  • Tuey | G.L. Berg Entertainment

    Tuey Comic Stunt Juggler Tuey goes beyond the usual display of juggling skills to include a wide array of manipulations. From the simplicity of tricks with a fifty-cent piece and yoyo, to the complexity of his ten part combination trick, Tuey runs the gamut, throwing cups about, spinning ropes, balls and rings, wearing flaming head gear while juggling torches perched a-top a seven foot freestanding ladder and one stunt involving three Nerf arrows, two spinning balls, and the ladder. The physical skill and coordination displayed on stage is of a level rarely seen in juggling shows. But, as we all know, mouth-gaping skill and mind boggling tricks mean absolutely nothing without stage presence and, most importantly, humor. Tuey has both. Audiences love his unassuming friendly style, and the only thing they do more than applaud during his show… is laugh. In short, Tuey’s unique likable style and eclectic blend of juggling stunts and humor immediately wins the affection and enthusiasm of audiences everywhere! Tuey can perform his act in sign language, for deaf and hard of hearing audience members. >> Career Highlights Tuey is a Guinness World Record Holder, a five-time medalist in the International Juggling Championships, and a recipient of the Unicorn Award at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. Tuey has performed on cruise ships, corporate events, fairs, colleges, schools, renaissance festivals in seven states, and at Tommy Bartlett’s Ski, Sky and Stage Show at the Wisconsin Dells. >> Testimonials “Modern people, TV-addled, sensation-drenched, hard to engage.
