• Short Summary

    Great tricks involving billiard balls and a goldfish bowl by expert juggler Joe Adani.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'The Super Juggler.'

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of juggler Joe Adani throwing billiard balls in the air and catching them in little baskets that are attached to his top. He does tricks with the balls, making them roll from one pocket to another on his back and shoulders - very clever! This "human billiard table" manages to do a treble pot.

    He then takes a goldfish bowl, complete with several fish, and balances it on a pole. He holds the pole high in the air between his teeth, then whisks it away and catches the bowl on his back - youch! It is all in one piece though.

    This is a very entertaining turn!

    Note: the music played is 'Glad Rags' by Bayton (pub. De Wolfe).

    Duplicate exists in Turns Can 5 - see separate record for details.
