Bruce Manners has been juggling for over 30 years.  Starting when he was in high school after his mother jokingly gave him the book “Juggling for the Complete Klutz”, Bruce has performed in a wide variety of events and has entertained audiences of all ages.  Bruce’s act, Comedy & Juggling and Stuff, is equal parts stand-up comedy, Las Vegas variety act, and audience participation.  No matter where Bruce has performed, he has consistently proven a crowd favorite.  As an opening act, Bruce has worked with such artists as Leon Redbone, The Rembrandts, The Guess Who Band and the Warner Brothers Orchestra.  Cleveland Magazine honored Bruce as one of Cleveland, Ohio’s “50 Most Interesting People”.  Bruce and his family relocated to Houston, Texas in 2006 and he has been thrilling audiences in Texas ever since.
