Who

Ig Nobel Prize-winning author, world's leading expert and educational, motivational and inspirational speaker, comedy sword swallower Dan Meyer has garnered international recognition as both an entertaining performer and compelling public speaker for his thought-provoking research on the ancient art of sword swallowing, its dangers, risks and side effects.

A passionate advocate for preserving the ancient art of sword swallowing, Meyer is internationally known for his informative educational lectures, compelling motivational and inspirational talks, penetrating performances, high profile stunts and media appearances around the world.

Performer
As a 35x World Champion Sword Swallower, 7x Guinness World Record™ holder, multiple Ripley's Believe It or Not performer, and the act that wowed the judges on America's Got Talent, Meyer is known for amazing audiences around the world with his flashy cutting edge entertainment by swallowing solid steel blades from 15 to 30 inches long and up to 15 swords AT ONCE!

Branded "Superhuman Man of Steel" by Marvel Comic legend Stan Lee for swallowing a RED-HOT sword on History Channel's "Stan Lee's SuperHumans" , and known around the world for swallowing a 30" sword while submerged 20 feet underwater in a tank of 88 sharks and stingrays for Ripley's Believe It or Not, Meyer is widely recognized as one of the most extreme performers of only a few dozen true sword swallowers left performing around the world today.

Expert
As President of the Sword Swallowers Association Int'l, avid historical researcher and collector of sword swallowing artifacts, and co-author of the award-winning 2 year medical research 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 world's leading expert and foremost authority on the ancient art of sword swallowing.

Speaker
In demand as a featured public speaker, Meyer has been featured in hundreds of scientific studies, documentaries, interviews and articles, as well as speaking at hundreds of corporate, motivational, educational, academic, science, medical and youth events around the world.

How

Meyer presents eye-opening programs to reveal the ins and outs of the secrets of the ancient art of sword swallowing, show x-rays and explain the medical aspects of where the sword really goes in the human body, and describe the near-fatal injuries he and others have sustained in one of the most dangerous occupations in the world.

Meyer explains the ancient history of the art of sword swallowing, explores WHY sword swallowers do it, HOW it is performed, and explains how science and medicine have used sword swallowers for research over the past 150 years since Dr. Adolph Kussmaul enlisted a sword swallower to develop the rigid endoscope in 1868.

And Meyer can perform amazing demonstrations right before your very eyes... a VERY unique and interesting presentation to spice up your next program or event that your audience will NEVER FORGET!

"It was quite incredible to have a sword swallower at a Science Festival...

You really were a star, and
it was something the public and the scientists won't EVER forget!

-Tim O'Brien, VP Ripley's Entertainment

"Dan is one of a kind. He's the Master Professor of Sword Swallowing!
He is a true communicator. He talks to the audience, not at the audience.
I actully heard his inner body make sounds when he swallowed the sword!
My favorite part of Dan's performance is his passion for what he does.
He's never met a stranger and he gets you excited about sword swallowing!
Dan is THE Sword Swallower!"

-Suzie Wiley, Host, WYAM TV, Decatur, AL
