Howard Jay

Howard JayWhile he has been called ‘The Hollywood Magician to the Stars’ (a bit unusual for a down-to-earth guy from New Jersey), spoken of on National Public Radio, and regarded as one of the top professional magicians in the world, Howard Jay’s real magic is in bringing non-stop laughter and wondrous amazement to any corporate or private event, especially yours.

Whether enchanting celebrities, major corporations or the family-next-door, Howard custom-writes each performance, so that you and your guests become the real stars. By the event’s end, everyone is under the spell of his fast wit and warm personality, knowing that they have just had a one-of-a-kind and once-in-a-lifetime experience. The magic that Howard will perform at your event is the same top-quality magic he uses when he regularly stars at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood.

Howard Jay’s skills in the field of corporate entertainment are unparalleled. He has performed for hundreds of corporations, from IBM to ABC, from Beckman-Coulter to Eastman Kodak, from American Airlines to Greyhound, from Shell to Texaco, from Gold’s Gym to Kaiser Permanente, and from General Motors to Toyota.

Audiences are thrilled with Howard’s Stage and Close-up performances, but they get most impressed by the combination of the two. As the event gets started, Howard goes from group to group, performing his astounding strolling magic, charming guests with his warm style, and getting them to mingle and excitedly ask each other “How’d he do that!?”

By the time he begins his after-dinner stage show, the audience knows that they are in for something far better than they would have imagined or have ever seen before. Howard has created such a buzz amongst the guests that they anxiously await each magical moment to come. Howard Jay feels like an old friend to them already who just so happens to be able to create the most astounding magic and comedy from whatever is happening in the room.

Throughout the performance, Howard interacts with the audience, involving them at every fantastical turn, so the magic seems to come from them as much as from Howard. They become the stars of the show.
