Suffering from eyestrain, Carrer took up juggling as a way to strengthen his eye muscles. He was billed as "The Swiss Juggler" and "The King of Jugglers". He went on to star on vaudeville and appeared in two feature films, "Du Barry Did All Right" (appearing as a waiter who juggles wine glasses and bottles) and "Dexterity", both in 1937.
Carrer was also a skilled builder and made most of the magical apparatus for his wife as well as managed her shows.
