"Dan is a true renaissance man
in magic. He invents some of the wildest effects I have ever seen."
In the late 80's, inspired by the
cartoons that had thrilled him as a boy, Dan Sylvester (AKA Sylvester
the Jester) began to use his skills as an artist, magician and inventor
to design and build some of the wildest, wackiest, cartoony-est
magical effects anyone has ever seen. In the 90's, Dan took it quite
literally to a whole new dimension when he created his madcap stage
persona, "Sylvester the Jester, A Real Live Cartoon." When Sylvester
performs, all the laws that govern 3 dimensional reality go right

Fun, exciting and geared for audiences of all ages, Sylvester has
been warmly received throughout the world. Whether it's through
the eyes of the cameras of NBC's "World's Wildest Magic" or ABC's
"Champions of Magic", the Royal family of Monaco or through the
eyes and ears of ordinary people in theaters all over the world,
what they've all seen and experienced is something totally new and
original - a hilarious, animated character with the unique knack
for transporting himself and his audience into a surreal space and
time where the absurd becomes wonderfully commonplace.
