Plan your best group event in Richmond, VA
Jesse Joyner has been performing professionally since 1996. The Richmond-based entertainer currently travels nationwide full-time and dazzles audiences with feats of juggling, balancing stunts, and unicycling. Jesse incorporates a danger, energy and audience participation in his shows. Jesse has developed unique tricks and prop-manipulation techniques that no other performer can do: for instance, he is one of the few people in the world who can juggle three running chainsaws!
Jesse is one of the few people in the world who have completed a marathon while juggling. A gold medalist juggler, he has performed for clients such as HBO, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and the Richmond Times-Dispatch. His self-written "How to Juggle" techniques and lessons are widely used on YouTube and Curious.com.
Many people book Jesse because he is more than a juggling show - he also brings motivational messages with his show - talks that inspire people towards creativity and living out their dreams. His show appeals to kids and adults alike. Audiences go home with a memorable entertainment experience that will bring joy, laughter, and inspiration to try something new.

"He is definitely more than a juggler. His use of humor, storytelling and illusions had the kids and adults on the edge of their seats. I will definitely have Jesse come back again in the future!!!" - Scott R.
"Jesse helped make our daughter's 7th birthday party a huge success! He had the children on the edge of their seats during the juggling, had them laughing with his jokes, had them "oohing and aaahing" while juggling fire and ended the party by creating each child their own animal balloons!! And the parents had just as much fun. :)" - Belinda H.
"Jesse's program was one of the best, if not the best, program for kids we've done here." - Lane R.
"I'm not sure what is more impressive: juggling a bowling ball, juggling machetes, balancing a running vacuum on your head or keeping my one-year-old and four-year-old's wiggles at bay, minds entertained and bodies planted firmly on a 12 x 12 piece of carpet for forty minutes." - Whitney C.
"When I found Jesse Joyner, I thought we were hiring a juggler. But much to my surprise and pleasure, we got so much more than we anticipated! Jesse is a true all-around entertainer! His performance was suited perfectly for people of all ages and lifestyles. Not only did he juggle, but he through in some balancing acts, a unicycle stunt, and a comedic touch that had everyone laughing hysterically! " - Mandi K.
