Cy The Sword Swallower - Sword Swallower - Tustin, California Event Location: Los Angeles, CA Event Type: Private Party 15th June 2019
Cyrus was a hit at my party, some of my guests claimed he was the best ever! He was professional, funny, and put on a very intense show. I was pleased and so was my husband. My husband thought he was the best entertainer that I have had by far. Cyrus was on time, set up with in minutes, and he is extremely talented. I highly recommend Cyrus for your private parties, celebrations, and or work related activities.

Huge passion for martial arts involving weapons. Though I'm quite the pacifist I still learn how to use these weapons and are entertained by them in an artistic, presentational way. This ultimately lead to me performing the feats I do (Sword Swallowing, Knife Throwing, Machete Juggling, Whip Cracking, Crossbows
