Eric Girardi has been professionally performing object manipulation for over fifteen years as a world-ranked yoyo player, juggler, top spinner, diabolo'ist, contact juggler, stilt-walker, fire eater/breather/spinner, and an artist of over fifteen 'circus' skills. He can booked for his modern vaudeville show choreographed to music (may include historical/modern dialogue regarding the props); an interactive walk-around entertainer; run a workshop; or tailor to your needs.
