Fred Anderson at The Original Scratch-n-Sniff Variety Show in San Francisco

Magician & Juggler


It’s 1975 – San Francisco State College; It was the latest fad – Juggling! (After yo-yo’s and before skate boards…) From the first day Fred was hooked. As he improved he was able to perform at local festivals and The Renaissance Faire. Over the four years of college juggling gradually turned from a hobby to a passion to a profession.

Entertaining was so much more fun than his “real” field (computer science) that Fred decided to be a juggler full time… and has never looked back. Since then he has performed the world over for major international festivals including two World’s Fairs, The New York Comedy Festival, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.

His television appearances include several spots on A & E’s “An Evening At The Improv” and “Comedy Express” on FOX. In addition he has opened for Dennis Miller, Dana Carvey, Tanya Tucker, John Mellencamp and The Beach Boys.
