About Tall Captain Jack

I am a screen accurate Captain Jack Sparrow Impersonator. I have been portraying everyone's favorite pirate for 8 years. I am available for parties of all types as well as appearances at any venue or event, paid or volunteer/fundraiser.
I have performed for children as young as 3 and as old as 40. :)

Please contact me via email or cell phone so we may discuss the details of your event further!



Absolutely LOVE Tall Capt' Jack!

By Anne G. on October 25, 2014

Captain Jack is so completely professional! His communication was quick and on point. And he knows how to handle every age kid - even the big ones (adults too!) He kept everyone entertained for 3+ hours! I wish he did more characters - if I could build every theme around him I would. You won't go wrong hiring him!

an awesome performer with a great personality

By Shannon D. on August 23, 2013

We hired Captain Jack for my son's birthday party. It was a great success, and I enjoyed working with Tall Captain Jack both before and during the party. He is a fantastic communicator who kept in touch both in advance, and on the day of the party. He even helped me find the right party supplies. He was very clear on what I had to do to make him successful, and the whole day went perfectly. THANK YOU!

The party was a great success in large part due to the entertainment. Captain Jack doesn't just come and stand around your party - he creates an action-adventure. He engaged the kids (and adults) with humor, leads them on a treasure hunt (a great way to hand out gift baggies), leads a sword-fighting lesson and starts a game of tug-of-war before posing for picctures with the kids and the cake. Although my son was too scared of him (he knew he was coming but thought that Jack Sparrow would be short like him) - TCJ did a great job of trying to engage my son and when that failed, he rolled with the punches and we chose another kid at the party to play the role of my son. I enjoyed the birthday party more than most - and an older kid who came with his younger brother to the party said he had way more fun than he expected to have! The adults even said they'd like to have Captain Jack at their own party.

We would definitely hire Tall Captain Jack again. he is a true professional. Did I mention that he looks more like Jack Sparrow than Johnny Depp? The resemblance is amazing.

Without hesitation, I award Tall Captain Jack with 5 stars in ALL areas.

Tall Captain Jack

By Jacqui on May 28, 2013

I hired Tall Captain Jack from my sons' surprise pirate Bday party May 25, 2013. I could not have been happier with someone with such a great spirit. From our first contact, he communicated very well and even threw ideas around on how to make the party successful. My family and all the little pirates were mesmerized by his performance. He was very attentive and many of the guests thought he was a real pirate!! My boys experience with him was breathtaking and a childhood memory they will never forget... Despite my worrying about the rainy weather everything worked out beautifully..The party moved from indoors to outdoors and the lil pirates loved it!!!! They still cannot stop talking about Tall Captain Jack and the awesome sword fight, tug-of-war, the gold coins, scavenger hunt..I can go on and on! He was amazing and a perfect highlight for our pirate themed party. I would highly recommended him for any event.

Thanks Jacqui! It was a pleasure coming to your party. Xavier, Ethan and all the children were great to be around and perform for.

Awesomeness !!

By Ted on March 11, 2013

Tall came to our sons 5 year old back yard birthday last June. He rocked it. He taught the group to be pirates, follow their hearts to find true treasure. Left the boy a electric Jack Sparrow toothbrush. This guy was great.

I'm disappointed you didn't give me 5 stars across the board. Was there more or something i could have done better or different?


By Tara F. C. on December 2, 2012

Tall Captain Jack made a surprise visit to our son's pirate themed birthday party. He made the entire experience completely magical, from the golden compass to the treasure hunt! I would recommend him in a heartbeat! His presence made for a party that we will remember for years to come.

Fun Party!

By Susan T. on December 2, 2012

I booked Tall Captain Jack for my son's 6th birthday party. All kids were highly entertained. He was a very authentic pirate. My son is still in awe of his look and performance. I would highly recommend him for any pirate themed party!

Huge Hit with the Kids and Adults

By Michelle L. on October 2, 2012

We hired Tall Captain Jack for our son's 7th birthday and it was fantastic. Captain Jack was in contact with us as soon as we booked the event and arrived at the exact time we requested. Very accommodating! The highlight for my son was the sword fighting and "how did that treasure get buried in our yard". He came home from school on Monday thrilled because everyone was talking about how awesome Zachary's party was. The only downside was the weather, luckily Pirates and kids don't mind a little rain. Thanks Captain Jack!!

My Sons Friends Are still Talking About It!

