Jackie is also a senior citizen. He appreciates the many challenges of his fellow seniors. Jackie uses his comedic talents to challenge seniors with memory games, while keeping it simple and very funny.

“My performances allow seniors to engage their memories, their bodies (seniors at my shows get up and dance) , and to simply feel good about themselves. It’s a one hour escape from their physical and emotional challenges.”

The late Dr. Norman Cousins wrote a best seller called “Anatomy of an illness”. Dr. Cousins tells us how, while struggling with his own health issues, he used laughter as a healing agent to improve the quality of his life.

Dr. Cousins has scientifically proved that that laughter is indeed the best medicine. Jackie’s performances for Seniors are dedicated to the groundbreaking work of Dr. Norman Cousins. So let’s all keep laughing!

Dear Activities Directors,

I am pleased to offer your seniors a free half hour of trivia and comedy.

My shows are interactive – I’ll have your seniors involved in every aspect of the show.

I encourage them to sing…and they do sing!

I encourage them to dance….and they do dance!

I challenge them with simple trivia games designed to stimulate their memory and improve self confidence.

They all participate and they all enjoy the process.

Please watch my videos, which include examples of my recent performances,

I look forward to entertaining your seniors.

Best Regards,

Jackie Lawrence
