Know Theatre of Cincinnati presents The Hopeless Throwmantics One Night Only! World Class Jugglers from St. Louis visit Cincinnati to perform for the first time.
Get ready to pick up your jaw off the floor! Get set to marvel the strength of their biceps and the power of their friendship! Prepare to smile and delight at their impressive displays of stupidity and verbal acrobatics! Award winning jugglers Curt Carlyle and Thom Wall are visiting Cincinnati to astonish you with their full-length variety show that combines thought-provoking humor, presented with an old-school vaudeville twist. Join us on October 16, 2013 at 8pm for a unique juggling show that is best appreciated by adults, but perfect for all ages!
In this full-length program, you’ll see eggs juggled, shaker cups manipulated, knives thrown, and more. With numerous awards from the International Jugglers’ Association, several degrees from accredited universities, and a handful of valuable life experiences, this dynamic duo is the most exciting Vaudeville revival show on the scene today.
“The Throwmantics are a pair of world class jugglers – they are actually ranked internationally – and we’re thrilled to be able to present them at Know Theatre,” says Eric Vosmeier, Producing Artistic Director. “This is a unique kind of event for us and we’re excited to be able to expand our family friendly offerings this season with what promises to be a great time. We’re also pleased to have been able to foster a collaboration with True Theatre and The Throwmantics – they’ll be telling a story at trueOOPS! a few days before the performance – and we’re also working on creating some free juggling workshops for Circus Mojo’s students.”

About the Performers:
Thom Wall is a consecutive two-time world champion three ball juggler, silver medal winner at the International Jugglers’ Association 2012 Senior Stage Competitions, and a fixture on Luke Burrage’s annual “Top 40 Jugglers of the Year” list online. His organic style has been cultivated through training with renowned juggler Stefan Sing, intense modern dance study with Donlin Marsh of the Martha Graham Dance Company, as well as acrobatic and theatrical training with Ringling Brothers’ Clown College graduates at the New England Center for Circus Arts in Brattleboro, Vermont. Today, Thom can be found performing at venues all across North America, for clients such as The Boeing Company, the United States National Guard, the YMCA, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, and Aveda.
With a style all his own, Curtis Carlyle fuses world class juggling skills and fresh, innovative comedy. A featured performer with the nationally touring Do Jump! Extremely Physical Theatre, Curtis now performs at corporate & community events, colleges, comedy clubs, fairs and festivals as well as television appearances and goofing around in the backyard. An award winning juggler (at the International Jugglers’ Association competition), a snappy dresser (well, that part isn’t as well documented yet), and an all-around nice guy … we have to agree with Mike D. of The Beasty Boys who said of Curtis Carlyle “That kid has the funky moves.”
