Biography

Jon Udry has been training to perfect his skills in juggling and manipulation for the last decade. Having gained valuable experience performing with established companies such as Gandini Juggling and Swamp Circus, Jon is also more than capable of delivering fantastic solo performances ranging from street entertainment, corporate events, festivals, walkabouts, and stage shows.

His winning personality as well as high level of skill has lead him to appear on Radio 1, ITV, The National Brit Awards and even to perform at the world famous Wembley Stadium. Jon has showcased his talents in fabulous venues all over the world which include; Ireland, Dubai, Slovenia, Italy and Germany, however it was back in his home country that he was the first person to be crowned ‘British Young Juggler of the Year’ and has since won a number of other awards through juggling.

In Jon’s current acts he performs numerous skills with juggling balls, rings and clubs and incorporate the manipulation of different objects such as cigar boxes, hats, and diabolo. He is however, able to tailor any of these acts to your needs if you have a specific requirement.

Routines for Stage

Jon has a number of routines available for stage and cabaret. These include a routine with balls, rings, clubs, and cigar boxes all tightly choreographed to music with a high skill level. Again, he is able to tailor these acts for street entertainment providing there is an available sound system (able to provide the music in a number of formats). The requirements for these routines are minimal, and each routine can be subtly altered to fit the venue.

Hip Hop Clubs

‘Hip Hop Clubs’ is similar to the ‘No Balls Jokes?!’ routine in the way that it has a quick tempo, and is highly skilled and choreographed to a funky hip hop track (James Brown Remix – 3 minutes 37 seconds). It involves the juggling and manipulation of 1-5 clubs in a slick, stylish and funky style.

Tricks with Bricks

‘Tricks with Bricks’ is a slick routine using the manipulation of up to 7 cigar boxes. The balancing, throwing and tumbling of the boxes is tightly choreographed to a big band jazz piece that is 5 minutes and 9 seconds. Comical yet skilled, this routine is a great crowd pleaser.

Glow Balls

‘Glow Balls’ is a spectacular routine involving the performance of various vivid and artistic patterns. These vibrant glow balls strobe, fade and flash in a variety of colours and effects that are a delight for any audience to watch. This routine is perfect for stage and is also more than suitable as walkabout or meet and greet for nightclubs etc

Mixed Juggling

‘Mixed Juggling’ is a routine that uses balls, rings and clubs. The element that makes this routine different from most other juggling routines is that there is never one type of prop juggled at one time. Sometimes 2 balls and 2 rings are used; sometimes 4 balls and a club; and other times 2 balls, 2 rings and a club! This routine is set to a funky hip hop track with a good beat (4 minutes 8 seconds)

Fire

Jon is able to supply daring displays of fire diabolo, fire devilsticks, and fire juggling from 3-5 clubs. Fire juggling can be used in a street show (on request) or as a meet and greet.

Walkabout/Meet and Greet

Slick and Stylish

As a professional juggler, Jon has moulded himself into a specific character. My character is a smartly dressed, comical street entertainer. During his walkabout routine he moves around the audience/guests chatting to them whilst juggling and encouraging audience participation where appropriate and showing them close-up tricks and skills of juggling.

Glow Balls

The glow balls for walkabout is a very elegant and graceful character. This character is used more as a piece of art in motion for people to view as a spectacal as opposed to the above, that is more communicational and comedic.

Street Show

Jon performs a street show that lasts up to 40 minutes. This show contains a lot of juggling and manipulation of different types to a high skill level as well as lots of comedy and audience participation. This show can be altered in length for your needs, and is suitable for any venue.

Workshops

Jon is also available to teach circus skills workshops which include such equipment as juggling balls, rings and clubs, diabolos, cigar boxes, hats, devilsticks, spinning plates, unicycles and more. This is the perfect entertainment for weddings, fetes, festivals, family fun days, parties and more.
