Jim Oakley: Juggler To The Stars!
Smokey Robinson, Michael Bolton, Bobby Vinton, Pam Tillis, and hundreds of other celebrity singers and performers can agree on one thing...comedian and juggler Jim Oakley is FUNNY! For the past 20 years, Jim has been the opening act for some of music's biggest stars - as well as for former President George H.W Bush.
Jim's style of performing is reminiscent of great, classic vaudeville entertainers, but with a contemporary twist to appeal to today's audiences. Combining witty juggling with classy comedy, Jim Oakley gets adult audiences of all ages laughing 'til their sides hurt as he tries to eat a moving apple, juggle an axe, and invites members of the audience on stage to be a part of the show.
The clean jokes, slapstick juggling, and good natured audience participation that make up his show has made Jim Oakley a popular performer for the traditionally conservative audiences of the Midwest's entertainment capitol, Branson, Missouri. Over the years, Jim has entertained hundreds of thousands of tourists in Branson as the comedy juggler for The Gatlin Brothers and Bobby Vinton. He was also the featured comedy variety act in the hit production show aboard the Branson Belle Showboat. When he is not performing with the Branson stars, he is providing unforgettable after dinner entertainment for company parties, client appreciation events, and conventions.
Jim also performs as part of a 90 minute variety comedy show, "Comedy Two Nite" with comedian & magician, Chris Linn. This exciting show provides clients with a full evening of comedy entertaining that features two world-class acts.

“I invited Jim to join us in our Christmas Show in Branson. Everybody loves him every show. He's funny, he's a true professional, he's a great guy. One of the funniest human beings I've ever met.” :Larry Gatlin of The Gatlin Brothers - Branson, MO
“Your presentation at this summer's International Platform Association Convention was extremely well received. You were at the top of our audience poll - scoring 97 percent. We have an arbitrary rule of thumb that has worked for many years which holds that if a speaker's ballots from our audience come in at 70 percent or over marked "excellent" or "above average", as did yours, this tells us the speaker is tops and will get an enthusiastic response from just about any audience anywhere.” :International Platform Association - Washington D.C.
