Matt Jergens has been educating and entertaining audiences with his interactive performances since 1993. He has had the privilege to perform at countless schools, libraries, festivals, and theme parks. Learning to juggle in his senior year of high school, Matt dreamed of a career in the performance arts. Now, it's a dream fulfilled as he averages over 300 shows a year, traveling nationwide from his home outside of Columbus, Ohio. Here's what schools are saying about his programs:

Recent Feedback from Schools
Matt Jergens is one of the best performers I have seen in a school setting. His topic, Reduce Reuse, Recycle fit right in with the social studies curriculum for all levels K-5. His juggling skills and riding the unicycle were big hits with the kids and he related everything to the topic. There was audience participation in which Mr. Jergens asked questions for the kids to answer rewarding them with a recycle pencil. The students were engaged from the very beginning and continued so throughout the performance. The teachers agreed that this presentation was one of the best.
