Larry Weeks: Juggler Extraordinaire by David Soren

Lester Fulton Weeks, known on-stage as Larry Weeks (Salem, Massachusetts 9-24-1919- New York City, 10-13-2014) was one of the most famous jugglers in the history of vaudeville and night clubs. A naturally taught juggler from at least the age of 10, he became a professional juggler early on while growing up in the Bronx. His father Aaron, who worked for the Scandinavian Embassy, then taught him some basic magic tricks which the boy enjoyed and used in local talent shows and at Brooklyn College which he attended and where he also won the intercollegiate baton-twirling contest in 1937.
