Default juggling at mallory square

Last nite we had 9 jugglers at mallory! As Sonny Holiday told me one time along time ago,"once you've one juggler you've seen them them all,they all do the same thing.... juggle". Now it seems they all use the same lines as well. I saw one juggler(Tom from New orleans)the other nite do his routine, as he climbed on his unicycle to juggle 3 fire torches he looked over only to see the act next to him riding a unicycle juggling 3 fire torches. He told the crowd to watch that juggler as he fell off his unicle in a crash and burn that Evil Knevil wouldn't even attempt. Maybe there is still some hope for... comedy. Any way come on down, the weather's fine,fishing's good,whisky's flowing, and there is plenty of women to go around!

The reason there are so many jugglers is because it is such a successful street show technique. It happens to be a subject that lends itself to good hats. It can play large or small, is portable and very physical.

Your constant juggler-bashing is a clear indication that you secretly desire to become one yourself. Go on, you know you want to...

"Once you've one juggler you've seen them all,they all do the same thing.... juggle"

That's just because you haven't yet see me do it!

Guitar sight/sound/smell/taste/touch

jeep,

No offence but you are pathetic in your attempt to put down jugglers. Iím gonna be nice to you because I feel you gave some decent advise to Imelven re working with and around the NOPD (the David and Rosalyn tip was nice too). Trying to discourage him from performing was not so nice, however. Iíd appreciate it if you donít do things like that anymore Ö it bothered me and I donít like to be bothered.

Jugglers have the advantage on the street because they are so visual Ö when you combine sight and sound you can hold an audience betterÖ itís as simple as that. Mesmerizing a crowd becomes easier the more senses you can engage. Simple arithmetic.

Do us a favor and leave the decision as to how a person chooses to express themselves up to them.

P.S. If you need any other advise on performing Ö just ask Steve Ö I canít be bothered with musoís.

If you can create a juggling show that creatively incorporates a lot of interactive smell, taste and touch, I say you've got it made.

Juggling bowls of hot macaroni and cheese in a confined space would just about do it, at least for the first few rows of the audience.

It's easy to do the smell and touch bits but when was the last time you saw a juggling show with "taste"?

I invite children to bite me. Does that count for the 'taste' part ?

"The Human Buffet". The whole audience has to bob for food items you've attached to youself.

I believe it was Dallas that I saw on Clearwater Beach one time juggle multiple items and one of those items just happened to be an apple in which he took bites out of it while he was juggling.... thats taste... I wonder if he ever messed up and took a bite out of the sword once.... ouch!

His show consists of much more than juggling, He's a human volcano. But I think it was him that ate during his act. lol
