Professional magician Jim Combs of South Jersey Magic provides fun family friendly magic show entertainment for any age and any occasion.

From social and corporate events, summer camps & programs, senior magic shows, school and daycare magic shows and birthday party magic shows.

From classic magic to comedy magic to mentailsm Jim can entertain many different types of audiences and in many types of venues. Our shows are designed to be fun for everyone and family friendly. Jim performs solo or with his children Cecilia and Peter for the full Combs Family Magic Show.

There are several things that separate my magic shows from other magician acts. First we are a family business, I perform about 30% of my shows with my two children, Cecilia 10 and Peter 8 years old. They have a way of connecting to children and adults in a way that I cannot. I learned from our first performance together in a theater in Phila., why W.C. Fields said 'Never work with children or Animals” they do steal the show. However in our case it's a lot of fun for everyone especially when we perform for seniors. Because we have an act together I get feedback from my children on everything I/we do (whether I want I t or not). They tell me if the magic effect or the joke works for them or not. If it does I/we keep it and if it doesn't we get rid of it. All of this is a grat asset for a family friendly magic show.

Second, our shows are shows. I have seen several magicians that are technically wonderful and I admire their skills however after a few effects it all just runs together. They open up their briefcase and off they go. I write a script that tells stories to set up the effects or create effects to teach a lesson. We use music and sound effects as well through out the shows.

I started entertaining when I was a child. I learned magic when I was 10 years old and would perform for the neighborhood children I even performed for a few birthday parties. As a teenager I left magic for music (although I was always ready with a card trick or two). I attended college for music composition and after college I toured North America with the shows Jesus Christ Superstar and The Wiz as well as a a few show bands performing in casinos and hotels. As the years when on I entered the sales world as a motivational/sales speaker for several companies with highlights of traveling again throughout North America as well as the Caribbean islands several times. However it was my 5 year old son wanting a magician for his 6th. birthday party that brought me back to magic. I decided to put a show together for him and include him and his sister in the act. Both my children fell in love with magic and now 4 years later we perform together (they also perform solo) every month and are having a blast!

When booking a magician you should:

First understand and decide what type of magic you want for your venue/event; stage magic/mentalism show (for a large group), parlor magic/mentalism show (in-home for a small group) or close-up/strolling magic/mentalism (one-on-one). This way you hire the right magician for your needs.

Second, you should choose a magician and show that is appropriate for your venue/audience. Magicians and their shows come in all types of favors. I'm a children/family entertainer and do great in those environments but if you are looking for someone to perform at a Tattoo Artist or Body Art convention I'm not a good fit.

Third, hire someone who is a professional in not only their magic performance but in the way they conduct their business. This will keep your level of stress down.

Fourth, if you hire a professional then treat your magician/entertainer as such, be sure to communicate if something changes in the booking.

Remember, magicians and magic acts come in all favors. By this I mean some magicians are very serious where some are very comical, some are family friendly and others are not. Additionally there is different types of magic such as; stage magic, close-up magic, parlor magic (magic that can be performed in a parlor/living room) and mentalism.

He was amazing, very engaging with the kids and we loved his tricks. He kept control of over 30 7 year olds and they were a tough crowd! I would highly recommend him!
