Whether he’s strapped into a straitjacket, suspended upside-down over a bed of spikes with the rope on fire, or a simple handcuff escape, Dai Andrews excels at thrilling audiences the world over, as he brings to life and expands upon many of the feats once performed by the great Houdini.
The highlight of Dai’s escape program is the 100ft. of rope challenge escape. Performed live on stage, two audience members get the chance to tie Dai Andrews up in 100 feet of rope. If he does not free himself in less time than it took them to tie him up they will win up to $1,000 cash on the spot!

All cultures throughout history have produced their own unique artists who push the limits of mind and body. Inevitably the character of their art is strongly affected by the sensibilities and values of the people who invented it. Escape artistry, a uniquely American creation, explores themes of liberation from oppression and the quest for freedom.
The man who invented escape artistry remains the most famous magician of all time. Born one of seven children to immigrant parents, Harry Houdini as he would come to be known, changed the world of performance and spawned numerous successors. More than just a magician, Houdini was renown for constantly pushing his own limits and expanding our vision of what is possible.
