Another act made famous in the Vaudeville days, Hat Manipulation, is when the juggler uses a heavy, brimmed hat to perform skilful tricks by rolling, throwing, catching and spinning the hat up and down and around their body. Manipulation hats are created with multiple layers of felt to give them just the right weight, balance and stiffness. Tumbles, Twiddles, Spins, Rolls, Throws, Comedy and Multi-Hat are words used to describe the seven types of hat manipulation tricks.
