Professional Minnesota juggler Tuey Wilson breaks wrists during Duluth performance

Wilson is a staple of the Renaissance Festival and holds a Guinness World Record.

One of Minnesota's most recognizable professional jugglers is temporarily out of commission after an unfortunate accident.

Tuey Wilson, a staple of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, said on Facebook Friday he broke both of his wrists Tuesday after falling off a ladder during a Duluth performance.

Surgery, he said, is scheduled for Monday. 

Wilson is a comedic stunt juggler, known for his use of "ball spinning, combination tricks, shaker cups, ball and mouth stick tricks, and other odd skills," according to the Museum of Juggling History.

He is a prolific performer, often using ladders, fire and weaponry in his act, and owns a Guinness World Record for "Fastest mile juggling three objects whilst running in relay (male)."

During the COVID-19 pandemic he took to doing sidewalk shows in front of socially distanced crowds. He is a staple of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival, having performed at the event annually for 40 years, according to the Belle Plaine Herald

Wilson, in his Facebook post, said of the 2021 Ren Fest which starts Aug. 21: "I will be there!" 

He continued: "Based on what the doctor said, and if I'm doing the math correctly, the casts should be off by the start of the Festival. In the meantime, know that we'll start each show with a full story of The Fall."
