As one of the most requested comedy acts in Southern California, the Comedy Magic & Juggling Variety Show presented by Abbit The Average is a clean, high-energy, something-for-everyone performance with audience participation. Highlights include slow-motion juggling and an illusion that makes his head grow right before your eyes.
When not on stage, Abbit The Average performs as a Mobile Mirth & Mischief Maker, a one-of-a-kind strolling performer who combines hilarious physical and prop comedy with magic, juggling and non-stop shenanigans. It's unscripted, interactive and ideal for just about any event you can think of.
Abbit was great. He engaged everyone. His humor was excellent . The juggling and magic was perfect. He received rave reviews from all at my event.
"Abbit the Average" is a clever misnomer for a great entertainer! He was perfection at the finest! Ours was a tough crowd – a corporate event for a Fortune 50 company that included families. Our ages ranged from babes in arms to the older, more distinguished members. All had a great time and left the event (ok, so we had to push them out!) with smiles on their faces and chuckles in their hearts. Jeff was able to aptly handle the age range seamlessly – he was engaging, entertaining, enthusiastic, enthralling, energetic, eager, exuberant, engrossing, enchanting and ebullient! I would book him again in a heartbeat!
Thanks for the memories, Jeff!
Abbit was a HIT - the kids loved him and actually… so did the adults!! I was a little nervous ordering s magician site unseen and with no personal recommendation, but PLEASE TAKE MY RECOMMENDATION!!! He was so awesome and thought of everything, made the birthday girl feel special and included all the kids in the fun. Many parents and kids asked me for his contract info after!! Loved him and I wll use him again FOR SURE for the future parties!
While comedy and juggling was in the routine, I had anticipated more illusions within the hour that Abbit the Average performed for us. Overall the crowd was pleased, but as the contractor, I was left a little disappointed.
Response from Abbit The Average:
Wow, Dennis. I am absolutely shocked by your review!
I’m so sorry your expectations weren’t met, and I mean that sincerely.
I take pride in exceeding my clients’ expectations. As you know, I did the table-to-table close-up magic at no extra charge plus I even added personal touches to the show, including making a couple of custom props. And I never complained about the show starting late due to other agenda items running long.
Perhaps what you really wanted was an illusionist, rather than a comedy magician.
Every performance I do is unique and fresh based on audience reactions, interaction with volunteers, ad-libs, etc. Because of how much time those things can take, I can never predict how many magic routines you’ll see in any given show.
Like you said, the spectators enjoyed my act. As promised, the show was packed with audience participation and non-stop laughs….and everyone was entertained. And that’s what really counts.
He arrived as Austin Powers and delivered a hilarious one hour show for my husband’s 60th birthday. Everyone had a blast with his humor and with the audience participation. I would highly recommend him for your next party!
Abbit the Average was amazing at our elementary school event! He was the perfect "Roaming Mime". Everyone loved him. He was very easy to work with and showed up on time. Can't wait to hire him again for another event!
Abbit the Average was the perfect choice for my holiday party. He came dressed in a head to toe Jester outfit which fit in perfectly with the party’s Knights and Dame’s theme. Between his strolling comedy magic and his comedy magic show, he was a hit among my party-goers. I would most certainly recommend Abbit for any event due to his versatility and ability to adapt to themes and would hire him again. Abbit the Average is hilarious and he will not disappoint!
Abbit the Average was on time and did amazing job. Kids and their parents were laughing all the time. Highly recommend him for your party.
Jeff was on time, set up quickly and was very professional to work with. Our PTA event guests were very entertained during the show.
I know he has the word "Average" in his name, but there is nothing "Average" about his show. We had wanted a variety type act which Abbit did for us. Our guests were entertained, and even one of our clients who loves to be a part of the show told me on his way out how entertained he was and how he couldn't stop smiling and laughing throughout the show. We need acts like this a couple of times throughout the year, and would use him again. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone. Thank you Abbit. Your show is anything but "Average".
Great show for our family event.
Hired him for prom and the youth loved it. He is very organized and easy to work with.
We had Abbit for our volunteer happy hour event, and every single person was engaged, laughing and having a great time! We definitely needed this added happiness for our week. Thanks so much for a great event!
He is awesome, very accommodating and very customer service oriented.
Abbit the Average is anything but average! We booked him last minute for our Annual Fundraising Gala. We were looking for a roaming Mime to provide entertainment, and, boy oh boy, did Abbit fit the Bill!
He incredibly easy to work with from an event planner's standpoint. Understanding all of the last minute things that go into making a successful Gala happen, he sent me an simple, straight to the point email with 6 easy questions to answer. After that, he just promptly showed up the evening of the event and got to work right away!
Our guests fell in love with him quickly! His act is creative, silly and totally unique. He played the venue and crowd perfectly. Several of our guests have already asked about him for their future parties!
Thank you, Abbit for making our event memorable! And thank you for making it so easy!
Abbit the Average was great. We contacted Gigsalad last minute and Abbit was incredibly accommodating for probably an atypical gathering. He was on time, professional, funny, and fun. Thank you Abbit for helping us end 2016 with laughter! Greatest gift!
We had "Abbit the Average" come to our French themed birthday party for our six year old girl and he was anything but average! He kept the whole crowd entertained for over an hour, with a suitcase full of fun bits and tricks. He was able to improvise hilarity on the spot and had a child-like way about him that was really fun. We're lucky to live in an area where you can get a remarkable entertainer at a price that works for a kids birthday party. Highly recommend!!!
Abbit the Average is anything but average as he provides exceptionally hilarious entertainment. Hired to be a strolling magician/comic he amused and entertained for hours on end (to a usually stolid audience). We were grateful for his detailed communication prior to our event and prompt arrival. Would recommend to all and would hire again.
