Johnny The Jester – Brisbane adult magician – is probably unique in the whole of Australia, if not the world.
Johnny has what is, in effect, a dual personality, both of whom share the same name. The first Johnny the Jester is an adult comedy magician who will amaze at corporate events, weddings, birthday parties, trade shows, at the races, or any other function where you want to entertain and impress your guests, visitors or customers.
For the past six years, Johnny has been entertaining the crowds at major shopping centres in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, and it takes a very special type of entertainer to be able to do that on a regular basis. Johnny was also the only Brisbane magician to be hired by the Queensland government to entertain over 170,000 people a the opening of the Second Gateway Bridge. If you were there, then you have already seen Johnny at Brisbane’s biggest ever one day event. In 2008, on World Youth Day, Johnny was the only children’s magician to entertain the huge crowds at the Pope’s visit to Sydney.
Johnny The Jester is also a regular volunteer at the Royal Brisbane Hospital Wonder Factory and has appeared at the Mater children’s Hospital on Christmas Day for the last seven years.
Then there is the other Johnny, the kids magic show entertainer. For his kids shows Johnny has several animals including Dorothy the dove and Stewart the rabbit, both of whom disappear and reappear in a comical fashion which simply has the kids screaming with laughter. Johnnny’s magic show lasts for 45 minutes and then he goes on to his other true love which is his educational live python demonstration. He is probably the only snake charmer living in Australia today.
Johnny believes passionately that our wild creatures need protection and always brings at least two different types of pythons to his shows. The amazing thing about this is that he actually lets the kids hold and play with the pythons! You simply would not believe the amazement of these children when they get to have a python slithering around in their hands. (It’s perfectly safe – Johnny always makes sure the pythons have had their dinner before he brings them to a show!). If you have ever had the experience of a ten foot python sliding across the back of your neck you will know why the kids just go wild for it.
But Johnny’s show is also educational in that he explains to the kids the differences between the pythons and explains where they come from. For example, he may have a water python which lives near rivers and creeks and then a Common Brisbane Carpet python which you may well find in your own back yard.
Johnny also explains to the kids what to do if they find a snake of any sort either in the wild or in the back yard and the vital importance of looking after our local habitats in order to conserve not only the snakes but all living creatures.
If you are thinking of booking Johnny The Jester for your corporate function or just for your kids party (and why wouldn’t you?) you can actually “try before you buy”. Johnny performs between 6.30 pm and 8.00 pm every Friday at the Everton Park Hotel, Flockton Street, Everton Park and at the Monier Hotel, Monier Road, Darra at the same time every Saturday night.
