Anthony Gatto

Anthony Gatto (born Anthony Commarota in 1973) is considered by many to be the greatest toss juggler of all time. He was the first juggler in history to qualify 8 clubs. He also has world records for 7-12 rings, 6-7 clubs, and 7-9 balls. In 2000, Anthony became the first juggler to ever win the top prize at the prestigious International Circus Festival in Monte-Carlo.
