Biography

A master magician and comic, Jay Alexander is one of the top corporate and society entertainers in the country. He has appeared on the Today Show, Good Morning America, MTV, and is a favorite on many local morning shows. Star of the award winning CD "Learn the Art of Magic," he creates customized shows for Fortune 500 companies and is a consultant and co-author of many magic books, including The Coin Magic Book by Klutz Press.

Mr. Alexander is the great grandson of the legendary vaudeville performer, Gentleman Ben Darwin. As a child, he found a trunk in his grandparents attic filled with magic and his interest in magic took off from there. At the age of fourteen, he was honored to be the youngest recipient of the Society of American Magicians Gold Medal of Honor.

Jay Alexander creates custom corporate presentations for trade shows, sales meetings, product rollouts, incentive dinners, gala banquets, and brand marketing events, to name a few. He works with the client to create a signature moment: he used Travelers Insurance's trademarked umbrella to spear a chosen card out of the air; for the United States Postal Service, a week prior to the event he mailed a package to the conference director that held a $100 bill borrowed from the audience that same evening. His specialty is magically producing the guest of honor - the CEO may appear in place of a caged tiger, a burlesque dancer, or out of thin air. He uses a conference theme or corporate branding, combined with imagination, to design a one-of-a-kind experience.

Mr. Alexander's magic show is a high-energy, comedy magic show that is regularly requested at society and corporate functions across the nation. Jay creates magic with the audience, including the revelation of the words, names, and dates merely thought of by the audience. As "the Human Lie Detector," he offers $1,000 to any audience member who can lie to him without getting caught.

Jay Alexander's "New Swing Circus" recreates the allure of a 1920s speakeasy. This exciting offering in themed events combines the mystery of a speakeasy and the thrill of vaudeville. The real fun starts when he hits the room at the speed of sound with a show combining the punch of vaudeville, the heat of a speakeasy and plenty o' shtick!

Clients of Jay Alexander include America Online, Apple Computers, BEA Systems, Bill Graham Presents, Broderbund, Chrysler, Coca-Cola, Hewlett Packard, Intel, Lucas Films, Lucent Technologies, Microsoft, Merck Pharmaceutical, and Varian Semiconductor.
