See the amazing feats of Mr. Crispy. Mr. Crispy is a sword-swallowing Modern Fakir that graduated from The Coney Island Sideshow School. Ring-leader of this bizarre family, Crispy shocks the crowd with his glass walking, human pincushion, fire-eating, block-head, and fire-breathing skills. His fascination with pain, physics, and human biology has led him down the path of the insane. Of all the Torture Kings you’ve ever seen, Crispy is one class-act that you’re bound to remember!
Some of Mr. Crispy’s Feats:
The act of sword swallowing goes back to 2000 B.C. Mr. Crispy is one of less than a few dozen professional sword swallowers in the world today.
Mr. Crispy has been working with fire since 1999, he is fully insured for fire performance and was a consultant to the Denver Fire Prevention Bureau when they wrote the laws for public fire performance in Denver, Co.
Why should dragons have all the fun? This is the act that started it all. Mr. Crispy started his strange journey into circus and sideshow with a simple desire to learn to blow a fireball to start the bonfire for his annual Easter party. This is still one of his favorite acts and sure to draw a crowd.
Bed of Nails (Combined with audience members standing on Mr. Crispy, Concrete Block Crushed on Chest, etc.)
The Bed of Nails is a classic sideshow stunt, Mr. Crispy has both small portable beds to the a six food coffin on a rolling platform perfect for parades! Have your audience members stand on him, make you closing speech from a living stage, or test your strength swinging the sledgehammer and crushing the concrete block on his chest. These are just a few examples of what can be done and coming soon Mr. Crispy will attempt to have a motorcycle drive across him on the largest of these beds.
Mr. Crispy is one of the few knife throwers with the skill and nerves to perform the classic impalement act. Watch in amazement as knives whiz past his brave assistant and even cuts a celery stick from his assistants mouth.
Wake them up with the sound of a sonic boom. Bullwhips actually break the sound barrier to create their trademark CRACK. Cutting the rose from his assistants mouth and coming only inches from very painful nose-job!
A classic feat of the middle east, Mr. Crispy runs skewers through his body. His control of pain is only half the amazement, Mr. Crispy is able to remove the skewers without spilling a drop of blood. This is far beyond the real of body piercing actually passing through muscle without causing any permanent damage.
