You ever get one of those unintentionally hilarious, left-handed compliments?! After yesterday's Magic Birthday Show, a youngster said: "Wow! When you first came in, I thought: 'this is gonna be BORING!' BUT, your show was REALLY GOOD!" (Told him "Thanks! Really glad you weren't bored by Magic!") :P :) ... See MoreSee Less

You know what makes birthdays MAGIC? A Birthday is YOUR personal OPPORTUNITY! Your once-a-year BIG CHANCE to CELEBRATE someone!! YOUR KIDS! YOUR FRIENDS! Or just to share with that super-cool someone in YOUR world, that you believe they are a true SUPER-HERO! Today, Mr. J salutes 'Strange Adventures' owner Calum Johnston's birthday. :) His decades of dedication to local artists, his crusading for countless charitable causes, and his promotion of reading make Canada's Comic King a man worth saluting! Side note: As you know, especially in this day and age of electronic distractions, literacy is more important than ever for your kids. If you are having a hard time getting your kids to pick up a book, take heart...at an early age, it was comic books that got Mr. J hooked on 'The Magic of Reading'...so it's a treat and a cheer that we still have such high quality local comic shops, with Captain Calum and his Strange Team at the helm! (As a passionate reader and lover of books, here's hoping your kids begin their own reading journey...if it helps you, at any of of Cal's three Strange locations, you can even pick up a FREE copy of The Amazing Mr. J's new comic!) As for today, wishing a Merry Magic Birthday to Cal, an inspiration to thousands and legit local hero. And remember, if you know someone with a birthday, use that as your personal chance to remind them of their awesomeness! (You don't have to make them a big, silly, goofy balloon...leave that to Mr. J!) :) #StrangeAdventures #Comics #GrandwayComics #MagicOfReading #Magic #Birthdays #AmazingMisterJ ... See MoreSee Less

You know, did you ever notice how weird and wonderful...go together? Like 'Alice in Wonderland', a wacky, magical, dream...or meeting JEFF GOLDBLUM??!? (Can you imagine Jeff actually 'singing' in your ear??) After explaining to Jeff that my job is performing as a magician/entertainer for children, and then presenting the eccentric A-lister with balloon gifts from his hit movies (a dinosaur, and a fly!), along with some Grandway Comics, the jovial Jeff expressed joy and thanks. So I then asked him: "What do YOU think would make a fun, unusual picture?" Pausing, the famously offbeat superstar grinned like a Cheshire Cat, exclaiming: "Hmmmm!...OK...c'mere..." as the Hollywood legend started bizarrely squeezing the back of my neck (!), smiling, blowing in my ear (!?!), and then singing in a low, incoherent voice, (Pure absurd madness!!), just as the camera flashed! (You can see my laughter in our picture together). Then the wonderfulness continued...though the Jurassic Park star kept The Fly balloon, and the comics, he strangely left me the dinosaur...but that was perfect, since I could then gift it to a nearby little girl, who was excitedly eyeing it. Weird and wonderful, wedded as one! Bottom Line: You know, overall, we are ALL weird...so may YOU personally always celebrate the Magic of YOUR individuality! In these topsy-turvy times, remember to embrace your inner magic...Your Weird is Wonderful! :) #JeffGoldblum #AmazingMisterJ #Magician #Magic #BalloonArt #GrandwayComics #Weird #Wonderful ...

Hey Magic Friends! What are your favourite childhood SOUNDS?? Jolly Christmas cheer? Fun with family? (Maybe even the merry madness of a Mr. J Magic Show?!) How about the VOICES from your favourite TV CARTOONS? Recently honoured to make Magic Balloons for Canadian legend PETER CULLEN, the original voice of OPTIMUS PRIME (!), Eeyore, Predator, and hundreds more, along with FRANK WELKER, the voice of Fred from Scooby-Doo, plus Scooby himself (!), along with Garfield, Hefty Smurf, Baby Kermit, Transformers' Megatron & Soundwave, Simpsons' Santa's Little Helper, Futurama's Nibbler, The Hulk, and even the memorably sepulchral villainous voice of DR. KLAW, from Inspector Gadget! Basically if you watched ANY cartoon show EVER over the last 50 years, from Gummi Bears to Gargoyles, from Smurfs to Simpsons, from Real Ghostbusters to Winnie-the-Pooh...you heard one of their THOUSANDS of cartoon creations! They even did some original recordings, in character, for yours truly, Mr. J! (!) Warm, very engaging to converse with, and hilarious in person, they actually got down on the floor, on their knees with me (three grown adults!) to play with my toys, and balloon gifts. Truly a Magical Experience in Toronto, to spend time with the talents behind the soundtrack to our shared childhood. Thought you'd be pleased to know the men who shaped all your personal cartoon memories...are magical class acts! :) ... See MoreSee Less
