15 Amazing Fire Eaters
Presented by QSN Fireplaces
Feats that'll set your imagination ablaze...
It's been said that Prometheus stole fire from Zeus himself and delivered it to mankind. But men didn't just settle with a godly gift. Instead, we set out to take fire as our own, to bend it to our will, to master it. The real masters among us — those known as fire eaters — eventually came to breathe fire, almost like gods among men.
1. Using Fire To Protect Animals
In Zagreb, Croatia the animal advocacy group PETA doesn't just make statements, they spew them like an infernal volcano. The target of their wrath is the fur coat. Fortunately, campaign PETA never burns coats while being worn...unlike their infamous paint throwing campaign.
2. Medieval Fire Eating
L'Armee des Maures is a group of entertainers known for their fire eaters. Not only does the troupe make for an impressive presentation, they make it look cool. The picture above is from the annual Joan of Arc festival in Orléans, France.
IGNITE (by FireTrybe) isn't your ordinary corporate function. No punch bowls or awkward conversations here. Instead expect the most colorful fire breathing, flame twirling and object juggling gang of entertainers on this side of the pearly gates.
4. Dwarf Fire Eating
Poobah Terhune is the last of his kind — one member of America's only surviving freak show. After all, a dwarf that breathes fire isn't something you see every day. Even so, you can see it yourself someday by attending the "World of Wonders" whenever the show comes to a city near you.
5. More Like Fire Blower
As you can see, the flame is bigger than the fire eaters' torso. He's obviously very talented. There isn't a single yawn in the audience, and I bet he kept the audience rapt for as long as he performed.
6. Ye Old Fire Eater
This is my first time seeing what looks like dual fire eating, and the black & white picture serves as the perfect backdrop. I couldn't tell you the names of these two men... but do you really need names of those capable of such marvels?
7. Fire Blast
When Shocked and Amazed! By James Taylor hit the bookstores in 2007, the promoters wanted to spread the word. Traditional book signings are boring, and didnâ€˜t fit the concept of the book. Tyler Frye, from the Lucy Daredevil Thrill Show, added the necessary spark.
8. Eating a Lighter?
If he actually ate the lighter that might be kind of cool. Now, if he ate the lighter and then burped a flame bubble that would be real entertainment! This is nothing more than fire eating FAIL.
9. Wedding Fire Eating
Nothing marks the union of two souls like billows of flame erupting from the mouth of an Ati tribesman. The tribe also treated the newlyweds, who were married in the Philippines, to drum-heavy music and traditional dancing.
10. Fire Eating Topless!
Some guys like it hot... really hot. That's where Tia Brodie comes in. Her niche, if we can call it that, is to dance topless while flames dance about her exposed skin and explode from her mouth.
11. Brian Bushwood
Brian Brushwood: fire eater and professional magician. You might recognize him from one of his many appearances on CNN, The Tonight Show or The Food Network. Then again, he wasn't blowing flame clouds during any of those shows.
12. Fire Hat
Fire eating is in Christian Breeden's heart, and he wears his heart on his sleeve... and his head. Breeden is actually a musician that also happens to be a pyromaniac.
13. Leroy the Fire Eater
Pictured above is a fire eater named "Leroy" making Montego Bay, Jamaica a bit more magical. Tourists were treated to grace, poise, and scorching passion.
14. Fire Eating Fail
This is video proof that wind and fire eating don't go well together. The event is a Halloween party being held by Low Fidelity Productions. Don't try this at home kids.
15. Another reason you should never try fire eating at home...
Moral of the video: spitting gasoline at an open flame does not a flame eater make. Guy really lucked out... but I'm sure his friends won't let him forget his stupidity.
