Best Juggler

Wally Eastwood jokes about how many hours of his life he wasted learning how to juggle. And the audience laughs uproariously, as they do at all of his self-deprecating quips. But the time was not wasted; Eastwood has turned the corny amusement into a fine art. As a performer and host of V: The Ultimate Variety Show, he juggles hats, bouncing them off his head like a seal; he juggles balls with his mouth, popping them up in the air like the first kernels of popcorn to escape the machine; and most impressively, he plays Beethoven by juggling down onto a keyboard instead of up in the air. It’s beautiful, funny and entertaining in a simply joyful way.
