Anthony Gatto

Anthony Gatto (real name Anthony Commarota) is an American juggler who holds several juggling world records. He began performing in Las Vegas at the age of ten and is currently performing with the Cirque du Soleil show La Nouba. Previously, he was touring with the Cirque du Soleil Kooza show.

Born in Manhattan April 14, 1973 and growing up in Maryland, he was a juggling prodigy: world-class by the age of nine. He made his first television appearance at the age of 8 on the program That's Incredible! Gatto's early exposure to juggling, and much of his initial act, can be credited to his father Nick Gatto, a longtime performer.

In 1998 Gatto met his future wife Danielle, who would go on to become his assistant during his performances. A professional dancer, Danielle added circus-style skills to her résumé to accompany her husband on circus tours. In 2000 he became the first and so far only juggler to win the prestigious Golden Clown award at the 24th International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo. He is known for his regular tours with Cirque du Soleil's show Koozå.
