Topper Martyn (October 30, 1923 - May 24, 2004) was born Victor Martyn in England, who lived most of his life in Sweden. He had a popular comedy magic, juggling and ice skating act which he presented throughout Europe. He first billed himself as V.C. Martyn, the Eton Topper.


Martyn would often juggle odd objects while numerous balls, silverware and other items would drop out of his clothes, filling the stage. Martyn was also a big collector of magic and antiques.[1]
