We are delighted to announce that Johnny Strange – specialist entertainer and professional daredevil will be captivating the crowds at the convention in March. His penchant for performing started at a young age, when he fell in love with the circus and all the traditional acts. He learnt to juggle which led on to balancing tricks, then escapology and roused his intrigue and fascination of Victorian side shows and the history of Freak Shows. He spends hours training and researching each act as they require extreme precision with no margin for error… he is NOT a magician – everything he does is real and taken years to master.
Some of his amazing and jaw dropping stunts include juggling chainsaws, sword swallowing, human blockhead, precision whip cracking and fire eating – with a comedy twist. He holds multiple Guinness World Records including “The heaviest weight lifted by pierced ears”, ‘Most swords swallowed in three minutes’, “Most apples chain sawed out of the mouth in one minute” and “The heaviest vehicle pulled by pierced ears” … a Cessna 172-P aircraft in case you are wondering!
He has performed on numerous TV shows, at Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe and also toured extensively across the world, performing shows and displaying his unique breath-taking skills in the UK, France, Sweden, Holland and as far away as Abu Dhabi – now he can add Benidorm to that list! His phenomenal stunts will leave you terrified and astounded in equal measures – make sure you are there!
