The Top 40 Jugglers is a yearly chart maintained on YouTube by Luke Burrage. Each December, jugglers vote for their favorite ten jugglers of the year, and Luke posts the results - the top 40 most popular jugglers of the year - early in following year.

This poll originated in 2003, when David Mallpress posted a survey on rec.juggling, asking participants to list their top 10 favorite jugglers. Luke counted up the votes, made a rough list of the top 40 jugglers, and posted the results as an imaginary TV show transcript. The next year, Luke re-posted the survey on rec.juggling, and posted the new top 40 results there and in the IJDb Compendium. Luke continued to post the survey and results (as TV show transcripts) on rec.juggling each year until 2006, when he presented the results as the first episode of his Juggling Podcast. The 2007 results were also presented in a podcast, and after that Luke started posting the results as videos on YouTube. Since 2009, Luke has posted a voting video on YouTube at the end of each year, where votes are cast in the comments and then processed by a Python script written by Luke.

In total, 180 jugglers have been featured on the chart. Luke Burrage and Jay Gilligan are the only jugglers who have been on the chart every year so far.

The results for each year since the chart began are listed below.
