The Void – Juggler | UK
Armed with bright pink props and a sense of fun, The Void presents a technically high skill level of juggling tricks mixed with equal measures of daftness and bemusement at the weirdness of the everyday. The public are brought in on the act too, whether it be having a go with a swiftly de-pocketed skill toy, helping out with a hat trick, or becoming an essential element in the Five Ball Vanish routine.
The Void has been juggling for 12 years, and no-ones going to stop him now. Due to a certain degree of indecision, he has spent this time in developing his skills in a bewildering array of toys including balls, clubs, knives, diabolo, hats, yo-yo, devil stick, shaker cups, stilts, hacky sack, plates, cigar boxes, fire and luminescent props all bow down to The Voids dominion.
Literally hundreds of people have had their lives enriched by learning to juggle at one of Voids workshops. In fact, the next time you see a juggler busking on the street, it could well be his fault (He would like to take this opportunity to apologise). He was also a major player in The Great Yo-yo Explosion of 98, causing havoc and black eyes amidst myriad children (no apology), and later went on to a storming victory to become British Yo-yo Champion. (The fame! The adulation! The plaudits!….. Where are they all?).
The Void also wears out many shoes as a walkabout entertainer, drawing gasps of amazement from passers-by (“whys he doing that?”), and sometimes they even throw money at him (pity can be an overwhelming compulsion).
Applause, smiles, heckles and laughter all figure in one of The Voids shows; sometimes amongst the audience too. Book him for your event, precisely because he doesnt take himself seriously!
Standard Length of Performance: 3 x 45 minutes sets
