Special Prize at the 11th International Circus Festival in Budapest (January 2016)
At the 11th Budapest Circus Festival Gentleman Juggler Jeton was awarded the Special Prize presented by the Gesellschaft der Circusfreunde e.V. (GCD - Circus friends association).
For 25 years the Frankfurt-born performer has been at home on international variety stages, and has made a name for himself in the circus world through his appearances at the Circus Krone building in Munich and other venues. From 16 January until 28 February Monsieur Jeton and his charming partner Carmen will now feature in the show "Fesztikon", a production starring the winning acts and other Festival participants in the State Circus building in Budapest.

From Paris to Australia – once around the globe (October - December 2015)
The last quarter of the year was filled with some wonderful bookings: on 17 October Monsieur Jeton performed in a gala show in Paris, where he presented his comedy-magic-pickpocket act for the first time to a French audience.
Just two days later, on 19 October he was crossing the ocean on the way to Australia. For many years, Gentleman Juggler Jeton has been a regular guest at the Show of the World Festival of Magic, so he already knew what to expect and was looking forward to all the great shows and theatres, such as the art deco theatre in Toowoomba, the Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Center or the famous Hordern Pavilion in Sydney.
A new stopping point on this year’s tour was the Ulumbarra Theater in Bendigo, which opened in April 2015. This is a former prison that has undergone some impressive remodelling work.
Jeton is rounding off the year with a guest appearance at the Hiltrup Christmas Circus, 27-30.12.2015. For infos and tickets go to: www.weihnachtscircus.de.
