Brockmans Gin recently hosted their international “Press For Gin” campaign, a secret and highly exclusive series of events with world class entertainment and top shelf cocktails.
Johnny Strange and his Theatre of Wonder entertained audiences at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse; Katie Trickett the amazing rubber girl, The Great Baldini and The Human Jukebox were among the line up of headlining entertainers.
Johnny put together a customised stunt on the request of Brockmans, the brief was to incorporate his record breaking sword swallowing with the theme of handcuffs. He did this by performing a unique escape act; swallowing a sword before being securely handcuffed in place with his hands behind his back using a set of police issue handcuffs, in a race against time he then had to pick the handcuffs, using his sense of touch alone, with just a regular hair pin. He had to escape the cuffs before he was able to remove the sword from his throat.
