The Bremlovs

The Bremlovs were a Czechoslovakian club passing troupe originally consisting of Karel Dvorak and his children Karla and Rudolf. They debuted in 1934.

Eventually, Karla’s husband Gustav Kura and Rudolf’s wife Jana joined the troupe. They were extremely influential to Eastern European jugglers for decades.

Karel retired in 1954 and passed away in 1972. The act broke apart in 1959, with Rudolf, now known as Rudy Bremlov, performing a comedy juggling act with Jana. Rudy Bremlov passed away in 1976 at the age of 53.

Meanwhile, Karla, Gustav, and their son Jack Bremlov (born Jack Kura in 1948) formed the Bremlov Trio.

Karla and Gustav retired in 1973 and Jack went solo. That same year, Jack became one of the first jugglers to perform 7 clubs. He also juggled with hats, cigar boxes, balls (with pocket catches), giant flags, and discs. Jack also presented a plate spinning act as well.

Jack Bremlov was still performing as of 2013.
