Zipcode Man: Juggler Turned Memory Artist

David Rosdeitcher is one of those people you hear about whenever you say you’re a street performer. It usually goes like this:

“You street perform? I once saw a guy who could tell everyone in the audience what their zip code was. It was amazing! Can you do that?!”

It’s always a little humbling.


Here’s an article
about Zipcode Man and how he got his start as a street performing juggler before finding his niche as a memorization phenomenon.

Makes you wonder what skill you have that could turn your act into something truly different and amazing.

Classic Performers: Kris Kremo

Bela Kremo, a famous Swiss juggler, taught all of his children the family business of juggling, but only Kris Kremo stuck with it as a profession. Kris went on to perfect a simple but crowd-pleasing routine with three hats, three balls, and cigar boxes that has won him numerous awards and the chance to perform in front of royalty around the world. His expert manipulation of these basic props, along with a great sense of comedic timing, has made this fairly basic routine an extraordinary success.
