Mat Ricardo: Showman

View Dates
The Gentleman Juggler, leading speciality act of the British cabaret revival and the UK’s most successful juggler, presents big laughs, serious skills, slapstick, and breath-taking spectacle. See genuine danger, dexterous elegance, and thrills, and of course high level circus, performed by a man at the top of his game.

He beguiles his audience with both old favourites and signature routines, including some tricks that haven't been performed for decades, and some that have never been performed before at all. Oh, and one that killed a fellow juggler in 1936. No biggie.
