Okay... I've been looking on the net for footage of Bobby May and the only thing I could find was the short "The Juggling Fool". Does anyone know where I can watch some more of him?
Also, his cigarette trick... I also found a video of Barnaby doing it - has anyone else ever filmed themselves doing it? Any footage of ANYONE doing that trick would be awesome.
And while I'm at it, does anyone have video of Yngve Sveldon doing his 6 ball stuff?
Buy yourself a copy of https://www.dube.com/touchscreen/videos.php?c=documentaries&v=x2592&search=
I recommend buying it from dube, as that'll wind up Dick Franco (who claims to control the rights on all footage of Bobby May) the most.
Ah.... I see now. Well that sucks. But the DVD is worth it to me, so I'll pick it up. Any knowledge on the cigarette trick and if anyone else has ever performed or practiced it?
THANK. YOU. So there it is. The 3rd person I have ever seen do it. I love that I can see what is going on. Let me know guys... Is that it?
Mark Faje performed it on the Renegade Stage at the 2004 IJA, probably with a scorpion down his pants
I saw him do the cigarette trick, and I saw him put a scorpion down his kecks and do a trick...but it was 11 years ago so I can't promise that the scorpion was involved in the cigarette trick!
Wow... So that's 4 people... I assume this trick is less exclusive than I thought?
I cold have sworn Tom Mulica started his cigarette routine with it, but it seems not. As a routine, it's worth watching anyway
Love that routine! He said in an interview once that he couldn't practice that routine other then on stage, because it hurt so much so he needed the adrenalin. :)
haha, good story!
I am glad I skipped the video back to see where he threw out the cigarettes, I can sleep better knowing that he did not eat those...
The whole DVD was on vimeo for a few months, which allowed me to see it... Until some dick forced it offline. I wonder who that was...
That link isn't working or embedding for me. So for anyone else, try 32secs into...
No footage, but apparently Tirko did the cigarette trick on stage, as well.
Article also mentions May and Le Dent.
And we have another cigarette trick, but without cigarette, by our own gentleman Olivier :D

Vince Bruce - greatest lasso/whips act ever, for my money - does the cigarette trick, then whips the cigarette out of his own mouth!
Cigarette trick is at 4:45
Other highlights: Texas skip through small loop at 2:52, whip percussion at 6:45
That act is amazing! All of it is a highlight! So many tricks I've never seen before! Every sentence in this post ends with an exclamation mark!
