Johnny is a legend! Very entertaining show and a pleasure to deal with.

Gary Fowler, West Yorkshire


Johnny's shows are family friendly and packed with humour, suspense and plenty of audience participation. They are suitable for the young and old, both adults and children, and everyone leaves with a smile of their face.

Johnny's diverse performances can range from 5 to 45 minutes, filled with nonstop, outrageous entertainment. So if you are looking for an entertainer who will stand out and add something totally unique to your event then look no further, because he really does have to be seen to be believed!

Johnny is able to customise his act to suit your event's needs, providing an enjoyable brand of humour coupled with death defying acts of precision that are sure to leave a lasting impression. He also understands that some of his acts, at first, can be perceived as being too shocking, so bearing this in mind, he presents everything in a charming and friendly manner, laced with jokes and designed to entertain and thrill rather than to shock and repulse.
Acts Can Include:

  • Host/ MC
  • Sword Swallowing - swallowing various different swords and can involve audience participation
  • Neon Sword Swallowing - swallowing an illuminated 2000v glass neon tube
  • The Human Blockhead - sliding a pair of scissors and drilling a power drill up his nose and into the centre of his skull
  • Target Whip Cracking - a whip routine with a difference; splitting targets held in his hands, behind his back and even out of the mouth of a brave audience member
  • Feats of Speed - testing the speed of his hand against the reaction time of the steel jaws of a bear trap
  • Razor Blade Swallowing - swallowing a series of razor blades, followed by a length of string before miraculously retrieving them all neatly tied together
  • Pierced Weight Lifting - demonstrating why Guinness World Records gave him the title "The man with ears of steel" by lifting a beer keg off the floor by just the piercings in his ears
  • Chainsaw Juggling - Juggling like you have never seen before, juggling a real running chainsaw!
  • Chainsaw Stunts - one of the stunts that got him featured in the Guinness Book of Records; cutting an apple out of his mouth using a petrol chainsaw... blindfolded
  • Escapology - with the help of 3 audience members he escapes from 60 feet of chains, 5 padlocks and a set of police issue handcuffs... using just a regular hair pin
  • Glass Eating - devouring a generous serving of red wine, followed by the glass it was served in, miraculously remaining unharmed
  • Walking on Broken Glass - carefully walking across a path of broken wine bottles without sustaining injury
  • Fire Eating - elegantly performing multiple fire stunts including; eating fire, brething fire, fire vapors, fire transferes and more
  • Dangerous Balancing Act - balancing a running lawnmower on his face while the audience throw paperballs into the blades. Hey presto, instant confetti!
  • Live Guinness World Record attempt - whether it's for a TV show, an advertising campaign
  • Large Publicity Stunts - promoting a product, event or just offering the WOW factor. Johnny can design a large publicity stunt just for you!

WOW! Johnny was great! He got our guests going with his great performance! get him booked in!

Markus Wilder

Event: Charity
Location: Kent

Johnny was professional yet easy to deal with, from emailing before hand through to the end of his last performance. Each performance was thoroughly enjoyed by our visitors and myself alike, with audience participation and a chance to get close to the action. He's a true showman who is great at what he does. He performed at a family event for us, with age ranges across the board and around 1,000 people in attendance, but I think he would suit any event, venue or audience. We'd love to have him back!

Hi Niki, I would like to pass on a huge thank you from the whole Zeppotron crew and myself! Johnny did a fantastic job and we’re all really happy with how his performance turned-out. It can’t have been easy with all our demands and limitations as to what we wanted him to do in the time limit, but he was very easy to work with, which we are extremely grateful for. I also wanted to say an extra thank you to him for shaving-off his beard for us. I know it wasn’t ideal for him, but we really did appreciate it, as it gave that extra polish to the segment and will end-up looking great in the final edit of the show. I hope Johnny had a good time as well. I know there was a lot of waiting around, but hopefully it wasn’t too boring! Also, I’d like to thank you for all your help booking Johnny. You’ve been very easy to correspond with, which is always a nice bonus with this kind of work! I hope all went well with payment, and we will definitely call on you again if we need any more top notch performers. Don’t hesitate to get back to me with any queries or issues if you have them. Many thanks, Ollie
