Former Teaneck Resident Launches Virtual Magic Show From Montreal

A graduate of Teaneck High School, Jonathan Levey, who now lives in Montreal, works by day as an employment specialist and workshop presenter at Federation CJA Montreal’s Ometz agency. Ometz, which began in 2008, is the result of the merger of Jewish Employment Montreal, Jewish Family Services and Jewish Immigration Services. The organization supports and strengthens individuals and families by providing a range of employment, immigration, educational and social services.

On weekends, Mr. Levey is co-owner of Max & Maxine Magicians and performs for the company. Back in Teaneck, Mr. Levey performed his shows for Teaneck’s Operation Community Talent, traveling to schools, hospitals and classrooms with special needs to entertain children.

Now that circumstances have changed, with Covid-19 keeping everyone at home all over the world, it offers fun interactive online and virtual Mr. Magic Comedy shows via Zoom. With their fun, light-hearted approach and ability to bring families together at home, its shows are good for lifting people’s spirits.

Participants need a desktop computer, laptop or tablet to log in at the same time and watch and sometimes participate in the virtual show. The 30-minute shows include visual/comedy-gag stuff aimed primarily at kids, but their parents can enjoy it too. His plans include magic-comedy shows that are more adult-oriented, with card, rope and sleight of hand magic tricks and mind-reading shows.
