He swallows swords! He eats fire! He’s been on TV, in movies, and in The National Enquirer! He’s set Guinness World Records that nobody wants to break, he’s 7’3”, he’s a master of the sideshow arts, and he’s coming to Fresno for the Rogue Festival(this isn’t technically a Rogue show, but it is taking place in the same area as Rogue at the same time)!
