Unicyclist Rudy Horn

Unicyclist Rudy Horn

Rudy Horn was discovered by Bertram Mills' son Cyril in the 1950s. Cyril was not terribly impressed by the young German boy at first, although he had never seen anyone toss six cups and saucers up one by one and catch them on his head. Rudy's father then boasted that his son could do the same trick while riding on a unicycle, and Cyril Mills said that he would give him a job. This is Rudy Horn performing the promised stunt. To get the objects on to his head, he would balance them on his foot and flip them up. To top the trick, he would toss a lump of sugar and a teaspoon into the topmost cup.
