Yes, Banachek has been working for a long time to get this Las Vegas show. Right before the pandemic his prospective deal with another major strip property fell through, which was so disappointing so this is exciting news.


It's the only reason I'd be going there... That and the Mac King again... I'm sure Banachek's show is incredible and fun. Trying to find the time off time...

Making believe two persons that they might stab you to death for entertainment purposes is not cool. It shows a lack of empathy towards the participants.

Well, ok. I see the point you are trying to make, but I thought it was indeed cool. I found it to be the most engaging part of the show. I didn’t see any of the volunteers opt out of participating or getting squeamish. Seems as if they were confident that Banachek wouldn’t make a bloody mess of it.

Yes, and it's a very topical routine, considering those college kids were stabbed to death in Idaho and the story is dominating the media. smh. Sick.

Agreed. When I went the audience didn’t have an overwhelming sense of dread or terror. In fact they were quite entertained. I surveyed my laymen coworkers after, and most said that was their favorite part. I would hardly accuse Banachek of a lack of empathy when absolutely none of the participants were distressed.

By the point in the show he does this routine, Banachek has proven himself over and over. No one doubted his safety. I would liken it to watching jugglers with swords they’ve proven sharp or flaming pins. You know there is an element of danger, but also that the performer is skilled enough to overcome it.

Having said that, I would hate watching a less skilled performer try it.
