About Jacob

“Jacob D’ Eustachio has an infectious joy that gives energy and life to all he does. He was a crowd favorite and I’d work with him again in an instant!”

–West Hyler (director Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour, New York’s Big Apple Circus)

When Jacob enters the ring not only will your audiences be amazed with his technical juggling skill, they’ll be surprised by his unique tricks and delighted by his quirky humor. Jacob’s act combines the skills of a juggler who apprenticed under the legendary Kris Kremo with the visual comedy and quick thinking of an experienced stage actor and improviser.  Originally from New York City, and educated at Canada’s École de Cirque de Québec Jacob has since gone on to perform in 13 countries on 5 continents. Highlights include juggling with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, performing his act at the prestigious Circus World Museum in Baraboo, WI, and a year at sea amazing cruise ship guests with Celebrity Cruises. In addition to juggling, Jacob proudly made his professional acting debut in the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival’s production of The Tempest and when not juggling he can be seen performing improv and standup at venues around New York City.
