••• "40 tricks and 40 jokes" Can be performed indoors - outdoors and at a park
40 40 is usually 45 to 75 minutes of fast-paced comedy magic including balloon animals and audience participation. There are 7 opertunities for volunteers to help including special tricks for the birthday boy or girl (if it's a birthday party) The BB child is celebrated as they make the magic happen. A dozen tricks and routines are performed.

This show is constructed to work in a breeze and when it's 90 degrees. Live animals aren't included outdoors due to possible heat, wind and other conditions. We don't want the birds flying away.

State law prohibits the use of animals in eating establishments so this is the show to use in restaurants.

Strolling Magic may be considered as an option.

••• "Boxes Tubes and Bags Show" with live animals, is designed for Indoor performance (No stage required)
Jay Leslie has a natural sense of humor. Shows are always fun

B ecause it is a live performance , shows varies between 45 and 70. For smaller parties the time is extended by making balloon animals

This program has many theatrical elements with routines that have a beginning, middle and end. It's as much theater as it is magic

••• Best ways to arrange the performance •••
A popular addition, The Chair Suspension can accommodate a boy, girl or small adult that weighs 45 to 135 pounds. We need a hard, flat, level surface to perform this illusion.
Helpful Hints:
• Have the show on a level surface,.• Every performance is arranged so the audience faces Jay Leslie (like a theater)
• Indoor shows require 8 feet of space from the wall to the first row of guests
• If outside, the sun should be behind the children so they do not look into it.
• Performances should not be in traffic zones like doorways and patios.
• Reroute traffic flow by closing off areas, if needed.
• Don't tie balloons to chairs, tables or the foot of the stage because they obscure the view/
• Distractions should be removed - food, pets, toys, balloons, music & games.

• Strolling magic should be considered when a stand-up show is not possible.

••• Other Considerations •••

Animals: Our animals are generally nit used outdoors because of technical and whether conditions.
• If technical or safety conditions are not acceptable, specific tricks (including animal tricks) may be omitted with no effect on payment, even if they were scheduled in the original agreement. Consideration of the health and wellfare of our animals is always the first concern.

Space: Basic requirements include water and electricity (Electricity is not needed for the outdoor 40 tricks and 40 jokes show).
• Jay usually arrives 45 minutes early (or more). This time is needed to set-up the sound system, assemble tables and other props
• No one should sit or stand beside the show including set-up time because of the space required to assemble things and the distraction they cause.
• Video taping or photography is welcome but only from the front.
• A parking space is appreciated because Jay usually needs to load equipment (up to 5 trips).

Times: Shows are generally scheduled at 1:00, 3:15 and after 5:00 pm. because most parties start at Noon, 2:00 or after 3:30 pm. The 1:00, 3:15 & 5:00 schedule gives guests enough time to arrive, socalize and eat. An hour or more after the party starts is usually the right time for the show because people are always late.
• Shows starting late because the host isn't ready or the guests have not arrived may be abbreviated with no affect on payment.
