Murray Molloy’s interest in the macabre spawned from childhood trips to the circus and an eccentric neighbour who taught him magic. At the tender age of eighteen, he took his first steps along the perilous path of self through fire eating. While his blistered tongue was still healing, he constructed his first bed of nails and started performing on the streets of Dublin. After more than ten years of continuous travelling, training and touring he has expanded his repertoire to include stunts which go from contortionism and escapology to balloon modelling, clown and even swallowing swords. He is one of less than fifty artists sufficiently trained to swallow swords currently performing in the world.
