How much space do you need?
For our birthday party party performances, we are well adept at working in smaller spaces. Most of our birthday parties take place in living rooms, playrooms, and the like. We need a place for the children to sit, and a performance area measuring approximately 3 feet by 4 feet.
Should we have the children sit in chairs?
Unless it is in an auditorium, we prefer the children sit as a group on the floor or the ground. Jim will mark his stage with painter's tape so the children know exactly where to se
How much set up time do you require?
Jim needs 30 minutes of set up time for birthday parties. For all other programs, Jim will arrive 30 - 60 minutes ahead of time to set up.
What do you need for the day of the show?
Jim needs access to electricity and a parking space within 300 feet of the event location. Jim cannot guarantee the scheduled start time without a parking space close to the venue.
Do you perform outdoors?
As of January 2014, Jungle Jim does not perform at outdoor birthday parties. I have made this decision for a few reasons. When I perform at birthday parties, I want you to have the best experience possible. Being outdoors lends itself to a number of distractions for the children. I perform best in a controlled space, and I do a great job of keeping order with a group of children. I use balloons in all of my performances, and the wind makes it a bit challenging to keep them from flying away. Lastly, weather in New England is predictably unpredictable, and I want to make sure that we will have a successful party regardless of temperature and precipitation.
How many children can I invite to a birthday party?
We recommend 10 – 15 children for an optimal birthday party. We can certainly accommodate more children. Please let us know at the time of booking.
How long has Jungle Jim been performing?
Jungle Jim has been a full time children's entertainer in New England since 2004.
What sets you apart from your competition?
What separates Jim from other entertainers such as magicians is his original material specifically written for ages 3 - 11; his skill managing large and small audiences; and his unique combination of comedy, improv, magic and balloon artistry.
How far in advance should we book Jungle Jim’s?
We have limited availability depending on the time of the year. We recommend booking 2 - 3 months in advance.
