Jeremy performs his interactive action-packed act for festivities of all kinds and for all ages!
Jeremy's entertainment, which can be tailored to fit any type of event, most often includes a zany 30-minute "Big Show" with juggling, unicycling (6-foot unicycle), giant transforming origami, magic, comedy, a juggling frog puppet and more.
The "Big Show" is followed by the "Post Big Show" entertainment which includes juggling and origami teaching or making balloon animals.
For company events and banquets, the Post Big Show entertainment means roving table to table doing interactive comedy and close-up tricks. In addition, roving can include unicycling around while juggling glowballs.
Jeremy was awesome! He kept a group of twenty kiddos ranging from two to eight AND adults entertained, enthralled and laughing. Immensely talented and funny, he can juggle, ride a unicycle, make all sorts of cool balloon animals... not to mention he has a whole basket full of his origami he uses in his act. Highly recommend Jeremy!
Jeremy organized his vast experience with entertaining to match our crowd of 11 year old boys. They were engaged and entertained by his talent and versatile repertoire.
We had Jeremy for our 8 year old son's party. They had a blast, they thought he was super funny and awesome. He entertained the kids for 90 minutes without stop, kids were running behind him and had an amazing time.
Fire show was pretty cool and he did the balloons as per our party theme and the kids loved it.
He went above and beyond. Never breaking character. He did everything he promised and more. We even booked him for an additional hour because the kids were having such a great time. When he arrived it was like he appeared out of no where and left down the street on his unicycle. It was so funny to the kids. He reads his audience very well.
He did an amazing juggling and unicycling show, He spend a lot of time doing origami with the kids, they loved it . He was very interactive, running with the kids to the back yard for a part of the show then to the front for some finishing in the back. He kept them busy and entertained the whole two hours, which is amazing in its self. He was also thoughtful and made sure every child, big or small had a balloon animals so no one felt left out.
He's worth every dollar! Book him today!!!
Jeremy did an outstanding job entertaining the kid and adults at our annual moms' club fall event. He was able to get (and keep!) the kids' attention. :) After his performance he worked the room, interacting with families, doing tricks, riding his unicycle. Our committee was was happy with him and would definitely hire again.
Jeremy was sensational!
His performance not only brought smiles and laughter not only to my 6 year old grandson and friends but the parents as well!
What to Expect
Jeremy will tailor his entertainment to your particular event, which means any combination of "Big Show" , strolling, teaching origami (or juggling), or making balloon animals.
The Big Show consists of comedy juggling, unicycling, origami, magic and often a fireshow finale (outdoors!)
Strolling is roving around the event usually on a unicycle juggling and entertaining the guests. It can range from ambient (no interaction) to interactive table-to-table 3-minute shows.
Teaching origami and jugging is fun for all ages
Jeremy's balloon creations are best for ages 6 and younger. The menu consists of about 30 different one-balloon animals which can be attached to hats or leashes. Other items include swords, shields, flowers, hearts and crazy hats.
Jeremy Shafer has been entertaining professionally in the Bay Area for over 15 years. His venues include schools, libraries, hospitals, fairs, festivals weddings, birthdays and corporate events. His clients include Motorola, Genentech, Microsoft, Oracle, Industrial Light and Magic, Bayer, Kaiser Permanente, Red Bull, Pixar, Intel, Toshiba and Dreyers Ice Cream.
He has designed hundreds of original origami models and written three books: "Origami to Astonish and Amuse," "Origami Ooh La La!" and "Origami Pop-ups." He has taught and performed at origami conventions in eight countries and he placed second on TV Champion, a survivor-esque Japanese TV show, competing against four Japanese origami masters.
Additional Booking Notes
When appropriate, Jeremy uses a 20-watt belt-pack amplifier, which is plenty loud for most audiences. For very large stage shows (200+ people) he can bring a wireless mic that can plug into your sound system.
Jeremy's show can fit into just about any performance space. For the Big Show, shade (at least for the audience) is appreciated, but not required. The Fire Show -- torches, fireballs, flaming unicycle, flaming origami and fire eating -- is for outdoors only.
