British Born daredevil and escape artist Jonathan Goodwin is widely considered one of the most creative, skilled and frankly crazy stunt performers in the world. Goodwin has been hanged, buried alive, hung by his toes from helicopters, burned at the stake, attacked by sharks, and even sewn up inside a dead cow to name just a few of the terrifying and insane stunts his mother wishes he hadn’t tried. Jonathan is an accomplished, knife thrower, archer, escape artist, fakir, martial artist, free diver, free climber, husband and dad. Unlike the other performers in the show, Jonathan is not a magician or illusionist and everything you see him do is very, very real
Jonathan has starred in numerous TV series including “One Way Out” for Discovery Channel and “Dangerman: The Incredible Mr Goodwin” for the BBC. As well as his own Specials, “Deathwish Live” “How Not To Become Sharkbait” and “The Seven Stupidest Things to Escape From” Jonathan has been featured on 60 minutes, and has been a guest on the Jonathan Ross Show, Jimmy Kimmel and Paul O’grady Live.
