Comedy Magic and Mental Illusions.
In Jim's Close-up Magic act spectators will have chosen cards and coins visibly change in their hands. They will cut ropes in two and watch as the pieces become one right under their noses. Single objects will multiply in their own closed hands - and more.
During the Mentalism routine audience members will have their thoughts read; and witness predictions (often made days before the show) come true.
As an Escape Artist Jim has liberated himself from all types of restraints; ropes, locked chains, mailbags, packing crates, etc. Audience members are encouraged to partipate by restraining Jim with their own locks. His most challenging escape was to free himself from a Straight Jacket while suspended upside-down five stories above historic Lincoln Hwy. in Dekalb, IL. (a task successfully accomplished in just 2 minutes).
The experience and emotions felt by the audience as Jim expertly performs his close-up illusions, mentalism, and escapes can be described in two words...amazement and joy.
"I am an expert in the entertainment industry, primarily as a Magician. My specialties are Comedy Close-up/Parlor magic, Escapes and Mentalism. I will perform anywhere in the world. I am available for any and all events of any size (public or private), in any location, where the goal is professional entertainment at it's best!" Jim Saylor
