Have you seen Charlie Frye do the Sidewalk Shuffle?
Juggling the jumbo cards looks really cool. Of course, he was born juggling.

It CAN'T be that difficult.
...or is it?

I always thought that Juggling would work against the "magic" ..

But I've seen Jimmy Talksalot do some really cool Juggling / magic and manipulation..

One effect, he is juggling 3 balls and all of the sudden he only has 1..

and he does some really cool color changes while juggling.. its eye candy

I've heard a lot of magicians who doesn't like magic and juggling in a combination. I've always thought the oposite. But I guess it's all about what kind of magic you do. Combining close up and juggling might seem a bit wierd, but if you use the term "juggling" in the way I think it should; wand spinning, pen juggling, lighter flicking, coin juggling, fits.

If we talk number juggling, say seven balls or juggling clubs - well it doesn't fit. Unless you do a big stage show. I've always thought that the linking rings and juggling is strongly related.

Magic and juggling are very closely related, especially when you start looking at manipulation and sleight of hand. I think you guys are on the right track with the idea of seamlessly incorporating the two, like George was saying about Jimmy's work. Jimmy does some hat manipulation that's part juggling and part magic too. Good stuff.

no prob there. I've never given a crap about what other magicians thought...

almost exactly what I was thinking! Begin with a few small juggling feats, move into the rings and take it from there where the magical moment takes you!

Gaddy: I created a routine some years ago that I still do in all my shows. It is all about a juggling tricks that screw up. Linking rings all the way. And I have a lot of fun doing that routine.

I'm trying to learn to juggle three rings this winter to use as a crowd gatherer next season. Based on early attempts, it's going to be a long haul.

Just had this thought. The last bit of my show is a rope and ring on again off again. Maybe grabbing the other two rings and juggling during the final hat line would be a nice book end.

Gaddy, I taught myself how to juggle when I was 14 after seeing a friend do it. Trust me, if an uncordinated klutz such as myself juggle anyone can. You could do be doing a basic cascade within a day. And the cool thing is it's like riding a bike: once you have it, you have it.


I would be extremely impressed by any beginner who could do a cascade the first day - unless he is using scarves. But then I may just be an extreme klutz. It is, however, not nearly as difficult as many people imagine to work up to three ball juggling.

I can keep 3 clubs in the air between 6 to 10 throws. It's been extremely difficult to make any progress from this point, though...

Arkadia: Sounds like a fun and novel routine. Any video of it on Youtube?

Personally I don't draw boundaries in entertainment. I will juggle, perform magic, physical comedy, and anything that will give an audience experience they can only get by my street performance.

So, Gaddy, juggle buddy.

just a suggestion...

Yeah, they ask you if you can do one more.

Although I got into magic as a form of highly abstract juggling, particularly coin flourishes and sleights.

Ironically while I can do 3 ball, 4 ball (a few of 5 ball), clubs, knives...and various juggling tricks...I can't do a decent coin or card flourish to save my life...

Imgic: Nor can I. Yet. Juggling is way easier.

http://www.coinmanipulation.com/ has some stuff though, so will be working through some of that when I get the chance. Some of the tricks are murderous.
