Following humorist Tim Northern's appearance as a finalist on the nationally televised ``Star Search,`` Naomi Judd raved about his performance. ``He's the only one that could be a member of Mensa,`` she said. ``I absolutely adore the cerebral humor.`` Noted intellectual (and former game show host) Ben Stein agreed with her assessment, adding his own accolade, ``I love the fact that he assumes his audience has a brain!``
Coming from an Ivy League presidential pundit, that's high praise indeed for someone who never set foot in college. ``It was a great moment,`` Tim says. And it's exactly the response he's hoping for each and every time he takes the stage. A Nashville native whose influences are a veritable Who's Who of comic genius. ``George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Steven Wright—I like all of 'em.`` Once Tim takes control of the mike, he relies on much the same type of material that those classic comedians used to land in the national spotlight—plain and simple, Tim Northern is a word man. Tim continually hones that smart humor o his, seeking and finding new turns of phrase on a daily basis. On the road for much of the year, he uses that travel time for wordplay whenever possible. Like any humorist, sometime this absurdity of what Tim's saying tickles his own funny bone. ``There are times when I laugh just because it's so silly,`` he says.
One of the many great things about magic is how it works in just about any environment. It is a tool that breaks down barriers of communication, overcomes cultural differences, and creates instant connections between all the spectators in the crowd when they are all overcome with the same emotional response of laughter and astonishment. In the banquet setting, magic comes alive right before your very eyes—often taking place in your very own hands. For banquets and parties, Jeff strolls among the tables or groups of people, mingling with guests, and performing close-up, slight-of-hand magic. And, don't forget about the children. When bringing in a performer for a children's show, you want someone who can entertain and hold the attention of the kids as well as the adults!
