Acrobatic Sword Swallower

"Every time, Nick is always the talk of our events!"

"He exceeded our expectations. The crowds absolutely loved him!

He is a must book act!"

"I've been performing over 15 years and have seen many  acts, but WOW, your show is absolutely incredible! The best I've seen!" -

Max Random

"I've been amazed! Thanks for the show!" - Richard Urquhart

"Thank you for swallowing swords in photos with the audiences after your shows, people haven't stopped raving about the Human Marvel!

Ross Furman - (Eastport Pirate Festival Committee)

A 60 minute interactive & comedic presentation featuring hypnosis, mentalism (mind-reading), and mind-boggling never before seen sword swallowing feats!
Nick is often asked the same 3 questions:
"Is hypnosis even real?"  "The swords don't collapse?"  "But mind-reading is fake, isn't it?"

Journey inside your mind and onward into Nick's.
Gut-wrenching comedy one moment, metaphors of life and death the next.

Every show has a finale!
In this one, a willing audience member is hypnotized and swallows the final sword of the show! Skipping years of practice, it only takes 30 seconds and it's safely over.
Proof hypnosis is powerfully real!
It's a brand knew routine you have to attend to experience!

America's Only Acrobatic Sword Swallower!

He understands the importance of appropriate entertainment and will work hand-in-hand with you to get it right. Always perfecting his craft, Nick decided to study acting from the best,

2-time Academy Award winner Dustin Hoffman. Nick once stated that what he learned from Dustin helped him better understand entertainment and grow as a performer.

You could put that responsibility into hands less-capable than this five-time World record holding sword swallower with hundreds of standing ovations in his resumé , but we wouldn’t recommend it!
