Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Johnny Fox (born 1953 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is a professional sword swallower and sleight of hand expert. Fox grew up in Hartford, Connecticut, and saw his first sword swallower at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Massachusetts, when he was eight or nine years old. At approximately the same age, his father gave him a book about Harry Houdini that inspired Fox-substituting spaghetti-to recreate the magician's trick of swallowing a key on a string and then regurgitating it. Fox began performing magic and comedy while working as a waiter in Saint Petersburg, Florida. He learned sleight-of-hand in the 1970s from Tony Slydini, an Italian magician known as "the Master of Misdirection."show more
