German comedy and other impossible feats are standard fare with Hilby. Michael Hilbig, aka, Hilby the Skinny German Juggle Boy is a comedic circus stunt performer based in Ithaca, NY. Hilby spent his youth and college years in Berlin but eventually realized that Germany was just not going to get any funnier. After a brief career as a social worker, he felt prepared to move into a line of work making people laugh.
The New York Times calls Hilby, “rivetingly absurd.” Operating on the fair circuit, theatres, festivals, colleges, conventions, and cruise ships all around the world, Hilby performs his highly professional and excruciatingly funny show for young and old alike.
