The Raspyni Brothers:  Juggle and Jest

The Raspyni Brothers have been International Juggling Champions,Guinness Record holders,and guests on The Tonight Show. The Raspyni Brothers consist of Dan Holzman and Barry Friedman. Juggling is a skill involving moving objects for entertainment or a sport.

The most famous form of juggling is toss juggling. Toss juggling is where the juggler throws objects up to catch and toss again. The most common props are balls,beanbags, rings,and clubs. Some jugglers use more dramatic props such as knives,fire torches and chainsaws.You can find juggling acts at the circus, the streets,fairs,and theaters. The common number of balls you see a juggler toss, is three. Some jugglers can juggle more than tree, just like Dan Holzman and Barry Friedman did.

Juggling takes skills. Dan Holzman did really good with his skill with the whip. You could tell his act was nerve wrecking, because he had to focus on not hitting the person. Their jest acts were funny, they kept me on the edge of my seat.Juggling takes skills, concentration, and practice. I thought The Raspyni Brothers, Dan and Barry, did really good on their Ted talk.
