Hands on fun! I gave a small piece of yarn to each of the kids in this photo. Together we are exploring the possibilities!

I am happy to offer my shows indoors, outdoors, or virtually. I work with any theme!

Because of my ability to adapt my presentation to specific themes
, I am a popular performer at many libraries time and time again, each visit having a slightly different focus.

Audience participation, laughter, storytelling, and skillful, joyful juggling are the benchmarks of my presentations. My wacky sense of humor appeals to toddlers and grandparents at the same time.


Tom water show

Playing with this year’s national summer-reading theme, I celebrate the juggling possibilities of water! Filled with comedy and excitement, it takes your audience on a water tour of the juggling cascade, fountain, and shower.

Yes, you can do it indoors with a few splashes of water on your carpet. This invigorating show works great under any meeting-room ceiling.

Outside— your front few rows (with ample warning) are going to get refreshingly wet. Think water balloons, sponges, and a bucket of water.

Inside or outside, everyone who attends the show will get to join in some hands-on fun. I bring the coolest juggling objects ever and share them with everyone. Don’t tell, but they are the solid form of water. And the kids get to keep their cool objects!

If necessary, you can get this show prerecorded for a virtual experience.

“The kids just love you. You interact really well with a crowd and made the day special for our littlest customers.”

Some other show choices…

A Visit From The Space Painter

This is my classic show for libraries which unlocks the secret of why I am known as the Space Painter. It is filled with skillful, humorous juggling and a generous helping of audience participation. In a delightful way, it explores the realm of the seemingly impossible. It features death-defying ball juggling, plate spinning, and the amazing juggling of small human beings! This show has no age barriers.

The Human Cannonball’s Last Thought

Based on my book of the same title, this collection of funny circus poems is a beautiful mix of humor, juggling, and story. Each poem is a mini story, most with a surprise ending. I blend my amazing juggling in with the poems.  It is a literal favorite!

“I heard great things from the kids and their adults! They were enamored. It really sparked their imagination.”
