Long time performer and Juggler Rochelle has been the entertainment for many events. She has a great stage presence and your adults will love her wit. Rochelle now performs a The Ultimate Comedy Danger Show with Juggler Dave, but Rochelle can also be seen performing in many juggling strolls and acting in many different costumes. Rochelle McCollom was also the organizer of the Cincinnati Club Club, a recreational juggling club which made all of this possible. Most Cincinnati Jugglers consider Rochelle their Queen since she was the one who taught us and she was the one who first suggested that we form a company and begin entertaining.

Dave Willacker has been performing since he made the cast of the Ohio Renaissance Festival in 1993. He performed with the festival during the 1993 and 1994 seasons during which time he played a myriad of characters. While at the festival Dave studied improvisation, acting, and sword play. Since the Ohio Renaissance festival Dave has never strayed far from theater dabbling in acting, writing and directing. Dave enjoys writing original dinner theater entertainment, if you have a challenge let him know you won't be disappointed. In addition to acting, Dave has pursued his other two great loves, the study of theology and juggling. Ironically all three of these skills, acting, theology, and juggling, came together three years ago. While teaching theology at a Northern Kentucky High School, Dave and friends began getting requests for shows. Juggler Dave and Friends was born!

Originally, performing under the name Juggler's Ink to signify their willingness to adapt and write new material, they began performing many shows. As time went by they began to acquire new and amazing skills: stilt walking, magic, fire eating, unicycling, bull whipping, lassoing, and balloons. Dave went on to combine his knowledge of scripture and history with juggling to produce an innovative and riveting way of telling bible stories. As Dave began performing more and more Christian Juggling shows, and as some of the original members of the group retired the name of the group naturally changed to Juggler Dave and Friends. Some new members were welcomed and now the troupe boasts many new skills including: Balancing, Miming, Renaissance Shows, and Danger Shows.

Today, Dave Willacker is pressing his own boundaries in juggling and story telling. He continues to bring his ministry to many adult, family, children's audiences, and is designing new original props. As a writer he is working on a text book for teaching the Hebrew Scriptures, as well as original dinner theater murder mysteries.

As a performer Juggler Dave is now developing new props and skills including a catapult, bed of nails, and lariat. He is also developing new shows such as the Danger Show and pressing old shows to new heights. If you enjoyed one of Juggler Dave's performances a couple of years ago wait till you see him now!

Juggler Dave and Friends have performed at hundreds of places including for: The Cincinnati Reds, The Cincinnati Zoo, The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, The Cincinnati Ballet, Union Terminal, Proctor and Gamble, General Electric, Sawyer Point, Sharonville Recreation Center, Evendale Recreation Center, many Churches, many Parades, many Schools, many Golf Courses, many Libraries, many Weddings, and Hundreds of Birthday parties.
