As one of only 50 full-time professional sword swallowers in the world, he’ll demonstrate this deadly art with wit, charm and grace. The holy grail of mind-over-body stunts, sword swallowing is an ancient demonstration of the power of the mind and Roderick brings it into the 21st century for discerning audiences to witness.
