-Ripley's Believe It or Not

Contortionist Daniel, better known as the Rubberboy, has taken contortion further than any one before.

Daniel is an actor, entertainer, and contortionist.  He is actually the most flexible man alive. He has trained extensively in order to accomplish that. Unlike most contortionists who generally are trained to bend in one direction (back benders or front benders), He is able to bend in all directions. He can bend so far backwards the top of his head can touch the seat of his pants, so far forward he can kiss his own butt. He can dislocate both arms and legs and even turn his torso 180 degrees.

 The Rubberboy has three Guinness World Records for his flexibility. He dislocates his arms to crawl through an unstrung tennis racquet. He performs contortion handstands and unique acrobatics. Daniel crams his body into an 18-gallon box, which is only 13.5 inches x 16 inches x 19.5 inches!! (Your TV is bigger!) He has combined all of his special skills into an amazing and hilarious show. He performs any where from sporting events to concert halls and corporate functions.

He uses his contortion skills combined with his acting ability to conform his body in to any shape. He has experience with creature suit work, motion capture, stunts, commercial and theatrical acting, live performance, and tradeshow presentation.

 If you didn’t catch him performing live at performing at a professional basketball or baseball game, you probably have seen him on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, ESPN’s Sports Center, Oprah Winfrey, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Cirque du Soleil, Best Damn Sports Show Period, The Discovery Channel, Men in Black 2, HBO’s Carnivale, and CSI: NY just to name a few.

Daniel has become the most famous contortionist alive today. From stage to screen no other contortionist has been witnessed by as many audiences!

In a land and time far away, a bouncing baby was born.

OK, OK it wasn’t that long ago (1979) or that far away (Meridian, Mississippi) but a bouncing baby was born. bouncing off the wall in fact. The little boy made of rubber, Daniel had the strangest abilities. He could form his body into any shape! He discovered this at the young age of four when roughhousing with his siblings, he jumped off the bunk bed to land in a split. His father , amazed at his son’s unique gift, collected some photographs of contortionists from the local library to show Daniel. . .

A dream was born, from that moment on Daniel wanted to be a contortionist. But not just any contortionist,
To achieve his goal Daniel traveled many roads. As a teenager Daniel ran away and joined the circus.(no really, he did) later he toured with a traveling sideshow, meditated with a Sufi mystic, and trained with Master Lu Yi in the ancient art of Chinese acrobatics.
