Hi Party Planners!

Thanks for clicking on me!

So as my stage name indicates, I am a juggler, not just literally but figuratively too because I perform a wide variety of acts and perform at a wide variety of venues.

For company events and banquets, I do mostly roving entertainment -- table-to-table interactive comedy and close-up tricks. In addition, roving can include unicycling around while juggling Aerotech computerized glowballs and glowclubs.

For parties I most often do a zany 15-to-45-minute "Big Show" with juggling, unicycling (6-foot unicycle!), giant transforming origami, magic, comedy, many more vaudeville-type acts, and often a big fireshow finale (outside!). The remainder of the time is filled with "Post Big Show" entertainment -- teaching juggling/origami or making balloon animals.

Sometimes I'm hired to just do balloon animals. I don't twist the complex multiple balloon cartoon characters but I do twist a wide variety of balloon animals which I either attach to balloon leashes so they can be taken for a walk or attach them to balloon helmets so that they can be paraded around as a hat. I also make a variety of wild and wacky multiple-balloon hats and can make a giant six-balloon icosahedron ball (my own design).

I'm represented by about 20 entertainment agencies around the Bay Area of which Gigmasters is the one that charges the smallest commission resulting in savings for both of us, but one drawback is that I have to pitch for myself, so here it goes...

I've been entertaining professionally in the Bay Area for over 15 years. My venues include schools, libraries, hospitals, fairs, festivals, weddings, birthdays, and corporate events. My list of 'customers' include Motorola, Genentech, Industrial Light and Magic, Bayer, Kaiser Permanente, Red Bull, Pixar, Toshiba, Dreyers Ice Cream and thousands of happy kids! I've entertained on numerous local, national and overseas TV programs, performed at most of the county fairs in northern CA, and performed for five years at the California State Fair (all 18 days!). I've designed hundreds of original origami models, written a book, "Origami to Astonish and Amuse," and taught and performed at origami conventions in eight countries. I placed second on "TV Champion," a Survivor-esque Japanese TV show, competing against four Japanese origami masters.

OK, enough of that! Bottom line is that I am passionate about performing and I look forward to going over in detail with you how we can tailor my entertainment to best fit your particular event.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Shafer, AKA Jeremy the Juggler

Jeremy is a rock star. We had a birthday party of 40 kids, 50 adults and the entire party was mesmerized. He entertained us for over almost 2 hours (kids ranged from 18 months to 7 years old) and was professional and accommodating and I would highly recommend Jeremy. Everyone was raving about him. Thanks so much, Jeremy!

Jeremy was a true hit at our holiday party, which was a semi-carnival theme. I had over 500 guests and everyone was amazed and truly entertained by Jeremy's performance. He was definitely a highlight of the party! I highly recommend him for your next event!

My son's second birthday was a big hit because of Jeremy the Juggler! He was punctual, professional and entertained 14 kids ranging in age from 1 to 5 for an entire hour. None of the kids lost interest. He worked within the limited space available to him in our living room very well and made big enough actions to entertain even the youngest kids. Two negatives: I wish he paid a little more attention to the birthday boy (although admittedly, maybe I did not emphasize this enough before hand) and that he would have made a little more interesting balloon animals (but maybe the time limited his options here). Overall, I got my money's worth and would hire him again.
