He's delightful, both as a person, and as a performer.

I can count on less than one hand, how many escape artists, these days, are interesting. He's the top of the list, and several other positions in the top five.

Th stunt he started with on tonight's show is one of his signatures.

Saw the show last night. Very good. The one thing I like about him (and hate about others) is his lack of pride. He has a sense of humility that is very endearing, especially when he is doing something he has never done before or can't make an escape. I didn't know what to expect as the trailers for the show made him out to be slightly "I'm-ever-so-English-and-better-than-you".... but we all know that Ken runs THAT gamut too well.

I hadn't heard of him before the commercials, but I like the premise of the series.

I saw him on Jimmy Kimmel and thought he was off the wall. That's good. I missed his show though.
Some are born idiots.

Some are made idiots.

Some have idiocy thrust upon them.

Now, Ken, it sounds as if you haven't had your tea and crumpets today. You mustn't miss your schedule.

Watched it; loved it.
He's kind of like "the Crocodile Hunter meets the Mythbusters."
I like the way he mixes 'traditional' escape gear with makeshift arrangements.
The way he literally abuses himself to set up an escape will probably come back to haunt him physically, if he reaches old age, but he's definitely entertaining and different.
And, yes, he has an endearing modest quality that sets him apart from the more narcissistic & egocentric performers.

The first episode didn't meet the expectations I had from the commercial, but the second one did! The escape upside down with his head in the bucket was really good.

Crap! I missed it. That sounds very much like something I was working on last year; I would've liked to have seen what he did with it.

Danny did it at the Blackpool Convention last year.

Stephon, it was a straightjacket escape while upside down and his head was in a plastic bin full of water, the lid around his neck like stocks. Nobody mentioned the ice escape? I'm sure they will replay the episodes all week long.

Sorry, Ken..... we all know what you want to hear so I'll give it to ya.

There, I said it. Now finish your tea and find some crumpet fer chrissakes!!

No,,Im too old for all this and in my day TV paid coppers.

Just like to see people (Entertainers) Treated right and giving credit to the inventors,,,costs nothing to do the right thing. But meens a lot to those who put the work in.

Yeah, but you never know what he may have said that got edited out because it was considered "boring". He never claimed authorship on the stunts.
