Corporate Events

Howard Jay's skills in the field of corporate entertainment are unparalleled. He has performed for hundreds of corporations, from IBM to ABC, from Beckman-Coulter to Eastman Kodak, from American Airlines to Greyhound, from Shell to Texaco, from Gold's Gym to Kaiser Permanente, and from General Motors to Toyota.

With rapid-fire comedy and keen attention to detail, Howard custom writes each show to the extent that audience members often think him to be an expert in their field.

Audiences are thrilled with Howard's Stage and Close-up performances, but they get most impressed by the combination of the two. As the event gets started, Howard goes from group to group, performing his astounding strolling magic, charming guests with his warm style, and getting them to mingle and excitedly ask each other "How'd he do that!?"

By the time he begins his after-dinner stage show, the audience knows that they are in for something far better than they would have imagined or have ever seen before. Howard has created such a buzz amongst the guests that they anxiously await each magical moment to come. Howard Jay feels like an old friend to them already who just so happens to be able to create the most astounding magic and comedy from whatever is happening in the room.

Throughout the performance, Howard interacts with the audience, involving them at every fantastical turn, so the magic seems to come from them as much as from Howard. They become the stars of the show.

As a corporate entertainer, Howard is exceedingly successful at enchanting and enlivening guests at all different types of events, including:

Banquets -- Sales Meetings -- Customer Appreciation Events --
Office Parties -- Motivational Gatherings -- Pitch Sessions --
Employee Training Classes -- Trade Shows -- Hospitality Suites --
Holiday Parties -- Promotional Events -- Awards Dinners
