This past May, my family and I wanted to take Grandma somewhere special for her birthday so we decided on the Showboat Branson Belle. The show was good all around but the best performance of the night was Mr. Christopher James. He was so funny, had everyone laughing at our table. We will definitely keep an eye out for future venues.
Funny hyper magic boy wows and befuddles audiences with razor sharp wit excellent timing and great magic
...I've laughed my a*s off..... ;----}
Christopher James is by far one of my favorite people to see when in Branson. His energy, quick wit, and talent to bring audiences into his show are just a few of the things I enjoy when he takes the stage. If you haven't seen him perform, then buy tickets now and go!!!
Great show! Christopher was very entertaining. His show has a great flow and always keeps you engaged. He is funny and talented, and is a great guy too. The show was built to be entertaining for all ages, which is a difficult task indeed. Bravo!
I loved every minute of Christopher James performance! He always kept the audience engaged, his tricks were very intriguing, and his humor was hilarious. I would highly recommend going to see him. You will definitely be glad you did!!!
Took my parents to the Branson Show Boat last August. We were told there was a magician's act, but we NEVER were told this guy was sooo funny and one of the BEST performer we ever saw. This guy is it! Branson and the Show Boat are privileged to have him preforming for us.
My family had so much fun watching the show! My 7 year old daughter has always been fascinated by magic and she was amazed by the show!!
Very funny, great stage presence, very good show all around.
Me and my husband went on a cruise and saw Christopher's show which was amazing. He made us laugh all the way to the end. I would recommend his show anytime.
I have had the privilege of seeing Christopher's show more than once and I am always very entertained!
I travelled from England with a group of six to Branson, and the highlight of our trip was seeing Christoper James on the Belle. We had a great time and found Christopher to be very funny and enjoyed his interaction with the audience. He is a splendid magician and thoroughly entertaining.
I have watched Christopher perform for the last 8 years. He is always working hard at perfecting his performances. He is witty, extremely funny, engages his audience, entertaining, and I really enjoy that he changes up his act with new and different tricks each year. He is the best MC the Showboat has had.
I have been going to Branson for several years, and I have never seen anything like the Act I saw on the Show Boat Branson Belle. Chris is such a talented entertainer that will please any audience. I always make sure that he is on my list when I go to Branson.
Christopher is a great magician, my family and I went on the show boat and enjoyed it greatly because of the comedy Christopher brought to the boat. He called for volunteers and did some illusions that impressed even my dad (and that's pretty difficult to do).
My family and I saw Chris in Branson on the showboat and it was by far the family favorite of the trip. He was very entertaining and funny. He used a variety of tricks rather than the typical "magic show set list." I would see him again in a heartbeat if I had the chance!!
I have had the privilege of seeing Christopher's show more than once and I am always very entertained! My children love his show and keep asking to go back again to see him.
All magic shows are mental challenges for the curious. But, Mr. James show is simultaneously entertaining and intellectually stimulating; putting things out there for you to think about ... to confront how easily our senses can betray us. I found Christopher James to be a funnier version of James "The Amazing" Randi.
Cannot Say Enough About The Show! Very Funny And Outstanding Magic!
Very funny, almost had me rolling in the isles. Wasn't expecting to enjoy but really paved me wrong. Loved every minute of the show
I enjoyed the show with my 3 kids and dad, so great for all ages! Very intriguing and funny show! Knows how to captivate and keep the audience entertained!
We saw him in Branson MO. The show was outstanding. Kept our attention the whole night. Bought his book and dvd. Money well spent. If you have a chance to see him make sure you go. Well worth it.
We really enjoyed the show. Very professional and entertaining. Lots of audience participation.
We saw Christopher James while we were in Branson and had a great time. Very humorous and clean show that was fun for all ages!
Best comedy shows in Branson Missouri. This is a clean, family friendly show. Christopher James does a great job interacting with the audience.
