Last month Johnny Strange returned to Hungary to perform at the 2017 International Budapest Tattoo Convention.
Once again, returning for the 4th time in as many years, Johnny Strange entertained audiences with death defying acts – even enlisting the help of an audience member to pull a swallowed sword out of his throat.
The audience member who joined him on stage, coincidentally happened to have a tattoo of a sword swallower on her left shoulder!
Last year Johnny Strange took part in a documentary on sword swallowing.
The documentary, filmed by the Russian TV show Hayka 2.0 (which roughly translates into Science 2.0) was filmed at the largest Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! museum in the world, Ripley’s, London. It covered all aspects of sword swallowing including technique, weaponry, and health and safety – with interviews from leading experts in the field, including weapons experts, doctors and of course, Johnny Strange.
Johnny Strange has just come back from Budapest, Hungary, with Eve Elle were they performed a series of shows with the Theatre of Wonder at Lurdy Haz.

Johnny Strange’s Theatre of Wonder recently hit the seaside town of Great Yarmouth. Sword swallowing, fire dancing, the bed of nails, pierced weight lifting, glass eating and much, much more featured in this theatre spectacle.
With the sideshow siren, Eve Elle, making her debut appearance in the show – she performs stunts so dangerous your mother would slap you for even thinking about them and has a fire routine so hot she could make the devil sweat.
She also has nerves of steel as Johnny performed one of his signature stunts and chainsawed an apple in half held in-between her teeth, pictured.
