This clip from The Ed Sullivan Show aired on February 2, 1969. The Baronton Sisters, foot jugglers from France, take their seats and tables are placed on their feet. What they do next is simply amazing.It appears the women were a popular act on the variety show circuit, which were most likely thrilled to display gorgeous girls juggling all kinds of objects.

In their Ed Sullivan performance, the women flash the audience a quick smile before leaning back and lying upside down on their specially designed juggling chairs.Their tuxedoed assistant brings out one table for the sister on the right and she begins the act.
Switching the table’s from her right to her left leg, she waits until her sister has her table to up the ante.Together, the sisters began to tumble the tables in a circle for several minutes.
The women work with such a feverish speed that one might think the tables will come crashing down, but the four legs of the furniture are no match for their own.Not much is known about the sisters, only that their performance is included on the DVD ‘Ed Sullivan presents World’s Greatest Novelty Acts’
