Most parties need some form of entertainment. Along with great food and drink, a party needs great entertainment in order to be a success. The juggling show is one of the best shows for a party; not only can it work center stage but also on the fringes. For those looking for some interesting ways to keep their guests entertained, jugglers are one of the most entertaining and traditional ways of keeping a group going, especially when an additional spot of color is needed in order to keep the guests’ attention.
For The Party
Every party should have a center stage and side acts, and a juggling show definitely supports that. The side acts can be very specific acts; even comedy acts can work on the fringe of the party. Those smaller acts add flavor and can act as focal points within the grounds of the party, providing areas where people can meet and talk or even be distracted a little bit. The center show can then act as a topper, either leading up to a particular event or speech or as a finale to the party; either way works as a great send-off for the overall event.
At The Club
Some clubs like to hire entertainment for the evening as a way to add variety to the overall show. This allows them to find acts that better emphasize the theme of the night, as well as to add acts to act as buffers between different acts, especially if the acts may take too long to set up. Other shows may require some sort of special topper to the evening to act as a finale for the evening; given that a juggling show can combine comedy and high drama, this makes it a great entry for the finale of an evening.
A juggling show may seem a little too hokey for some crowds but that is because when people think of juggling they tend to think of a clumsy high-schooler trying to impress the girls. The reality is that juggling can cover a wide range of skill and acts, from an infinite variety of ball gags to chainsaws, and that most jugglers have mastered their patter skills to keep things interesting during the show. By combining a wide variety of different props and techniques with just the right amount of comedy a juggler can definitely make for an interesting evening.
