Occupation Juggler, corporate entertainer, and comedian

Jeff Civillico (born May 17, 1983) is a juggler, corporate entertainer, comedian, and philanthropist. Based in Las Vegas, he headlined the comedy show Comedy in Action at the Paris Las Vegas casino from 2012 to 2019 and was a guest performer at Nathan Burton's magic show. He is the founder of the charity Win-Win Entertainment.

Raised in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, Civillico became enamored with juggling after seeing a street performer in Boston when he was 11 years old. In his freshman year of high school, he founded the Juggling Club at Saint Joseph's Preparatory School, where he and other members would perform for free at nearby nursing homes and at a school for developmentally disabled children and young adults. In 1998 when he was 15, Civillico received a gold medal from the International Jugglers' Association, where he had competed in the junior division. He matriculated to Georgetown University, where he participated in the all-male a cappella group The Georgetown Chimes, leading it in his senior year. He founded the Georgetown Performers' Union to allow fellow performing arts students to help each other. In 2005, he received a bachelor's degree in theology from the university.

Civillico moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2009 to perform in the show Amazed. Although the show did not last, Civillico remained in Las Vegas and landed a performing engagement at Nathan Burton's magic show. After about a year being a guest on Burton's show, he started his own show, Comedy in Action, produced by Burton, at a 100-seat venue at Planet Hollywood restaurant in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. Civillico later moved to The Linq, previously The Quad, at a 700-seat venue. He most recently moved to Flamingo Las Vegas. Reviewers of Comedy in Action generally had positive impressions of his show, praising him for his seemingly boundless energy, his ability to engage the audience, his prowess with making comical off-the-cuff remarks, and his juggling talent. He ended his show at Flamingo Las Vegas in 2019 to focus on his non-profit organization Win-Win Entertainment which connects entertainers with disadvantaged children.
