Juggling Greats of the Past (K – Z): A Video Survey

It happened again yesterday. A juggler contacted me and asked if there was one place online that they could turn to where they could see videos of the great jugglers of the past. I told them that there really wasn’t one place and ended up supplying them with a tons of various links. This has happened before, so there is obviously a desire for something similar in the juggling community. Therefore, I decided to write these two articles, consisting of the best (in my opinion) Youtube videos of the best historical jugglers. The jugglers listed here are either retired or have passed away. I hope these articles are a helpful resource to the entire juggling community. The videos included here are in alphabetical order by their last name unless they were mainly known by a single stage name. Jugglers whose names start with the letters A – J can be found by clicking here. Many of these videos can’t be found through a Google or Youtube search, as they are unlisted. Also, please know that this is not intended to be exhaustive or anywhere close to that.
