Jester Jim to entertain children at 7 library branches
TOMS RIVER – “Jester Jim” Maurer, who has performed for 14 years, will present his show that mixes juggling with beatboxing, balancing and comedy to children and their families in seven Ocean County Library branches during July and August.
Jester Jim’s performance is not your ordinary juggling show. With nothing more than a trunk filled with props and his engaging wit, he will have kids cracking up in their seats.
He has performed over 1,000 shows in more than 300 libraries in the tri-state region. He has also performed in area schools and has used his presentation as a motivational device to foster teamwork during business training seminars.

Beatboxing is a form of vocal percussion that is prominent in much of contemporary hip-hop music. This artistic form produces the sounds of such musical instruments as drum beats, horns, and plucked strings. People are also familiar with its sounds that imitate a physically manipulated turntable.
