Crazy Craig: Performer, and selfpromoter
Working at Lake Compounce Amusement Park in Connecticut, I met other jugglers and watched and practiced a lot to perfect my skills. They inspired me to keep going, no matter how many times you drop, just keep picking them back up. And most importantly, "It's not how many things you can juggle, it's how well you do with what you got."
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 60 minutes
Imagine sitting comfortably in your chair next to your friends and family enjoying a really energetic guy do rapid fast juggling moves back to back, and then, pointing to you, wants you to come on stage in front of everyone and help him out! What is he going to do with me? Saw me in half? Well if your a Mom, you are most likely to be hurled in the air onto his shoulders as you hold a hula hoop and as all the kids surround you playing Crazy Craig Extreme Basket Ball and you, of course sitting on Crazy Craig's shoulders, holding the hoop out in front of you next to your neck, are the basket ball hoop as your head is the backboard. If you are a Dad, you would be asked to lie down on then ground. Can you believe it! You are wearing a shirt and tie and now you find yourself on the floor and Crazy Craig pulls out the machetes to juggle over your body. Of course you are blind folded and after hearing the clanging of the knives and the crowd going wild you have nothing better to do than to bow and continue to watch Crazy Craig and not know what to expect next! After he juggles on a five foot unicycle he then balances up to twelve folding chairs on his chin at the same time! After that he put the chairs in a circle and had about seven Dads from the audience sit in the chairs and having them leaning back on each others laps, Crazy Craig Removed all of the chairs they were initially sitting in. It was unbelievable and hilarious trying to watch the guys get up! Amazing Show!
