If you saw Steve Bedwell perform this stunt on his video "MD not required", I just wanted to say that I just saw a famous US girl pornstar do the same stunt on a US TV show. Except that she did it for real !...

Recently one my cleints told me they saw a performer swallow 260 balloons. They could not remember the performer's name.

Oh, thank you for correcting me. I did mean 260 size balloons. But I forgot to put the word "size" in the sentence because I was very sleepy at 1:37 at night.

For the most part this thread is in the wrong place.


But to answer your question the porn star didn't do it for real.

And I don't know of any real sword swallowers that actually swallow a 260.

I do the balloon swallow. It always goes over great! In fact so many people talk about it after the show and I always think of it as a filler. But, they wasy I get into it and out of it is pretty funny, so I guess it really works.

The technique is tipped on Tomas Medina's Geek Magic DVD.

This is NOT sideshow! This is magic.

Brett,
It is possible that someone did that for real. I knew some women that...well, let us just leave it that it might be possible.

I guess the deciding detail is, did she pull it back out?

I saw the video...Yes she did.
I thought she was doing the traditional method, then she pulled it back out intact.
I was indeed impressed.

Since the two more current sources are listed, Fielding West is credited with the [gimmicked] idea on Bedwell's video, and I believe Linda Lovelace for the non-gaffed version on her video, but I know very little that I will admit about that particular genre.

The tomas video is the only good video that I have seen on the market. Tomas is a friend of mine and highly Recomend it. That is the version that I do in my act.

Second the Tomas video. Loved his tic tac in the eye bit as well.
Next time you see him, tell him I appreciate him putting it out on the market. We had a blast just watching it, and I have been doing a lot of the stuff off of it (Razor blades without the silly wallet) in walkaround bar situations.
Good stuff!