My entire prom was headlined by Christopher James. The man is hysterical. Not only is he funny, but he's a clean comedian. Personally, I think the highlight of the show was him interacting with the crowd. In short, amazing show.
Thanks to Christopher we have an excuse to keep returning to Branson every year. I rate his show a 5 Star presentation. My wife and I love him as an emcee and we loved him as the headline on The Branson Belle Showboat. If you want some belly laughs and slight of hand magic you can't go wrong with Funny Hyper Magic Boy.
There was never a dull moment in his show and was very clean and entertaining .
My family had the pleasure of seeing a performance on the Bransonn Belle. Very hilarious and impressive. Christopher is a very sharp comedian/magician that can bring a smile and a laugh to anyone. His tricks are awesome and his comedy is gold. We recommend him to the fullest.
I've seen plenty of shows and comedians that were great, but few have actually made me stop and think and appreciate such witty entertainment! Christopher James made me do that! Because of his very clever humor and awe inspiring magic gave me one of the most entertaining evenings I have ever experienced. I can not wait to see him again and be surprised from start to finish and yes even on the way home. Genius
My wife and I had the opportunity to see Christopher James on the Emerald Princess Cruise ship. Wow what an entertainer. We thoroughly enjoyed his show. The initial short "tease" show was wonderful. The follow-up full show in the smaller venue was great! The place was packed...everyone was having a good time viewing the show. It was a standing room only full house. If you get the opportunity, don't miss Mr. James' show.
We saw Christopher perform on the Crown Princess. While some magic acts are rather cheesy, Christopher was amazing and very enjoyable. He has the correct blend of magic and humor that results in a very entertaining show. He is never crude or vulgar, just a lot of fun to watch.
My family and I attended the show on the Branson Bell several time with Christopher James as the MC; he is very welcoming, quick witted, his magic is excellent (doing magic myself) and he makes the whole show enjoyable. My family highly recommends Christopher James!

My husband and I spent a week in Branson over Christmas and New Years 2014.. We saw Christopher on the Branson Belle. What an incredible show we were very fortunate to see. Christopher is not only very handsome, he is very talented at what he does. An incredibly talented performer with quick wit and perfect timing.. The magic tricks were mind boggling and very funny. Christopher was able to let us forget our troubles and for a few hours enjoy a great show.. I highly recommend anyone who has the opportunity to go see him in action.. Thanks Christopher for the fun... Hope to see you again..

I took my nieces on the Branson Belle during their stay in Branson. We all had such a great time. Chris is funny and pretty amazing!
We saw Christopher James on the Showboat Branson Belle. What a performer! He was a great emcee, tying all the acts together with ease. His punny jokes kept us laughing. A terrific magician, too. His Quick Change was the best I've ever seen!
HYMN Chris James was a smooth but hilarious M.C. as well as stupendous magian during our riverboat dinner and show. With side splitting comments intertwined with genuine respect for the other act that he introduces, Hyper Funny Magic Boy is one multifaceted illusionist that you will enjoy and remember.
Seeing Christopher Jones' show was one of the highlights of my trip to Branson, Mo. I've seen comedians and I've seen magicians. Christopher manages to combine both in a show that will leave you happy, smiling and wondering how he did all that magic. He gets the audience to interact with his act which makes for even more fun.
We seen Christopher on the showboat. He was very funny and also a great magician. Really made the whole show. Thanks for a good time.
Our family of three had the privilege of seeing Christopher James perform on the Branson Belle last summer. His show is far from routine comedy, and impressed my husband who is much harder to make laugh. He is very original and how much he enjoys what he does shines through his performance. We recommend his performance as another must do while in Branson, along with Silver Dollar City. We hope to see him again this summer!
Christopher is an amazing host and emcee. His shows are full of energy, entertainment, and laughter. His shows also welcome all ages. He is definitely worth seeing time and again!
We saw 2 shows on the Crown Princess in Jan/Feb. Christopher was amazing! We will watch for him again for sure. Very entertaining and so funny. Great show for all ages. Great tricks, jokes and showmanship.
