Best described as a show without boundaries, Hilby is living proof that being German doesn’t mean you cannot be funny. While being an expert in juggling all sorts of objects as well as countless circus and variety skills (such as Unicycling, ropewalking, unsupported ladder, fire manipulations and eating, balancing stunts and the list goes on and on), he really gets his audience involved and creates magical and hilarious moments through their participation. Hilby has training in modern dance and mime and his body is as expressive as the spoken words he speaks. The long and short of it is that you will love this Skinny German Juggle Boy!

As a boy growing up in Berlin, young Hilby boasted no traumatic childhood experiences and exhibited no particular talents other than making funny faces at strangers and, as Hilby himself describes it, “breezing rhyzmically.” Hilby grew up doing all the fun things that people do when they’re not in school until they began to call him a grown-up. That’s when he packed up his old kit bag, gave his mom a big kiss on the cheek, and set out on a journey that was to lead him all over the world.

Since then Hilby’s travels have taken him to over 60 countries and all throughout the United States! Hilby is a truly international performer who is able to communicate through his humor with people of every nationality, size, shape and mental condition.
