Jacob Sharpe

Juggling up to 8 balls, spinning as many 4 diabolos, flipping as many as 1 times over as much as 1 small child, Jacob keeps audiences spellbound with his intricate tricks and easygoing charm. After graduating from MIT in 2011 with a physics degree, he’s traveled around the world forgetting his education, performing for a year in Berlin, touring with a circus in Switzerland for 10 months, and learning and collaborating with the world’s greatest jugglers. As a Smirkus alum, he’s excited to bring something special back to Vermont!
