If you spend as much time as I do watching comedy juggling you start to notice some trends. In the 80’s and 90’s there was a popular style of presentation where the juggler would do a juggle and give it a funny name. Club jugglers would throw flats and say “This is the San Francisco juggle…whoa man” and then fast low doubles “And the New Yorker juggle” and then maybe a couple of rounds of chops with some kind of cultural appropriation. You don’t see this much anymore (unless you’re a regular at Pier 39).
Michael Davis (or whoever he bought it from) performs the best example of this joke with his famous “juggling on a motorcycle” bit but the true master of it (in his time) was Sean Morey.
Here he is in 1980 with Carson
Challenge yourself to write a couple of these kinds of jokes. Then try to take it to the “juggling on a motorcycle” level. Ask yourself why this was such a popular presentational style in the 80’s and 90’s and why it fell out of favor.
