Looking for some family-friendly entertainment for a large group?

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!

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.

Hey Magic Friends! What are your favourite childhood SOUNDS?? Jolly Christmas cheer? Fun with family? (Maybe even the merry madness of a Mr. J Magic Show?!) How about the VOICES from your favourite TV CARTOONS? Recently honoured to make Magic Balloons for Canadian legend PETER CULLEN, the original voice of OPTIMUS PRIME (!), Eeyore, Predator, and hundreds more, along with FRANK WELKER, the voice of Fred from Scooby-Doo, plus Scooby himself (!), along with Garfield, Hefty Smurf, Baby Kermit, Transformers' Megatron & Soundwave, Simpsons' Santa's Little Helper, Futurama's Nibbler, The Hulk, and even the memorably sepulchral villainous voice of DR. KLAW, from Inspector Gadget! Basically if you watched ANY cartoon show EVER over the last 50 years, from Gummi Bears to Gargoyles, from Smurfs to Simpsons, from Real Ghostbusters to Winnie-the-Pooh...you heard one of their THOUSANDS of cartoon creations! They even did some original recordings, in character, for yours truly, Mr. J! (!) Warm, very engaging to converse with, and hilarious in person, they actually got down on the floor, on their knees with me (three grown adults!) to play with my toys, and balloon gifts. Truly a Magical Experience in Toronto, to spend time with the talents behind the soundtrack to our shared childhood. Thought you'd be pleased to know the men who shaped all your personal cartoon memories...are magical class acts! :) ... See MoreSee Less

For young children, the wonder is in seeing new magic for the first time, (and even volunteering to perform themselves, as the star!) For yours truly (Mr. J), it's the joy of seeing them experience this excitement! Y'know, after nearly 4000 shows, every performance still feels entirely fresh, and brand new! Feeling Super-Mega-Excited to perform this weekend in New Brunswick, Cape Breton, and throughout mainland Nova Scotia. So, whatever YOUR personal plans, and despite the madness of modern media and random ridiculous roadblocks in your path, always remember the Magic and Mystery of Life! During these wacky way-out times, have to share one of my favourite quotes with you: “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed." -Albert Einstein (Remember: "It's YOUR life...Make it MAGIC!"- Mr. J) :) ...

Need a smile? Need a reminder of the GOODNESS, MAGIC, and generous LOVE in people? Quick story: This little 3-year old boy has a cancerous brain tumour, the treatments for which have hampered his immunity, preventing him from even the simple joy of going outside. At all. A sunny day? Seeing others playing? Sadly, little Quinn can only observe from inside, from his window, in this small New England community. So, people from far and wide randomly started showing up on his front lawn...to entertain him! Dynamic dance troupes! Merry musicians! Big-hearted police officers, blaring their sirens! (Imagine the excitement of seeing such a cavalcade of creativity as a little kid!!) Every day, the 'Mighty Quinn' (as he's become known) is made to feel loved, and that he belongs. His parents are overwhelmed with the thousands of acts of random kindness. (Wish Mr. J lived near Massachusetts, 'cause he'd definitely get a Magic Show too!) But wherever we all are, we can all make a difference. When seeing this story on TV, it deeply touched my heart, so just had to share with you. "The greatest thing we can do is to let people know they are loved, and capable of loving." -Mr. Rogers ... See MoreSee Less

Naturally, Mr. J LOVES to dance...and so does...JOHN TRAVOLTA!! You know, sometimes to find your groove, all it takes is a goofy balloon, a shared laugh, and some MAGIC. The Hollywood Superstar even enjoyed the Grandway Comics...it was 'Grandway Night Fever!' You'll be happy to know John Travolta is super nice and easy-going in person, and after a couple hearty handshakes, it was actually the Grease/Disco/Pulp Fiction Legend HIMSELF who INSISTED we do some dance poses! (Hilariously, this happened one day before his now-famous MTV award snafu with Taylor Swift, so who knows...maybe Mr. J's Magic Balloon distracted him!) Though it's all good; Dancing is MAGIC, and the dance goes on! "Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." :) #AmazingMisterJ #JohnTravolta #MTVAwards #Dancing #Magic #Magician #MagicOfReading #GrandwayComics ...
