Bob Bramson

Bramson1Bob Bramson (born Bob Renner in 1933) is an amazing hoop juggler and hoop roller from Berlin, Germany. He is one of the two best hoop jugglers / rollers of all time, along with Howard Nichols. His career began in 1943 and lasted until 2002. He performed a long run of seven, one pound hoops on stage and flashed nine in practice. He also back rolled four hoops and performed the trick featured in the photo above, where four hoops were juggled through a head balanced hoop while leg spinning two more. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest jugglers of all time.
