When Jester Jim visits the library – you know you are in for a treat. His shows are a fast-paced thrill ride that audiences of all ages can’t get enough of. Juggling? Check! Spinning iPads? Yup! Comedy? For sure! Toilet plungers? Uh, yeah, those too!
This year, Jester Jim is stopping by for a virtual performance on Tuesday, July 21, that promises more of the same, but in a safe and socially distant way. Beginning at 11 a.m., his 40-minute LIVE Zoom broadcast promises tricks, balancing and plenty of interactive laughs that you’ll be talking about for days. Come join us for all the fun and interact with Jim as he takes juggling to another level!
