Nicolo juggling


The Nicolo the Jester solo show is the centerpiece of Nicolo Whimsey’s offerings to children and family audiences. The 45-minute show is perfect for elementary school assemblies (K-5th grades) as well as pre-schools and day care centers, and emphasizes the joy in reading books, the thrill in writing and reading poetry, and the importance of values such as kindness, generosity, and tolerance. The Nicolo the Jester show also carries a strong message of perseverance.

Nicolo keeps the students amazed with his formidable juggling skills, and laughing at his verbal and physical comedy, all the while participating by helping Nicolo finish his poems, and by spinning plates on sticks and balls on their fingers, while wearing funny hats.

By captivating the childrens’ attention and sense of wonder, Nicolo shares his belief in generosity and tolerance with his original poem “The Art of Juggling Peace.” Nicolo’s “Story of Yimmee Gimme” encourages the enduring value of kindness and generosity, and he emphasizes perseverance at every step, as the audience urges him to “Try again, Nicolo” every time he drops an object.

By the end of the show, the students have memorized the chorus to his poem extolling the joys of reading: “Look in a Book”.
“Not on my iPad
And not on my Xbox
Maybe I’ll look in a book
Maybe I’ll look in a book!”
The Nicolo the Jester show can accommodate very large crowds in a packed auditorium, as well as smaller intimate audiences. Nicolo adjusts the material for each show to suit any age group from Pre-K to 6th grade. Nicolo has been performing the show for thirty years, and yet every show is fresh. His delight in performing, creating, learning and sharing his skills is palpable.

The show is perfect for Elementary schools, libraries, Pre-schools and day care centers, Summer camps, after-school programs, corporate parties, and any event that calls for an uplifting children’s show with a strong message of literacy, tolerance, generosity, perseverance and the joy in learning!
