With a trunk full of props and a looping machine, Jester Jim takes the stage and starts his show. Young and old are glued to his every sound as he performs his amazing beatbox intro. Kids and parents alike will talk about the show for weeks after, and libraries can’t seem to get enough of Jim and his plungers.
Jim performs over 200 shows a year and was voted ‘best family entertainment’ by Entertainer America.
Everyone will love ‘The Jester Jim Show.’
