It’s always nice to see a community recognize and appreciate its jugglers! Here is a small town news video about John and his passion for fire juggling.
Three things we like about this video:
- The awesome “Juggling with John” hoodie. Looks like comfy-cozy way to advertise the biz!
- The unnamed cohorts. They’re definitely in it to win it, and they’re juggling fire too! You may not have gotten any shout-outs, but we see you back there fellas!
- The reminder of how fun it was to learn to juggle fire . . . And how much it freaked out our parents! We remember being in the backyard, dad poised with a trickling garden hose and mom barking safety reminders, looking through a window from inside the kitchen. What a rush. Your parents’ reaction is confirmation that the people on the street are going to love it!
Leave it to The Simpsons to include a completely random pig juggling scene in the middle of an episode! Here it is in case you missed it:
We’re hoping no cartoon pigs were harmed during the filming of this episode!No comments
Here’s a short film by Alex Lee that beautifully expresses the reasons why jugglers juggle.
Guinness World Records has officially verified and recognized the 3-ball speed juggling record set by Mark Hanson last December. Mark made 417 catches in one minute beating the previous record by more than 70 catches.
Way to go Mark! You are an inspiration to the Juggling Subculture!

On Saturday December 17th Mark Hanson attempted to break the world 3-ball speed juggling record. With a self counted 417 catches in one minute, Mark is now awaiting the final word from Guinness to officially claim the title.
Here’s the video Mark submitted to Guinness:
In case the counting confused you . . . Mark counts what he calls rounds. A round is a set of three throws. This is obviously much easier than attempting to count each throw individually.
We hope you hear back soon Mark!2 comments
Even though we’re called “street” performers, usually we prefer the safety of sidewalks and public squares. Not this guy. He’s right there in the middle of the street!
Watch out for those cars buddy!1 comment
Harry Levine is the newest member of The Flying Karamazov Brothers.
Harry auditioned four years ago and was declared first runner up. Then, last year, the Brothers came calling for him to join the group. They dubbed him “Kuzma” and began training him in the ways of the FKB.
In an article on the AARP Web site Harry said,
If you’d told me 20 years ago that I’d be juggling with the best, I’d have said, ‘No way!’ But here I am, and that’s cool!
Way to go Harry!No comments
Apparently Matthew Peplinski likes to smoke pipes and is a pretty good juggler.
Here’s his attempt to do both at once:
Get’s a little smokey in there eh Matthew!
Three things we like about this video: 1.The background music. 2.The subtle midwest accent. 3.The high-pitched giggle at the end by one of Matthew’s fellow Order of Collegiate Pipe Smokers member.1 comment
For all of the nay-sayers out there who think joggling is merely a silly stunt or a cute hobby—-we introduce you to Bob Evans.
Bob finished last weekend’s CabbageTown Romp & Stomp 5k in 17:17. He averaged a 5:35 pace and earned 3rd place overall. And he juggled the whole way!
In an interview with ThePostGame the 4th place finisher, Barry McGraw, had this to say:
My plan was to sit on him, let him do all the work, and out-kick him at the end. Once he passed, I realized he was juggling and it really threw off my plan. I was heckled in the last 200 meters (by a friend) for getting beat by the juggler.
Bob’s wife, Trish, also joggled the 5k and finished with a time of 20:23. They are currently on a tour around america joggling in various races and apparently enjoying a life of joggling.

It’s always great to see a performer with a passion for a particular prop. For Riccardo Tanca (Riki) it’s all about rings. He recently released Dadaolta, a twenty-one minute video dedicated to ring manipulation.
Here’s the trailer:
Riky is an expert at using juggling and balancing to form rings into magical shapes, patterns and motions. We’re sure this video will deliver the best of his work.
