Jim Cruise “The Spoon Man”
The “Spoon Man” has been evangelizing for nearly 30 years in parishes and schools across the country with his hilarious, musical, interactive, comedy program. Jim is a graduate of Aquinas College, is a published author, is featured in Loyola Press school curriculum books and recently made it to the 2nd round of America’s Got Talent! Jim offers solid doctrinal teaching by the “Spoonful”. His totally clean act (never uses dirty silverware) will leave a lasting impression on you, as he goes out into the audience to play on their hands! It’s a stirring performance of family fun for all ages.
Married for close to 30 years with 5 children and a mortgage, this is how Jim supports his large family. If that’s not a testimony to the goodness of God, I do not know what is! Oops! Thought of another one! He drives a vehicle with early 600,000 miles on it. God is good.
Without the support of his incredible wife, Jean, this ministry would have been impossible. Jim and his wife find their strength through the graces of the sacraments and Jesus’ love and divine mercies. Asking for help from our Mother’s intercession, especially in devotion to (Our Lady Un-doer of Knots), prayer and faith has been a staple all of their lives.
Be prepared for some hilarious impressions, such as the rock n roll spoon player, and the rap spoon player. Audience participation is a huge part of Jim’s show; he may create a “mountain band” from the members of the audience or possibly start a “spoon off” between two audience members. If spoons aren’t enough, you may see forks and knives making music! Depending on the event, the FLAMING SPOONS OF DEATH could be the main highlight!
Spoon Man will have his book, DVD and trainer spoons available for purchase, after his performance. “Spoon Boy”, his book, is a 124 page children’s chapter book, about how little Jimmy got started playing the spoons. Big life lessons are learned along the way to Jimmy finding “spoon stardom”. His instructional video appropriately titled “How To Play The Spoons – Music From The Kitchen”, has been reviewed by 5 national publications. Jim invites you to join his growing list of the “SPOONED”.
