Having trouble remembering standard gags

Spinning parasol with ball and string.
Plates that stack high and tip over as you run.
Ball on nose using tape.

My memory is going

Jay...INERTIA! (the eggs, tray, and glasses bit) Needs a table, and there are a dozen "pieces" to schlepp around, But, if the situation is "right", it always plays!

Also the balls "stacked one on top of the other".

Yes the balls. I forgot. I've got a pool cue, on the drawing board and forgot to mention the ball balancing.

And it's been so long since I've "Joey'd around"

Bounce a ball - then bounce another, which is made of clay and splats on stage

juggle crochet balls (one is rubber) - bounce the rubber ball on head while clacking two hard balls together

succeed at trick - pull ribbon & medal from pocket for jacket; miss a trick, remove the medal

Good, good

Besides a confetti bucket, what are some that the audience gets involved with?

I can't remember who did this, but he would juggle in the dark. He turned the lights off. Then he would talk about how he was juggling 3 balls, now 4 balls. He would describe the whole thing. (Everyone is sitting in the pitch black theater.) Then you would see him crawling around the floor with a flashlight.

I can't think of who did this...

The ping pong ball on nose is best done with rubber cement that way you can toss it up in the air and catch it on the nose before straightening your neck and showing it's actually stuck there.

Look at my video at www.chaplinlookalike.co.uk for ping pong ball with further gags. I use a glue in the UK called copydex as its perfect.

Also I have a routine (not as Chaplin) where I say 'ladies & gentleman I'll now perform some juggling for you all" I then head to my case, remove the balls and drop the juggling balls constantly, as I pick one up the other falls & my hat falls off my head continually. The dropping lasts for about 3 minutes & the audience are laughing throughout. I finish with the three balls in my hands & I put them back in the case whilst saying "and that was that, thank you very much".

The one I sometimes use is pretend to juggle behind my back looking towards the audience.
I try to flash some balls so they have a glimps of me trying to fool them.

I will let them catch me and reply " you think I'm cheating, well I'll turn around then"
And I juggle BBB (blind behind back)

Of course you need to be able to do this juggle pattern :-)

I juggle 4 inch bright orange foam balls (from the dollar store) for the kids and I like to sometimes bounce a ball off my forehead. It gets a laugh. If I drop a ball on the grass, I use the tip of my foot to pop it into the air, like is done with a soccer ball or Hacky Sack. Sometimes I will toss a ball high in the air and let it drop on the ground (so I get a good bounce) and then kick it up into the air, and then resume normal juggling.
