Stay late. When the crowd begins to thin, maybe nine o’clock, something surprising may
happen: it’s Saturday night downtown. Perhaps Jim will gather a crowd and delight you
with a barrel of laughs in front of the main Market building, so saunter on over there.
Families will linger, for the kids love this clean fun. And Jim loves them, regardless of
the exasperation he designs for six-year-olds. It may take three of the bravest of them a half-hour to get themselves definitely volunteered and to get successful at throwing Jim his juggling pins, but you’ll not want them to catch on any faster, lest the show might end. An hour of belly-laughs is therapeutic, and Jim knows how to make it last, even with only three tricks. Working an audience with six-year-olds is his forte, and
we adults do enjoy laughing at their expense. So, if you hear an entertainer commanding
you to gather round and "move in," because "There’s going to be a big crowd," ignore the implausibility and plop yourself right down there on the cobblestone in front of him.
If you miss "The Jim Show," you can visit his website: www.smirk.com. How about that picture of him on his main page! Why, there he is at Quincy Market! Guess he frequents that spot in daylight, too. Perhaps he's found his favorite place in Boston.
