Tweet of the Day

Who says juggling will never get you anywhere? I don't recall ever seeing Steve Martin before his Johnny Carson appearances, and only kept up with him after SNL debuted. (Thanks, WTM!)

W.C. Fields got his start by juggling too. He taught himself to juggle, just to survive after running away from home.

I watched a recent streaming special with Steve Martin and Martin Short. He was still doing the same juggling gag.

Good banjo player, too.

Yes, he has mastered the banjo and can play any type music on one.
It seems a lot of the older comedians could juggle, do magic tricks, or deft with cards. Maybe because comedy was more physical back in the day.
