I was challenged to design a balloon owl for a friend of mine, challenge complete 🙂
Lately I’ve been taking my balloon artistry more seriously. I want to get into building more advanced sculptures and designs. As a way of practicing I’ve been having visitors to our apartment challenge me to design a new creation on the spot.
This video is of the incredible Adam Lobo, a fire eating student of mine that is just killing it. When I first created the Fire Eating DVD I never thought I would see anyone flourish like he and a few others have. I really can’t take credit for any of his skill, this is 100% pure star quality.
Here are 3 new stunts to inspire student. Tod Young send me a video of him doing some tricks after just a couple weeks of lessons and I was blow away. I wanted to put some new ideas out there to keep everyone on their toes.
On October 19th, 2012 the Television Show where I set the new world record for “longest duration fire torch teething”, Los Show Dei Record in Rome, Italy FINALLY AIRED.
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.
On April 12th in Rome, Italy in front of a live audience I freaked out when I became a Guinness World Record Holder after successfully holding a flaming torch in my mouth for an incredible 2 minutes and 1 second.
I am super excited to finally be able to share the news with friends after the show aired on Thursday.
