Joe Marsh’s Novelty Juggling Tricks – Volume 2

Joe Marsh was a well-known British juggler famous for inventing the Golf Club Balance Trick. Joe was also a cartoonist and loved to create cartoons and sketches of obscure novelty 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 Juggler’s Bulletins. Permission to use these was granted by publisher Roger Montandon. It would interesting to hear from any jugglers who see these tricks here and learn them as a result.


David Cain is a professional juggler, juggling historian, and the owner of the world's only juggling museum, the Museum of Juggling History. He is a Guinness world record holder and 16 time IJA gold medalist. In addition to his juggling pursuits, David is a successful composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and singer as well as the author of twenty-six books. He and his children live in Middletown, OH (USA).
