I was doing the Human Dynamo in the early fifties and Ray Bradbury used it In "Something Wicked," so it's at the very least 60 years old. It's also called Electra (female) and Mr. Electrico, (male)

The Human Balloon was the act done by Jack Donahugh. Man,I spelled that wrong,but it's early in the morning and that's the closest I can come to it. Jack just passed away a few months ago. He would lay down, put a bicycle pump hose in his mouth and have someone start to pump away. His stomach would get hugh. He worked out in Coney Island. Slim may have worked with him. There is a short clip of Jack in the movie Coney Island USA from 1955.
