Originally a small-town farm boy from Forest Ontario, after Bob Cates went to Bible college and university he spent several months as a missionary in Lithuania. But his love for juggling and wacky sense of humor drew him to the stage full time in 1995. Since then, he has performed all over the world while staying firmly grounded in his faith and very active in his church. His show includes advanced juggling, wild tall unicycling and balancing skills, illusion and so much more.

Bob and his wife, Jane, have been married since 2007. When not on the road, they make their home in Cambridge Ontario with their son, Hudson.
