"The little trick of getting three objects to dance around in your hands has always managed to keep a small sense of magic...It's one form of insanity we feel everyone has a right to experience."

Matt and Myles
After their 4th successful hosting job last year Matt and Myles had grown pretty accustom to thunderous applause, standing ovations and, well, throngs of groupies. As self proclaimed comedy legends, they decided to take their infectious juggling style comedy on the road to mainstream America. Unfortunately, "main stream" America didn't get the joke. M + M went from stage to stage, leaving confused, stone-faced audiences in their wake. They panicked, and threw together a tasteless strip-juggling act billed as the "Sizzle Twins." For some reason, the WB network took pity, and M+ M found themselves standing nude in front of millions, as Steve Harvey made cracks about their shortcomings. ~~the studio was cold~~ They'd truly hit rock bottom. Matt dove head first into a debilitating addiction to Calorie Free Coke while Myles developed an unnatural fascination with his chest hair. Please show Matt and Myles a warm welcome back to the show. It's all they have left.    top of page

Airplay Jugglers

Airplay Jugglers
Jeff Peden began his performing career in 1987 and has been teaching juggling at R.I.T. since 1999. He has trained with professionals from the San Francisco Circus School, Cirque Du Soleil, and Ringling Brothers Clown College and has degrees in History and Education. Jeff formed Airplay when it became apparent that his son Wesley was even more of a juggling fanatic than he was. Wes's only desire for years has been to be a great performance juggler, and his continual efforts have paid off. He's only 15 and has already won several awards, including first place in the International Jugglers Association Competition (17 and under division) and third place in the advanced club-juggling competition at the World Juggling Federation Competitions in Las Vegas, 2005.    top of page

Lana Bolin

Lana Bolin

Lana has been juggling for nine years; she has been juggling to the Eels for five. She is a joggling world record holder! I think that's pretty cool. Lana also likes playing bass a lot. She is in a band now, but it doesn't have a name yet because all the names they think of sound really stupid. If you would like to suggest a name, that might be fun.

Steve Brown

Steve Brown

Steve Brown is a veteran performer, having done everything from Shakespeare to yo-yo tricks in 16 countries during the past 15 years. His website,, is generally considered to be one of the few pieces of self-serving internet propaganda that is actually merited. He has spent the past seven years re-branding the 76-year old Duncan Yo-Yo Company, developing most of its product line, and serving as its Promotions Manager. He has been seen on Bravo and VH1, featured in Teen People and Newsweek, was Owen Wilson's yo-yo stunt double in Zoolander, and is a published author. Steve walks on mountaintops and casts no shadow. Tremble before his might. Or just enjoy the show.   top of page

Jay Gilligan

Jay Gilligan Juggling is more than mere tricks that others cannot do. With enough practice, the entire world could juggle 7 clubs each. The pattern and technique are not a secret, each club flips 3 times in an alternating, crossing pattern (more or less). There is no humanity inside the pure technique, and yet juggling turns out to be an intensely personal and egotistical experience (WJF- who is the BEST??). Instead, juggling as art and even as a valid craft, needs editing and composing as much as any movie, song, or story. Just because we could all juggle 7 clubs, doesn't necessarily mean we should.   top of page


Jen & Tony

Jen & TonyJen Slaw and Tony Duncan started performing together in 2004. Initially working together on one routine, a completely new type of juggling that Jen invented, they discovered how well their respective talents complimented each other. From that one act, their collaboration has blossomed into a full-fledged partnership. Working with playwright/ director Russell Davis, they have developed a show with an amazing variety of skills, and, of course, dance, comedy, and attitude!


William Wei-Liang Lin

Jen & Tony17-year-old William stunned the juggling community with an upset win over the world’s reigning diabolo champion at the 2005 World Juggling Federation in Las Vegas. A native of Taiwan, William is excited to be returning to America to perform at Juggle Those.   top of page
