Scot Nery is a comedy entertainer who performs a pancake juggling show around the world, works in television and film, and creates theatrical prop-oriented productions.
The call came in, “Scot? Can you do contact juggling?”
My answer was, “What is it for?”
“We need someone in Los Angeles to teach a celebrity how to contact juggle for a commercial.”
“I’m your man.”
I am not the #1 contact juggler, but I am a good teacher, so I knew whatever they wanted me to learn, I could learn and teach it. They sent me a video with someone who looked just like Amy Adams and I returned with a video of me doing the moves from their video plus some. I AM NOT THE BEST CONTACT JUGGLER!
They hired me to teach her. I didn’t have very much time with the sweet girl, but I mostly just tried to help give her confidence in the contact movements she had to perform on camera. She did a lovely job and it was incredible seeing a pro like her working for hours in front of a camera looking fresh with a fan blowing in her face the whole time.
