As seen on MSNBC and The Today Show, Jungle Jim is an artist and entertainer who creates an entire performance world with giant balloon sculptures and unbridled enthusiasm. He is known for his dedication to literacy by providing high-quality summer reading programming at public libraries.
Despite his commitment to literacy and education, he never sacrifices the irreverent improvisational humor his young audiences adore. Jungle Jim’s show is a combination of familiar performance mediums brought together in a new and exciting way. His style has been described as “George M. Cohan meets Jeff Koons.” His use of over 20 volunteers on stage at each performance is what keeps audiences clamoring for his show year after year.
Jim has been nominated by Nickelodeon for Family Entertainer of the Year, and counts the Boston Red Sox, the City of Boston and over 300 public libraries from Hawaii to Maine as regular clients. He is currently a developing his newest performance for the National CSLP Summer Reading theme of “Libraries Rock” entitled “80’s Rock the Library,” and will be debuting this performance in Charleston, SC in June.
