Who

Award-winning Ig Nobel Laureate Dan Meyer has garnered international recognition as a performer, public speaker, and expert for his research on the ancient art of sword swallowing, its dangers, risks and side effects. A passionate advocate for preserving the ancient art, Meyer is known for his informative and penetrating live performances, research studies, motivational talks, high profile stunts, and media appearances around the world. With over 250 cruises on Eastern Star Cruise Lines, Admiral Cruises, Carnival, RCCL, Cunard, Holland America, Silja Lines, and other cruise lines, Dan knows cruise ships and the kind of entertainment that cruiseship passengers (and Entertainment Directors) really like!

Performer
As a 5x Guinness World Record™ holder and featured Ripley's Believe It or Not performer, Dan swallows solid steel blades from 15 to 30 inches long and up to 8 swords at once. Known worldwide for swallowing a 30" sword while submerged 20 feet underwater in a tank of sharks and stingrays, Dan is widely recognized as one of the top performers of only a few dozen true sword swallowers left performing around the world today.

Expert
As Executive Director of the Sword Swallowers Association Int'l, avid historical researcher and collector of sword swallowing artifacts, and co-author of a 2 year-long medical study published in the prestigious British Medical Journal that won him the 2007 Ig Nobel Prize in Medicine at Harvard, Dan Meyer is widely recognized as the foremost authority in the world on the ancient art of sword swallowing.

Speaker
In demand as a featured speaker, Dan has been featured in hundreds of documentaries, interviews, articles, and medical/scientific lectures around the world.

How

Dan can present a lecture/presentation to reveal the ins and outs of sword swallowing, show x-rays, and explain the medical aspects of where the sword really goes in the human body, as well as describe the near-fatal injury he sustained while swallowing 5 swords at once.

Dan explains the social history of sword swallowing, explores why sword swallowers do it, and explains how science and medicine have employed sword swallowers for research over the past 150 years since Dr. Adolph Kussmaul enlisted a sword swallower to help develop the rigid endoscope in 1868.

And Dan can perform amazing demonstrations right before your very eyes... a very unique and interesting presentation to spice up your next science or medical program or event!
