Juggling in January at B’nai Emunah!

The Aji Show was a perfect way to keep warm on a rainy, windy day in San Francisco. As the crowd thawed out, a kid-friendly lunch was enjoyed before the show. The excited children, and adults, then gathered to see the juggling they had come to see. Aji did not disappoint. He thrilled the group by juggling first one hat, and then kept adding more until he got to five! He recruited two assistants from the crowd, replete with capes, and each was dubbed with a special name. Alluring ball juggling got the crowd ready for the finale: juggling clubs while balancing on a seesaw suspended off the ground. Throughout the show, Aji sprinkled humor and audience participation.

Aji is the winner of the Best of the 2010 San Francisco Fringe Festival, a former Ringling Brothers Circus clown, New School Vaudevillian, and a collector of useless skills. While other people might spend their time learning a trade or studying to become doctors or lawyers, Aji has learned to solve a Rubik’s Cube in under a minute, card tricks, cup stacking, ping pong ball juggling, yo-yos and all manner of talents. He performs at Pier 39 and is available for parties. At the end of the show, Aji took questions from the audience and even demonstrated some more special skills upon request. Reluctant to leave, the guests stepped out into the mist and cold with warm hearts.
