Believe it or not, a Fort Thomas, Ky. man can juggle three balls upside down for over four minutes.

Erik Kloeker is featured in the 10th annual Ripley's Believe It or Not! book Dare to Look! It features a collection of the most bizarre, incredible and amazing true stories from around the world.

Kloeker is in the 'Feats' section of the book.

In 2007, he broke the world record for upside-down juggling while on the USS Nightmare. Suspended from a homemade trapeze, he juggled three balls for four minutes and five seconds.

And this Northern Kentucky native can do more than just juggle upside down. He and his brother started the Pickled Brothers Circus, which is based in Florence.

Together they specialize in fire-eating, sword swallowing, bullwhip artistry, lying on a bed of nails and more. In addition to Ripley's Believe It or Not!, they've been on The Tonight Show, Guinness World Records, Animal Planet, MTV and even the Jerry Springer Show.

Kloeker said at age 13, he saw a man juggling at the state fair and decided he'd like to try. He went home and taught himself, his brother got involved, and the rest was history!