We saw Christopher's show on the Showboat Branson Belle & had an awesome time! Our daughter was picked to go onstage & she loved it :) Great tricks, very funny guy & all-around great show - no to be missed!
Christopher is great in all his shows. I've seen dozens of them and there is always something new, funny and entertaining in every show. His improv skills are top-notch and I still can't figure out how he does some of his tricks. The humor is perfect for all audiences from kids to a "mature" audience, the humor ranges from big and hilarious to subtle and sneaky and it's always entertaining!
We saw 2 shows on Crown Princess and they were hilarious. Good comedy and excellent magic tricks.
We also saw Christopher on the Branson Belle, and he is amazing! Great for all ages. Our 24 year old son was apprehensive about going, thinking it would be boring. He absolutely loved the show! He thought Christopher was the hit of the show. I would go back just to see him. Thank you Funny Man! You are GREAT!
We saw Christopher James this summer on the Branson Belle. He was absolutely hilarious. He had good clean humor suited people of any age. Our 10 year old granddaughter loved him also. You never knew what he was going to do next. Would love to see him again!

Branson's Variety Performer of the Year, Eastern U.S. Magician of the Year, Most Original Act of the Year, one of the top comedy acts for major cruise lines around the world, and daily stage performer at The Showboat Branson Belle in Branson Missouri. Christopher James is one of the top touring magicians specializing in clean comedy for corporate gatherings, special events, and stage shows in the United States.
There is a reason Christopher James has worked in so many diverse venues. Magic is boring, tedious, and so often mocked. Christopher is well aware of this. If you want a traditional magician there are plenty of them out there that simply went online and purchased their career. On the other hand, Christopher has taken years, and 400-500 performances a year, to build an act that is actually entertaining and at times uses some magic in ways you have never seen. This is clear from the beginning of the show. No big boxes, no birds, no flexible assistants. He IS a comedian trying to do whatever it takes to entertain. A typical show involves improvisation, situational comedy and a unique view of magic. Just as with most things in his life, this very rarely goes as planned, sometimes has dire results, and always entertains. You'll quickly learn that everyone and everything is fair game.
Christopher James is the headlining comedy-magic act and emcee on The Showboat Branson Belle in Branson, Mo. During the winter, he headlines for major cruise lines, performing on hundreds of voyages. In Branson, he must entertain the wide range of audiences during two shows a day six days a week. At sea, Christopher performs his 50 minutes stage act, 25 minute welcome act, late night comedy and 30 minute standup improv show. From Branson to late night drunk cruise audiences, he has such a wide range of material and appeal that everyone leaves entertained. Christopher's show is unique in it's improvisational style and use of audience members. His versatility and ability to get the audience involved in the show creates a unique experience daily. In fact the audience IS the show. Christopher has been asked to emcee events simply for his ability to work off the audience and turn almost any situation into an improvised comedy performance.
Now the boring award stuff. The Magicians Alliance of Eastern States, named Christopher as Comedy Stage act of the Year, Magic Act of the Year, and first the first time in their 60 year history, awarded him the Entertainment Award of Excellence. Other awards include the top Eastern States comedy act of the year, magic act of the year, best stage act, and most original show. He was selected from thousands of applicants to be the U.S. representative at the 2005 Earth Festival in Oman. Corporate clients have relied upon Christopher and his unique brand of showmanship not only to entertain their employees and clients, but also to motivate them. Campus Activities Magazine nominated Christopher's act as one of the top five touring club and campus acts in the United States. Recently, he has been named the emcee of the year in Branson. He has also appeared on CBS and NBC and could go on and on with lots of boring things. No one actually cares about this stuff and it just starts to sound like bragging, so we are going to stop. Think about it, if you aren't impressed by this point with all the awards and 500, you heard me, 500 shows a year, what else can we say? Seriously, that's all...
Take a few minutes to watch some online videos and browse the facebook fan page. Contact Christopher with any other questions or for more information.
