I have to say that I used Jerry twice and he gets there on time and ready to go. I appreciated his patience with all the kids scrambling over him to get a balloon animal and he had a smile on all the while. He made sure all 130 kids each got a balloon animal. And his show contained the kids and I was amazed to see 130 kids (who were just running around and full of sugar) sitting and watching attentively. Loved it. I don't write reviews but I felt I had to for Jerry, he stayed an extra 30 min entertaining and didn't ask for more $. A gem. Worth every dollar.
Paula is amazing!! I hired her to do a caricature picture of my family for this year and was expecting to drop off my pictures and ideas - and quite honestly go about my busy day ( I am a working mom with two children and my life is incredibly busy as i am sure you can relate!!) Anyway Paula was there with all of her paints, pencils and much more and I could not resist just to stay for a precious minute. The meeting began and I gave her my ideas- my family with my husband being Santa Clause and me and my two children being elves with a Christmas Tree and some elves. AFTER TWO HOURS I WAS STILL WITH PAULA AND CAPTIVATED BY HER WORK!! She made my idea into a work of art with adding things my family loves to do (a football in my husbands hands, my oldest catching it and my youngest playing Angry Birds- she also included a snowman and multiple reindeer) In my opinion the picture is priceless!! You can still drop off or send your photos; however, spending time with Paula is worth every precious second we have!!! I then hired her to do another caricature- themed Alice in Wonderland for my mom and it is amazing as well!! Her work is amazing, she spends time getting to know her clients and she is an incredible artist!!
Jerry performed an incredible Magic act for my son's 5th birthday party. He captivated the children with his act and humor. In fact one of the children almost wet himself as he did not want to go to restroom but watch Jerry perform!!! We had a few children that were heckling in the crowd and Jerry handled them with kid gloves with a kind DAZZLING performance!!! He brought me (the mom) in to participate and the birthday boy...It was the best 30 minutes ever. He also did balloons for all the children - if the children popped the balloons he graciously made another. My son says Jerry has to come to all his parties!!! I have also had several parents who attended say what a fantastic performance and their kids are still talking about my sons birthday party!!! Jerry is also reasonably priced and in my opinion worth every penny!! I definitely recommend Jerry and Caricatures by Paula!!
I recently hired Jerry through this website for, a function in my community. He was absolutely wonderful. We had a group of about 70 plus and he was certainly well received. We are a group "55 and over" and his selection of tricks was right on the money!! I would not hesitate recommending him.

Dazzled all the kids with his great balloon making skills!
Magic by Jerry was hired to entertain kids at a wedding reception, but both kids and adults were entertained. I received all positive comments from guests about his magic tricks and his balloon twisting. He has earned many new fans.
All About Kids hired Jerry and Paula, many times, to do children's magic show and facepainting, and balloon art. Jerry entertains and makes the children giggle with his antics. Also they love his balloon twisting. Paula is also so patient and creative with the children. And she does great story telling incorporating art. They are a great part of our events, making children happy, which makes their parents happy.
Jerry and Paula have worked at several of our Company events and have always done an outstanding job. They continue to "wow" guests of all ages with Jerry's Magic and Paula's Caricatures and face painting. I would highly recommend them for any event!
Price Range: $200 and up

Where it all started...
Magic by Jerry / Magician
As a boy my father would take me to Colon, Michigan. The Magic Capital of the World. "Where we would attend the Abbott's Magic get together. The two of us would spend the days sharing the love and art of illusion.
My father bought me my first magic trick "The Coin Case" it's a vanishing and reappearing coin. I share my fathers enthusiasm for the history and entertainment of magic. From that one trick I went on to learn and incorporate magic into a talent to perform for others. I have learned many fascinating magic effects and stage illusions, but I still hold a special place in my heart for the coin case....for it reminds me of my father and the good times we shared and spent at the town named Colon Michigan.
