Well, the subject title says it all. I'm looking for personal instruction (and it goes without saying: COMPETENT AND RESPONSIBLE) instruction in sword swallowing.

Any leads would be appreciated.

Doc, I thought that you went that route already. I've heard stories about buckets, backyards, and ruined clothing.


P.S.--I'd talk to Todd or Harley.<Homonym-related pun-type joke about the choice of whether to live or die deleted.>

P.P.S.--Having a mermaid in your show would be much safer and definitely more hygenic...

That might be true, but where are you going to find a sword-swallowing mermaid?

Harley's workshop was terrific and taught us the basics of sword swallowing. Mark made the most progress, really nothing short of amazing in three days.

Since you're in PA why don't you head on out to the Sideshow Gathering in Wilkes-Barre? It also has the Sword Swallowers Convention going on simultaneously and you'll no doubt be able to get some tips from those of us who do it (and do it well). It's September 1st-4th so you won't even have to wait very long. Check out: for the rest of the info.

Doc, we talked about this a few months ago. I've called you back a couple of times since. We should talk.

And I want to know who's actually goling to swallow a mermaid. Swords be ***ed, they've been done so many times!

It was great to see Matt the Knife, Facade, Johnny Mayhem, Keith Nelson, Red Stuart, Travis Fessler, and all the other great sword swallowers and performers this past weekend at the Sideshow Gathering! Thanks to everyone for helping us break the world record! Harley, Todd, and others - We missed you! To the rest of you who missed it... YOU MISSED IT! Smile

For a breakdown of the sword swallowing records set, go to:

All the best,

Anytime we get together like that we always have a blast! And it's always such a pleasure to see you drop some sword as well.

Speaking of which, for those of you that didn't catch it Dan even bested his own personal record by putting down 7... THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID SEVEN... swords at once.

And by the way, it's great to have you as a new member to the Café! (For those of you that don't know Dan he's one of the founders of the Sword Swallowers Association International... )

I certainly hope to see you posting here more regularly as time goes by.
