Strolling entertainment offers the audience a unique opportunity to experience magic up close and personal. No trap doors, no special staging or lighting, just you and the performer.
Jim Chester is uniquely qualified for strolling work. He has won numerous awards for excellence as a close-up magician, plus his personality and years as a stand-up comic combine for a very entertaining experience.
Strolling magic is perfect for business events and hospitality suites, fairs and festivals, shopping malls, and even private parties where you don’t want the entire crowd to stop and focus on one thing.
Jim Chester’s stand-up shows offers almost the same intimacy found in his strolling show, only it is not mobile. Performed from a stage, the head table, or just the front of a room, Jim performs his sleight-of-hand and comedy utilizing people from the audience to assist in many of the routines.
The primary difference is that the entire group is involved. The dynamics of this type of show are wonderful, especially when many of the people in the audience know each other. Everyone in the group is focused on the show and the energy is amazing. Jim brings years of experience in comedy clubs into play and you just never know what might happen.
This type of show typically is what you want for banquets, schools, churches and other events where the audience has a place to gather as a group. In some cases, such as shopping malls, company picnics, some convention settings and adult parties, you might consider a combination of strolling and stand-up. The strolling not only allows the show to be spread around, Jim also uses this time to promote the upcoming stand-up show, ensuring better crowds.
A unique application of the stand-up show is the “Master of Ceremonies”. For more information on this, see below.
