Logandale, Nevada - 2X World magic award winning escape artist Michael Griffin is urging Clark County Fair & Rodeo attendees and local residents to “think knotty thoughts” when it comes to his first ever Clark County Fair & Rodeo appearances April 10-13. Seen recently on America’s Got Talent, Michael Griffin has issued a challenge for people to come up with impossible escapes for him to attempt during his shows.
The terms of the challenge are simple - if Michael does not make good on his escape from any rational challenge, the person who issued the challenge walks away with $100,000.00 http://www.escapeguy.com/challenges.html
“Sometimes I feel like a gunfighter in the old west, never knowing what’s coming my way, but never being able to let my guard down”, says Griffin.
Griffin has become one of the most interesting escape performers in recent years, not because of what he has done, but what he has not done. Michael's focus on escape is from a viewpoint of being original, and not from rehashing the old escapes of the long gone Houdini. What sets Michael apart is that he is constantly finding new ways to use those restraints to bring freshness and originality, as well as believability to the art of escapology.
About Michael Griffin
Performing astonishing escapes and setting records around the World for over two decades, 2-time World Magic Award Winning Master of Escape, Michael Griffin is considered the Greatest Living Escape Artist. He is the ONLY escape artist to ever survive a hanging on the back of a horse with thirteen-knot Hangman’s Noose in 52 seconds!
What’s the secret? It’s Griffin’s strong mind, conviction, heart and belief. “I do not use drugs or alcohol. I never have and I never will. I simply do not believe in their illusion, nor the illusion of negative thinking which is the toughest strait jacket we will ever face; but, if you put your mind to it, and you believe in yourself, you will always escape”
