1. Do you 'breathe' fire, 'spit' fire, etc...?

      The only "verb" fire I do is: eat fire. In the past I have done EVERYTHING with fire. But, in your club or college, I only 'eat' it. Watch the video to see EXACTLY what my act looks like. It is scripted, not a word changes.

2. Are you insured?

     Hell yes! Click here to read my insurance.

3. What precautions do you take?

      This will vary slightly, depending on the venue. But, here are the basics: My costume (a suit) is treated with a 'fire-proofing' spray. It is a tailored, 3 piece, men's suit. No feathers, no ruffles, no fringe. The floor is covered with banjo cloth - this cloth is fire retardant (Click here to see the proof) and if I bring my backdrops, they are made of the same materials. There is a fire extinguisher on stage,  in plain sight and 1-2 people offstage with a fire blanket.

4. Have you done this before? Where?
