Summer on the Hudson @ West Harlem Piers Park: Play Dates! with Ben Nemzer


Date: May 14, 2011

Come have a family play date with your children and their friends at this outdoor kiddie party featuring a children’s performer, arts and crafts, and neighborhood fun! Magician Ben Nemzer will perform.

By the age of eleven, Ben was being hired to entertain at local parties. His magic was featured on national television before he even finished middle school. He soon joined his local Society of American Magicians as their youngest member, and took first place in the club’s annual magic competition, before he was even old enough to drive.
Ben attended Tannen’s Magic Conservatory, in New York for five consecutive years (where he is now a teacher, one week a year) and continues to appear internationally at seminars as an attendee, competitor and guest. These experiences allowed him to collaborate with others who share his passion for delighting audiences and coaching from the best magicians in the world. He now co-produces and performs in New York’s hottest magic & variety show, called Manhattan Magic.

Start time: 1:00 pm

End time: 4:00 pm

Why, Why, Why

Why, Why, Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?

Why do banks charge a fee due to insufficient funds when they already know you’re broke?

Why is it that when someone tells you that there are one billion stars in the universe, you believe them but, if they tell you there is wet paint, you have to touch it to check?

Why do they use sterilised needles for lethal injections?

Why doesn’t Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why did Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose cruel idea was it to put an “s” in the word “lisp”?

Why is it that, no matter what colour bubble bath you use, the bubbles are always white?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialised?

Why do people run over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic trash bag will open from the first end you try?

How do those dead bugs get into enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart, then apologises for doing so, why do we say, “It’s all right”? Well, it isn’t all right, so why don’t we say, “That really hurt, why don’t you watch where you’re going?”

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that’s falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

Why, in winter, do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

Do you ever wonder why you gave me your e-mail address in the first place?


The statistics on sanity say that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends.

If they’re OK, then it’s you.
