAGIC!! ‘The Amazing Mr. J’s Magic Show’ guarantees a fun-filled, family friendly, audience interactive performance featuring: a LIVE magic bunny rabbit, AND a LIVE magic dove (they’re tame and trained; the kids always love them), your guests of all ages as the star magic volunteers (should they wish), full audience involvement, and lively, colourful magic for everyone! The show runs an hour.

The Amazing Mr. J’s Magic Show is perfect for schools, malls, exhibitions, weddings, festivals, day cares, libraries, grand openings, parades, Christmas parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvah events, and many more! Having performed over 3500+ shows nationwide since 1999, The Amazing Mr. J can create personally customized shows for YOU!

Since you will have a wide age range of kids in attendance, as well as grown-ups, the magic show will be customized to keep everyone entertained simultaneously! There will be some extra balloon animal and balloon hat prizes provided for some of your guests as well!

Another easy feature: The Amazing Mr. J does all the set up for you!

A magic table, a sound system, a large magic curtain backdrop, and all the special props are provided for you. Plus, you can have the show indoors or outdoors, in any location or situation. Just pick where you want the show, and voila! EASY! How relaxed will you feel when you can invite an UNLIMITED number of guests, leave them all to me, and then sit back and enjoy the show yourself?

If you are a school or library looking for a show with an educational message for your students, here’s an idea:

‘The Magic of Reading’ is an award-winning educational show for schools and libraries!

‘The Magic of Reading’ is a high-energy, interactive, feel-good magic show with an important, repeated educational message: “Reading is Magic!” and “Readers are Leaders!”. All the magic in the show is custom-themed around the importance of reading, in various aspects of life.

You can use this show to promote literacy month at your school or library, a book fair, author visit, or even special events, like the birthday of Dr. Seuss! (March 2nd)

With the popularity of ‘Harry Potter’, magic and literacy already share a natural marriage in students’ minds. You can easily use ‘The Magic of Reading’ to promote literacy and a magical sharing experience at your school or library.

Each Show Features:

  • FREE school appropriate comic books courtesy of Strange Adventures, Halifax. (Naturally, when one of your students *wins* a free comic book prize in front of all their friends, it makes the reading material extra special, so girls and boys love to read them even more!)
  • An hour of high-energy magic, fun, interactive audience participation, and the positive promotion of literacy.
  • Helpful literacy information for your schools and teachers, plus reading tips for students to take home to their parents.
  • Adaptable to classrooms, libraries, and school gyms for any size audience, or age group, that you need.
  • Extra bonus magic prizes for everyone.

Feel free to call or e-mail anytime for a free quote, and to check remaining availability!

Can you personally remember the joy you felt, when you had your picture featured on a special wall, or say, printed in the newspaper? Felt overjoyed to hear that the little girl who graces the back cover of the new 'Amazing Mr. J Comic Book' discovered her star outing by surprise, when her friend randomly showed her a copy! (After receiving permission to use the photo after a Magic Birthday Show for her last December, I had planned to tell the family she was now featured in the new Mr. J Grandway Comic- though before I could, the youngster discovered it by this happy surprise!) THOUSANDS of these comics have now made their way into the hands of kids and adults throughout Atlantic Canada, so I hope she feels like the star she is! Here's the wonderful e-mail I received from her Mom: "Hi Mr. J! I just wanted to let you know that Sammy got a copy of your comic book from a friend who was at the McDonalds in Tantallon this week. She was so excited, and proud, to see herself on the back cover with you. She took it to school today for Show and Tell.
It reminded us how awesome her birthday was and how special you made her feel on her special day :) Take Care. Brittany Pottie" :)

Are you a fan of JOHN CLEESE? You'll be happy to know the Fawlty Towers funnyman showed great warmth and humour upon meeting him in person, following his comedy performance (hilariously entitled: "Why There is No Hope"). For two hours, the near-80 year old Monty Python legend entertainingly explained why! Then, after his sharp and witty outlook on current world affairs, I asked him backstage if he felt there was "any hope of there ever being hope!" He said YES, in such that the best way to enjoy life is through the famous 'Serenity Prayer' (where you simply use your strength to change the things you can, and not worry about the things you can't!). A very wise and funny show, from possibly the FUNNIEST PERSON IN THE WORLD! Proving this point, upon seeing my stuffed 'monster bunny' (from the 'Life of Brian' movie, with this replica version used as a comedy prop in my personal Magic Shows for 20 years), John Cleese instantly took it and played up that the bunny was attacking him! I couldn't even get the ravenous rabbit away from him, as he continued to jostle with it! Priceless. He also loved the 'Dead Parrot' balloon gift, from the famous Python sketch. Will always remember his words: "Once you start thinking, 'Oh, I'm a very serious and important person,' I think you basically die inside.The secret to feeling good is being able to LAUGH at YOURSELF." Thank you, Mr. Cleese, for helping us all to "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life!" That's TRUE MAGIC!! :) ... See MoreSee Less
