Meet Jim Vines
For over 10 years Jim Vines performed his unique style of close-up magic in the Off-Broadway Magic Show “A Taste of Magic.” Now he can regularly be seen delighting audiences with his award-winning magical creations at the famous Smoke and Mirrors Theater in Philadelphia and at the Comix Comedy Club at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
Jim has shared his magic throughout the US – at such venues as The Wonderground in Las Vegas, the Parlor of Mystery in New York, the Magic Castle in Hollywood – and in 11 other countries around the world.
In 2017 Jim won First Place and People’s Choice in Close-Up Magic at the F.I.S.M. North American Championship of Magic.
Parlor Magic is a show for a medium-sized room, suitable for audiences of 15 - 45 people. There's always lots of audience participation and the magic is a very personalized experience for the space and the particular event.
In Close-Up Magic, the audience gets to be part of the magical journey as they witness the impossible happening at their dinner table, right in their own hands. Close-Up Magic is a truly unique and immersive experience, never to be forgotten.
Stage Magic is for larger audiences and involves grand illusions and mysteries that can be appreciated from any seat in the theater. Stage Magic is where you might see someone float in the air or get sawed in half!
