Performed before the Queen of England.
Nearly died when an escape trick he was performing for the taping of a television show went awry. He was tied to the tracks of the Desperado rollercoaster at Buffalo Bill's Casino-Resort in Primm, Nevada, with an unoccupied rollercoaster riding on the tracks, when he discovered he couldn't free himself from his bonds.
