Joe Marsh was a well-known British juggler famous for inventing the Golf Club Balance Trick, which you can see below.
You can see Joe performing in the follow video, taken from the film Follow A Star (1959).
Joe was also a cartoonist and loved to create cartoons and sketches of obscure juggling tricks. I have a large collection of these that appeared in the Juggler’s Bulletins and IJA Newsletters during the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Today I want to share some with you from some IJA Newsletters from 1966. It would be interesting to hear from anyone who learns any of these tricks as a result of seeing them described here.
