July 4th 2017:
What a privilege to perform in "America's longest running 4th of July Parade," in Bristol RI!
One thing I can say is that juggling non-stop for 2.5 miles in July heat is NO JOKE. But I can also say the parade was incredible, full of so many amazing features, extremely well organized and the crowds were SPECTACULAR! Thank you to everyone who made this incredible event possible. And PS: "Happy Birthday U.S.A.," you unbridled teenager you!

July 3rd 2017:
What a privilege to trail the Laughter League medical clowns on their rounds at Children's Hospital today! I absolutely loved every minute of it. I am over-awed by the magnificence of our medical institutions, and by the unlikely yet unmistakable flicker of hope and of humanity brought to the patients and caretakers through true, honest, pure, kind, gentle, super-aware "clowning." Fingers toes and eyeballs crossed for my next call back, yet also just grateful for the experience so far.

Two pieces of great news!
1) Lovely feedback from a recent client:
"Jenny was a huge hit!!! My kids absolutely love her! When we have my daughters birthday in February we will be booking her again! Tell Jenny thank you so much for a fabulous addition to our birthday party!
2) I got called back for Hospital Clowning with the Laughter League!!! Next step is to observe actual performers working in the hospital; hopefully sooner than later. Yay!!!
June 26th 2017:
On this day I am auditioning for the chance to become a part of a Medical Clowning Program with the FoundationforLaughter.org. While I continue to be honored and humbled to perform for so many culturally diverse and infinitely interesting families around greater Boston and beyond, it remains the exception when I am impacting the lives of people who are experiencing profound medical or economic struggles.
Adding Hospital Clowning to my repertoire is something I have dreamt about for a long time now. And here suddenly is my opportunity to throw my proverbial hat in the ring! I believe I have the skill, experience, heart and drive to learn what it takes to make a difference in a hospital setting. Fingers crossed the directors of the program feel the same!
Here I go, breaking legs and busting balls.
When I am Juggling before Red Sox games, kids can PLAY BALL at FENWAY PARK! I pitch them a huge inflatable baseball right over "home plate" on Yawkey Way.
Everyone seems to love it (and so far we've *only* spilled a few drops of one fan's beverage... and he didn't even mind a bit)!
After the Red Sox game on June 25th 2017 it was Family Day at Fenway Park, where players and their families enjoy the park's entertainment and some much-earned relaxation out on the field.
I'm pretty sure I'm the only person in Boston who happened to be juggling three bats at home plate when Dustin Pedroia walked on by (sorry no pic available)!
Here I am juggling a bat, ball & glove on the pitcher's mound when I worked this event in 2015!

June 3rd 2017: Jenny emcee's the "Imagine" Stage at CAMBRIDGE RIVER FESTIVAL.
"We Loved Your Show!
"Just wanted to say that we thought you did a great job emceeing on Saturday, especially how you were able to keep the kids entertained while there were some challenges with the band at the end of the night. My son loved it which is extremely impressive because he only likes people that play guitar. (...You DO play ukelele which means he'd love you for that.)
"He's asked if he can come to one of your shows later in the summer so we'll be looking out for a calendar date that works. I saw you have them on your website.
Anyway, thanks for being great."
