About Michael Griffin.......
Seriously, what if you knew nothing could hold you?
If your Michael Griffin, America’s Escape Hero you would travel the World setting escape records defying anyone to keep you prisoner while offering to the World $100,000.00 to anyone who can keep you prisoner.
You would become the only 2 Time Winner of TV’s World Magic Awards for Best Escape Artist and star in numerous TV Shows such as Ripley’s Believe It Or Not calling you “Ultimate Escape Artist” even venerable news outlet CNN would say “Simply Incredible”.
So what makes Michael Griffin, America’s Escape Hero so different in a World of Same?
Originality – Michael is the only performer in the World that combines his “intensely original magic and impossible escapes, featuring almost 100% audience interaction and the chance that at any performance someone could actually win the $100,000.00 challenge”.
Dazzling and breathtaking as a performer, Michael takes supreme escapes to the extreme challenge in many forms including escaping water-filled sealed oil drums, the most complex police restraints and even mental hospitals. One of his most interesting on-stage challenges is an 1880’s Navy Sea bag, most notably called “the cloth coffin”.
Forget typical straitjackets, handcuffs and ropes – Griffin has taken passé escape concepts to an escalated level – into a new realm of risk in the art of escapology. What ordinarily would be a well-known handcuff escape Griffin adds the suffocating dare of having to escape from them inside a heavy airtight canvas sack, which is the most original escape today. Even the U.S. Government hasn’t been able to hold him in a real Postal Mailbag locked on the outside by a high security Government lock!
Griffin has also added his own twists to dangerous non-escapes, including the East Indian Needle Mystery – a jaw-dropping challenge in which he swallows 40 needles separate of some thread, having his mouth proved empty then, regurgitating the needles threaded along the entire eight-foot length.
What’s the secret? It’s Griffin’s strong mind, conviction, heart and belief system setting apart this distinguished performer from all others. “I do not use drugs or alcohol. I never have and I never will. I simply do not believe in their illusion, nor the illusion of negative thinking which is the toughest strait jacket we will ever face; but, if you put your mind to it, and you believe in yourself, you will always escape,” –Michael Griffin.
