One Day At FAO Schwarz

It’s hard for people outside of the Juggling Subculture to understand why we do what we do.

Josh Selig reminded us of this in a story he recently wrote on theĀ Kidscreen Web site.

In it, a juggler buddy of his, performing in the lobby of New York City’s famed FAO Schwartz, has an interesting encounter with two audience members that just don’t seem to get it.

Juggler named Pennsylvania’s Funniest Comic

Who’s the funniest comic in Pennsylvania? Stephen Caruso, a comedy juggler who won the title at the Keystone Comedy Festival in Altoona, Blair County, Pennsylvania.

According to an article by The Morning Call, Caruso,

a full-time entertainer and juggling trainer, grew up in Saylorsburg. He started juggling at age 13, after being inspired by a juggler at Disney World. “I pretty much lived and breathed it,” he says. When other kids were going to the movies with their friends, he was at home or at the gym, practicing his juggling.

Caruso was one of four entertainers who competed for the title and the $1000 prize, winning after the audience voted for their favorite.

It’s always great when a juggler shows strong in a comedy competition. Way to go Stephen Caruso!

Juggling For A Good Cause

An article in the Daily Echo tells how Pete Matthews felt indebted to the Neo Natal unit that saved his son’s life. Once his son was home from the hospital he put his juggling skills to work to show his overwhelming appreciation. Calling some of his performer friends, he organized The Big Big Variety Show with all proceeds going directly to the Poole Hospital Neo Natal Unit.

It was such a success that Matthews has organized another event, The Big Big Variety Show 2, taking place this Saturday.

What a great story of using juggling to do something good in the world.
