The Flying Karamazov Brothers used to solicit random items to juggle from their audiences. If a chainsaw had been forthcoming, they would have accepted that challenge. IMDb lists 14 television appearances, most of them in the '80s and 90s.

Subject: [PW] Which entertainer first juggled chainsaws?

Several decades ago, when I routinely watched TV (1980s, or the '90s at the latest), I saw an act where a guy juggled a bizarre collection of different things at the same time, including a chainsaw. This was probably a first for television but not among professional jugglers.

My aging memory cannot recall who, when, and what, so I've been trying to find it online. I first thought the performer was the comedian Gallagher, but I can find no reference that he ever used a saw.

Does anyone remember this event, or can help me track it down?

Thanks in advance!
