After wasting the first 23 years of his life, Gerry Tritz took up juggling and magic in 1991 and hasn’t turned back. By the end of the 1990s, he had won competitions at various juggling festivals and started performing regularly. His 50-minute show incorporates magic, juggling, comedy and audience participation. He has performed everything from birthday parties to gubernatorial inauguration parties. He’s also performed twice at the Missouri Governor’s Mansion at its annual Easter egg hunt. His sometimes silly style and always family-friendly shows make him a hit with kids and adults alike.
