I’ve had a ziplock bag of rolls of film in my fridge for over 6 years. Finally we found time to take them in to be developed and find out what was on them. There are not what I expected and sharing these has lead to reconnecting with some old friends who I didn’t even realize I was missing so much.
These images reminded me of experience almost completely forgotten and forced me to ask myself why I remember the specific things I do, and not others. Memory serves the narrative we like best and I’m grateful to have been reminded of that.

As usual, Christmas was crazy. For us entertainers, the holidays are never the normal sort of insanity the rest of the world experiences; with all the stress about gifts, family, and turkey dinners, no. Christmas season is about doing as many gigs as possible without losing one’s mind.
This year proved to be a lot more fun than I expected since I was asked to be part of a dinner theatre production in Edmonton, Fridays and Saturdays for 4 weekends in December.
Our cast was a team of brilliant and talented variety arts performers and improvers. I can’t tell you how incredibly fun it was to play together in this show. I already miss my little circus family but there are rumours that the run might continue in 2013. Here’s hoping.
Note: Fire torch teething refers to a fire-eating stunt which involves using one’s teeth to grip a flaming torch and holding it upright in the mouth without the use of one’s hands. This stunt is considered both dangerous and incredibly difficult. The intense pain from the fire on one’s mouth and teeth plus the inability to breathe throughout the performance of the stunt make this an impressive feat.
The record stood at an impossible 1 minute 32.75 seconds and was achieved by Wendell Gray in Mumbai, India. In training to break his record, I had to work on the trick every day for over a month before flying to Italy in April of 2012 for the chance of a lifetime.
At 7pm Metro News reporter and photographer Glenn Kelly shows up at the door to shoot an image (see above) for the article he’s working on about my recent feature in the 2014 Guinness World Record Book.
Turns out Glenn and I have a few mutual friends and he’s a major nerd, long story short we invited him to games night so if this article is unusually complementary, you’ll know why. Click here to read the full interview.
The wonderful Malcolm Russell found this in the paper and was nice enough to post it for me. I’m so happy that after 8 years working in entertainment, getting my picture in the news paper still feels exactly as thrilling as the very first time.
Also we put together a new fire video that include footage from the shot where the photo from the news paper was taken.
If you are interested in hiring our fire show here are some details, please feel free to contact me for more information:
