Tuey Wilson, Comic Stunt Juggler!

5:00 & 7:00 pm shows scheduled on the Free Stage

 

Tuey’s performance does not easily fit categorization. At one moment

the audience is bursting with laughter at his quick wit and hilarious

interplay. Moments later they are gasping and applauding, watching a display

of skill that is awe inspiring. Whether juggling five rings while standing on top

of a ladder, performing his eleven-part combination trick, or using spinning balls

to shoot Nerf arrows, Tuey goes well beyond the usual juggling skills

to include a wide array of manipulations.

 

His personality on stage is an unlikely blend of “regular guy” and “quirky oddball,”

which means everyone can relate to his charm and humor. Tuey’s show is a

perfect blend of family-friendly comedy, jaw-dropping skills, and danger.
