    People who've never juggled anything don't seem to understand how easy it is to juggle three balls and generally find this goon impressive. Yes it's a live audience, yes dropping a ball is a very important issue. But given disconnected segments and not having to time it well to music I can easily do everything chriss can but I can't even straight up juggle 5 balls let alone do any "tricks" with them. The step up from 3 balls to 5 is immense. To me it comes of looking pretentious and silly more than anything.

    Which is why I found this parody really fun even though it's not as well timed to the music.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5RpVUk8P5A&search=chris bliss

    This ones' a laugh too. Probably 'fake' or the keys are out of order on the keyboard but it's still funny. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79r0S_nRFRw&search=piano balls

    w.r.t. the juggling , whats funny is that every comment of "oh it's easy, who cares" here is a cut video of me who's better cry sob... just makes me think the original is better. ESPECIALLY this parody one,,

    and yeah,, i can juggle 3, and have messed about doing so in time. i also got taught by a guy who could flash > 7...

    anyway,
    i just keep looking for old pop videos... or maybe old bluesmen .. todays artist,, kate bush... firstly for "baboooooshka" but then what about this

    Can you do four?
    I have never been able to get the streams to cross on four balls. I always end up doing two streams of two.
    Clubs are fun (if you like hitting yourself on the head with them).
    I have seen the third link before, he may not be hitting the right keys, but it certainly looks to have the right timing, which is impressive enough in itself.

    They used to have some extremely funny music parodies. This early Britney Spears parody is absolutely spot on (NB: Lyrics may not be worksafe).

    With an even number of balls you won't get to throw one with every other hand so it ought to be about the same difficulty as 5 balls juggling in the "infinty symbol" pattern. Juggling 2 sets of two balls one set in each hand isn't that difficult though but it looks fairly messy when I do it. At the pace and heigth required to juggle five balls I've never been able to throw the balls precisely enough that it doesn't deteriorate into me chasing the balls around for a few throws until I drop them.

    Sheesh :)

    But on the other hand. Is it really interesting seeing someone do something nearly everyone can quite easily learn to do; except in front of an audience and reliably?

    "Oldguyfight." The sound that erupts from that archaic human as he misses and flops onto the concrete is SHEER comedy.

    That reminds me of the unaired Ben Stiller/Jack Black/Owen Wilson TV series "Heat Vision and Jack", a sort of parody of 80s style Stephane J Canneli/Don Bellasario productions. You know, Knight Rider, A-Team, etc, right down to cheesy 80s style special effects.

    Jack Black an an astronaut "Jack Austin" the world's smartest man after being exposed to the sun. Owen Wilson plays his unemployed roomate whose is now a talking motorcycle. Oh, and best of all, Ron Silver plays himself "a gifted actor, and a cold blooded killer"