Abbit was Great, not Average. A wonderfully entertaining act during our 3 hour corporate/family event which had 50 kids and 50 adults. Innovative, funny, spontaneous and classy. Highly recommend.
Jeff showed up on time even though we are very hard to find, even with Mapquest. He was professional and adaptable. Our mother and sons loved the show. We received many compliments at the end of the night. I will definitely use him again.
Every year we hire entertainment for our Scout event. But this year took the cake. Abbitt the Average is anything but. Adults are just as entertained if not more then the boys. If you don't want to be disappointed, Abbitt the Average is the man for the job!!!
Abbit the Average did a great show for our PTA Mother and Son event. The boys really enjoyed the show. He was easy and flexible even though our event had an unexpected delay. I would use him again for another performance at our school.
Abbit performed at my company holiday party and he was great! Part of what made his act so great was that he doesn't take himself too seriously - he makes you feel comfortable to laugh with him, not at him. He joins the party and becomes the life of it, and did a great job of getting everyone laughing and enjoying themselves. I would definitely recommend him for any kind of event (okay, almost any kind. Maybe not a bachelorette party - the bride-to-be might get the wrong idea and it could get awkward real fast...).
We had our annual Christmas party last night. It was a French themed "Christmas in Paris". We hired Jeff Abbitt as our mime. Unfortunately for the mime, he was "murdered" at our party by one of our guests. This means he had to lie on the floor for more than 45 minutes as Inspector Clouseau interrogated our guests in an attempt to find out who had murdered him. So, my husband and I have to say that we not only enjoyed Mr. Abbitt's performance with our guests in the early evening as he entertained our guests with games, antics, tricks and lots of laughs, he also endured being the victim of a crime. He was a good sport and willing to do what was needed in order to play out the murder mystery. Our guests truly enjoyed the party, in part because of our mime's wonderful performance. Thank you, Jeff, for your whimsy and fun. It was an unforgettable event.
Abbit the Average was a great addition to our annual Halloween Party. He is a consummate professional and gifted entertainer. We all enjoyed his presence, he was the hit of the party!
I highly recommend him for your event!
Abbit worked our Blue and Gold Banquet for our cub scouts. We had about 250 people with a good mix of children and adults. Abbit was perfect for all ages. He did roaming magic while everyone mingled and ate and then did a stage show which left us all in stitches! I had so many people asking me for his contact info and how I found him after the event.
He was on time, very professional, setup was great and very personable. I would definitely recommend Abbit for any event, he is much more than Average!
Our Rotary Club hired Jeff for 5 performances for 1,000 children in 2 Santa Ana schools, right before Christmas. The adults laughed as hard as the kids and of course - gasped and 'awe'd' at the magic. Jeff was just fantastic with the children - played along with them, included them in the show both on-stage and off-stage - and his closing number had us all cheering! We are keeping our fingers crossed that Jeff's available again next year!
We had so much of fun on Hermione's 3rd birthday!!! Thank you so much for your talent magic for the kids!!! They all love you Jeff!!!
Had the pleasure of Jeff doing his things aboard the Adventure Hornblower cruise event in August for the Destroyer USS ORLECK DD 886 Association Reunion Group. He is really talented and was the right formula for a leisurely cruise to 32nd Street Naval Base to view the end of the Navy day sights and sounds. During dinner Jeff professionally plied his way from table to table bringing fun and special recognition to the folks. Then he would have them pose for a picture and at the last second make a hilarious face that will make the photo a treasure from their special gathering. Jeff is also a gentleman. A fine man! He "Jeff the GR8" in our book!
Jeff Abbit was totally fun and personalized our evening with the one being celebrated. His gig was always moving into the next clever, fun magic, tricks, juggling and banter. I would recommend him and rate him a 10 on a 1-10 scale.
I hired Abbit The Average for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. I have received positive reviews from the kids - he was funny and original. Jeff was easy to work with, professional at all times, and was very easy-going and just went with the flow of the day. I will definitely hire him again!
We hired Jeff on short notice for a large school event. He completely met our needs and worked with our flucuating timing adjustments and was very professional. More important, our whole group loved him and the kids talked about him well after he left. Abbit the Average was Awesome!
Jeff was great @ my 5 yr old's birthday party. He had the children laughing & in awe. Even the parents enjoyed the show.
I recently coordinated a Promotion party for my preschoolers with a carnival for the rest of the school. I needed an entertainer for a big finale. Abbit the Average more than fit the bill. The children loved him. He made them part of his performance and they were thoroughly engaged. I highly recommend him.
Abbit, did a great job engaging and entertaining our seniors. There was a crowd of 12 with 1055 years between them, you can figure they have seen it all; but Abbit was able to pull the rabbit out of the hat. It was a funny and delightful show and everyone enjoyed the entertainment.
Hired Jeff for my wife's birthday party. Only 10 people showed up, so he had to captivate a crowd of adults and 2-year olds.
Jeff was very witty and able to roll with the punches. He entertained us and made the party very special. Thanks again Mr. Average!
It was for my daughter's 1st birthday and it was a great experience with a hint of average comedy that everyone can enjoy. Kids and adults of all ages at our event were absolutely entertained and amazed. I would recommend Abbit the Average to anyone who is looking for a great time on their special event.
we had a party of over 25 and he worked the crowd...we would hire him again.
Needed a walk around entertainer for a corporate event we did. I had heard about this guy from someone who saw him at a big opening for Irvine Center. HISTERICAL! He is a classic, kind of a vaudeville - magic entertainer! We planned this event for 6 months, and all the guests talked about was this guy, (the one thing which took no planning on our part). Funny and CLEAN! -- (We had a lot of clients families there). Would highly recommend him! the guy was about 1/2 of our projected budget for this.
