He really gets people involved, making them stars! Whether you have a corporate dinner, meeting, convention, fair, festival, or party, Jerry will make your next event unforgettable.
Customized to fit your event, Jerry positively embraces an audience with anything-can-happen clean comedy. His show is fun, well-planned, highly visual, and tightly routined.
Plus, all the details of Jerry’s show are taken care of, including sound and lights, letting you relax and take-in the “wows” and “wonderfuls” you will hear from people. His comedy is absolutely clean and appropriate for any audience mix and size. From close-up miracles to stage illusions, Jerry delivers excellent entertainment, and he deeply cares about getting it right when the spotlight is on.
Jerry started performing at a young age in Duluth, Minnesota. He designed, built and produced his first large-scale illusion show at 16 and has been entertaining audiences all over America ever since.
If you ask him, he would say that he’s doing what he was meant to do, both practically and creatively, from the beginning: bringing out the best in people – whether that is his wife and three children, or his family and friends, or an audience of 500! “My show is fast and fun, but it’s only purposeful and entertaining to the degree that it connects with people in a real way and makes a lasting memory,” he says.
Inspired by the energy of Broadway in the early 1980’s, Jerry honed his performance skills and interactive style on the east coast and turned full-time as a comedian/magician in 1989. His study of theatrical stage movement, commedia dell’arte, improvisation and acting at Hofstra University in New York, combined with a B.A. in English and Communications from Ursinus College, a prestigious liberal arts school in Philadelphia, establishes Jerry as an actor, director and teacher.
After college, and before hitting the road professionally, he was fortunate enough to get a job as a high school English and Drama teacher where he could create lessons, almost like constructing routines, as well as direct numerous plays throughout the year. Jerry acknowledges the fine training the classroom was for him, “I believe all good teachers are good entertainers, being dedicated and passionate communicators on multiple levels.” To keep fresh and current, he continues to teach comprehensive magic, public speaking and theater workshops.
In addition to performing in his one-man show, Jerry writes and does graphic design, and video production. He is working on a new project that teaches a methodology of incorporating visual media in presentations and group communication.
