"Punches Gravity In The Face was warm, engaging, laugh out loud and at times moving and thought provoking. It wasn't just about impressive juggling skills, though they were demonstrated, it was a moving look at life, the love hate relationship we can have with the things we're most passionate about but how life's too short not to do what we love. Jon has a natural warmth that connected so well with our young audience (mostly 17 - 19 year olds). This was an absolutely ideal first experience of live performance, which it was for the majority of our audience, and my 14 year old son, who's seen a lot of performance in his time, said 'I think that's the best thing I've ever seen!"
"Comedy juggler Jon Udry begun by making a balloon dog behind his back whilst bouncing a ball on his head. Who said "juggling is boring!"? Whoever said it has never seen Udry. His juggling is skilful whilst his humour was new and refreshing. A perfect act for a family audience."
"Juggler, standup comedian, and with a Faustian earned ability to defy the laws of gravity (unsubstantiated, but seriously... how else?), Jon Udry brings a stage show to make any circus ringmaster weep into his lion's mouth. Honestly, the man is like a mix of Bez and Magneto - big-fish-little-fishing his way around the impossible and back again. OL, maybe Bez was a bad example - but the choreography attached to his show gives Udry a beautiful and fluid stage show. Plus he's funny, slightly absurd, and the winner of 'British Young Juggler Of The Year' ... just don't ask him to make you a cup of tea."
"Fascinating show, full of surprises!"
"Jon did a 45min set for us for our wedding in February 2017 and he was AMAZING!!!! Had our guests in fits of laughter and really was fantastic if you are looking for something to lift the energy after a wedding meal, but not do the predictable magician or live band. He was really interactive and that really made the audience feel part of it - and that's all ages, from kids to grannies! After Jon's piece everyone was talking about him, and I think even the venue staff and photographer paused to watch him because they were mesmerised by his skills!! Truly was money well spent and we'd highly recommend him. Thanks Jon for a fantastic performance!"
"To describe Jon Udry as a comedy juggler is like labelling Brendan Cole as a bit of a dancer. Udry's fusion of technical juggling and dry comedy asides to his audience provided one of the evening's many highlights. Young Udry would look great on television, but international cruise ship cabaret audiences are currently lapping him up by all accounts."
"Jon Udry is sharp, quick witted and totally unique. I guarentee you won't see another act like him on the circuit."
"Handsomely suave Jon Udry takes to the stages with witty introductions and lightning skilled juggling leaving you roaring with laughter and awe."
"Jon was a resounding favourite of the night with the audience. He has a natural comedic flair, rocking the audience with laughter with his ad libbing alone, and is an excellent, highly skilled juggler to boot. I recommend him to you unreservedly."
"Mr Jon Udry.. well, you hear the word "juggler" and straight away in your head you think you know what to expect.. a performer is going to jump on stage before you and perform a few tricks you couldn't exactly attempt yourself with a few balls or what not, entertaining? Fairly.. nothing to shout about or certainly usually not a topic you would bring up in conversation with your friends "Hey I seen this juggler last night.." but Jon jumps on the stage, the music starts, and he then effortlessly and simply blows you away.. This guy is definitely not your typical run of the mill decent juggler, instead Jon will impress you on every aspect of an entertaining performer.
Impeccable timing of his tricks to the music, utterly mind bogglingly quick hands and reactions to funky tracks together with very humorous and theatrical body language and expressions, he has a whole catalogue of incredibly inventive tricks to wow you with... simply put, he will mesmerise you.. and whilst doing this he will put a grin on your face without you even being aware that you are grinning, his audience participation will have you in hysterics with his witty and dry humour, heckle him at your own demise as this guy is not just quick with his hands... Jon has been performing at our venue for a few months now, and I sincerely hope he will be performing here for a long time! he really is one of the best variety acts you will come across. Utterly brilliant."
"Jon was deservedly the headline performer at the 2010 Crawley Circus Festival show in the Hawth Theatre. His act went down really well with both the jugglers and the general public in the audience."
"The true professional! He has the natural ability to make any situation work in his performances and that is down to his sheer talent and experience! Jon makes people want to see more and THAT is the key to his success"
"If you like juggling, then you'll love this guy!"