By Mike D. on August 16, 2012

We hired Tall Captain Jack for my sons 4th birthday. Parents and kids were amazed by how much he looked like Jack Sparrow and the kids were mesmerized by him. Well worth it and parents tell us that their kids are still talking about the time they met and hung out with Jack Sparrow. Thanks Tall Captain Jack!

We hired Tall Capt Jack for our sons 6th Birthday Party, he was absolutely wonderful! Even though it rained he was able to make the event memorable and enjoyable in confined quarters for all kids involved! My son was starstruck and told me that having Captain Jack at his party was the best memory of his Birthday :)

Awesome Performance

By Jim D. on July 15, 2012

Tall Captain Jack was the surprise guest at our son's birthday and he didn't disappoint. He led the kids on an exciting treasure hunt, taught them sword fitting techniques, and engaged in a fun and hilarious tug of war. I would highly recommend his services.

Hired as: Children's Party Entertainment

He was superb and would suggest to anyone looking for Captain Jack to attend their party.

Thanks for a favorable review, Ted. Was I lacking expertise?

Great Captain Jack

By Celeste P. on May 21, 2012

I have been throwing birthday parties for my kids for 17 years now. And this was the best party yet, thanks to Tall Captain Jack. Everyone loved him. I think he also converted my daughter from a princess lover to a pirate lover after this party.

Response from Tall Captain Jack:

Both your birthday boys were great sports and active participants...thanks for a fantastic prop-filled party!

My son's BEST birthdday EVER!

By Jason G. on July 29, 2011

I completely surprised my son who was having a pirate themed party when Tall Captain Jack strolled into the backyard!! He then proceeded to keep 10 six year old boys engaged and enthralled for the next hour. They fought with swords, had a treasure hunt, and played tug of war before the Captain brought out the birthday cake. He was so identical in look and character to Johny Depp I think my son is still convinced it was him!! I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a unique boys birthday party!

Wonderful job!! Jack made it a party to remember!!

By Kimberly S. on June 27, 2011

Looking for something new we thought Jack Sparrow at our pirate party would be it, what a success. Tall Captain Jack was so entertaining for all the kids and adults!! I will never forget the look on my son's face when captain jack handed him a piece of "real" pirate gold...priceless. What a great time, he brought the party from 24 kids of choas to little mouths dropped in awe of the pirate in front of them taking them on a treasure hunt and teaching them real pirate sword techniques. Brings back the kid in all of us, Thanks Jack

He will go to the very depths of the Ocean.....

By Vanessa L. on June 26, 2011

For my son's 3rd birthday I knew I was in trouble when he asked me for a pirate party and a ~Real~ pirate. I decided to use the wonderful world of Facebook and begged for one of my friends to dress up as a pirate....Needless to say, Spack Jarrow, came to my rescue. Traveling from Boston, down to the cape, and then on the ferry to Nantucket Island for my son's birthday. Not only was he professional and great with all the children at the party....he was reasonably affordable. Even though he looked like Johnny Depp from Pirates' of the Caribbean movies, he had his own personality! Waiting for my other son's birthday to request him again!

Review by Andy A.

By Andy A. on June 6, 2011

Tall Captain Jack was amazing, he showed up and was truly a site to behold. A exact image of Jack Sparrow himself. His costume was the best compared to all the other Jack Sparrow costumes. I had to take a picture with Tall Jack and my only regret was I could not take more pictures. I emailed with him a little bit and from what I collected, he is a great guy. I also wished I could've seen him the next day, but I was off work. I recommended all my friends to go see him. He is definitely worth hiring and definitely worth keeping around.

Response from Tall Captain Jack:

thanks Andy!

Normally....THIS IS WHAT I DO: introduction to birthday child( making birthday child temporary captain of the black pearl), lead child and birthday children on treasure hunt( you provide the treasure and disclose the location of said treasure prior to me showing up at the party), discussing a pirate's favorite things to do followed by a sword fighting tutorial for the birthday child and subsequently all of the other children. if time, there will be a tug of war with me against all of the children. if not we go straight for cake cutting and then picture taking and then the return of my hat which means I am now captain again of the black pearl. Then, before leaving, you'd hand me an envelope with the pre-mentioned amount in cash.

This is hornswaggled from:

Additional Booking Notes

Occasionally i will have my other half tag along to capture great photos and assist in children wrangling. For an additional fee i will travel outside the Greater Boston Area!


Standing 6'4", I am the tallest Captain Jack impersonator in the world. I have one of the most screen accurate costumes out there. Things do not always go according to plan, and if it doesn't, i adapt & continue to make the party/performance a memorable and joyous one. I love to entertain and joke around and often ad lib during the venue that I am hired for.
