Doctor Dropo’s Juggling Buffoonery
Here’s a whole book jam-packed with comic juggling material written by clown juggler “Dr. Droppo”. Contains an introduction no how to juggle, how to manipulate cigar boxes, do simple balancing tricks, and outlines 25 complete comic juggling routines. Easy enough for beginners, funny enough for pros. This book will show you how to be a hilariously funny juggler.
“The 108 page book is divided into sections on juggling, cigar boxes, and balancing. Each section includes how-to-instruction and a series of actual routines to try…There are some very silly routines here. How do these titles sound? ‘Liver Juice and Other Delights,’ ‘You, Too, Can Be a Stupid Juggler,’ ‘Plungers and Dirty Dishes,’ ‘Chicken Balancing,’ and ‘Sticky Boxes.’ The book is great for giving ideas for putting together your own routines. The juggling, balancing, and cigar box moves involved are at a very basic level and therefore attainable by most people.”
Tom Sparough, Juggler’s World
“(The author) reveals far more than ideas. Each routine begins with a list of props needed and a basic outline. He follows that with a detailed description of every word spoken and every move. Most require only basic juggling skill, and some, such as mosquito juggling, rely strictly on comedy dialogue and mime…People who want to develop and act for birthday parties or street corners, but who don’t know where to start, will find this book a blessing.”
Bill Giduz, President of the International Jugglers Association
