Early in the spring semester I traveled to Pennsylvania to perform at the University of Scranton. In my short time there, I tried to take advantage of my close encounter with Jim, Pam, Dwight, Andy (or Drew) and yes of course...Michael Scott. Although I didn't bump into any of the stars of "The Office" (which I believe is actually filmed in CA), my imagination got the best of me as my driver from Enterprise described to me which parts of the show accurately reflect Scranton: There is a Poor Richard's Pub (but it's in a bowling alley), there is an Alfredo's Pizza - but there is no Pizza by Alfredo (or vice versa - we drove by whichever one was real), and there is a 'Scranton Welcomes You' sign. My driver drove out of our way to try to find it for me - little did he know it is now on display in a mall in downtown Scranton. He didn't want me to tell his boss that he wasted time driving me all over town looking for the elusive sign...so... "Alonzo" (as we'll call you) - if you are reading this, our little secret is safe. And if Alonzo's boss is reading this - your employee, "Alonzo," who drove me all over town on Enterprise's time and gas, isn't actually "Jeremy."
In February I presented my keynote, "Schmooze'em or Lose'em" for an in-service day for the faculty of Kansas City Kansas Community College. KCKCC is bringing me back to speak and perform my Mind Madness for their Enrollment Management Division in June.
I was honored to win the '2010 Stage Magician of the Year' contest for Ring 129 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
