About the Program

One after another, Jim's routines will keep students and teachers fascinated. As always, there is a lot of comedy and a lot of audience participation to help students focus on and remember the objectives and educational content.

Like all of Jim's programs, this is a professionally scripted show, written with proper sequencing for high and low spots to provide children with lots of excitement but prevent them from becoming unruly. Children who are called on to assist are always rewarded and never embarrassed. Teachers and principals always comment on how wonderfully Jim handles children. In addition, Jim adds special humorous touches that just the adults will understand and enjoy.

As always, Jim brings all of his own props and tables, has specially-tailored costuming and carries his own backdrop and "anywhere" sound system. This is an act that can be performed in almost any location, large rooms or small, stage, auditorium, classroom or cafeteria. It can be adjusted to be suitable for groups of from 10 to 250. Schools with larger enrollments should have two programs. Splitting a full-range school into, say, one K-2 program and another for grades 3-5 allows Jim to customize the language, objectives and vocabulary to the different grade levels. When performing for Primary grades, Jim will make the program lighter, faster and more fun. When presenting the same program to Upper Elementary, Jim will use higher vocabulary, and focus more strongly on the objectives and cause and effect.
