INTERNATIONAL SWORDSWALLOWER & PROFESSIONAL DAREDEVIL
LONDON. EDINURGH. VIENNA. BERLIN. HAMBURG. GENEVEA. MILAN. ROME.
Daredevil & international swordswallower; Snookie Mono (Glasgow, UK) has made a living from playing with fire and running with scissors. Whether he's french-kissing swords, stubbing out big fat Cuban cigars on his tongue, eating flaming torches or simply popping gum whilst crafting balloon poodles; this multi-disciplined artist effortlessly stretches his body to its limits and mixes dangerous stunts with playful, bad boy charm. Originally trained in Fine Art & Illustration, but with a colourful history within nightlife entertainment, he draws upon a 10-year acquisition of skills to deliver stage shows which are rich in chic cinematic imagery, unconventional vintage soundtracks, rock'n'roll flare and, of course, “edge-of-your-seat” thrills. >>
Snookie is one of the rare hundred or so known practitioners in the world taking the ancient and honourable art of swordswallowing to the stage. His desire to push the skill to extremes whilst applying theatricality and effortlessly cool stagecraft makes Snookie an incredibly in-demand artist in the UK and across Europe.
With a signature style like no other, as well as a diverse list of skills (from traditional sideshow to Western and circus), Snookie is a much sought after cabaret performer within the UK and across the globe.

CABARET & VARIETÉ:
Having spent the past 10 years treading the stages of cabaret and variety events, Snookie's streamlined, multi-skill stageshows are polished, edgy pieces of circus sideshow theatre. Creating real, life-threatening stunts with playful, daredevil flare, he carefully paces each spot so your audience will surely be reaching closer to the edge of their seat with each passing minute.
As a rare act; Snookie is not only one of the few swordswallowers in the world. He is also a skilled whip, knife-throwing and fire performer and can perform all manner of sideshow curio classics, including the Ladder of Death (walking up a 5ft ladder of machetes), glass eating, the bed of nails and the human blockhead. He is a fully insured member of Equity with a PLI of up to 10m.
With a love for cinema and a background in Fine Art & Illustration, he does not overlook the importance of aesthetic. Snookie's unconventional soundtracks are expertly hand-picked from his own collection of vintage rock'n'roll records, his suits are always razor sharp and his props always harken back to a bygone era. In this way, Snookie has built a repetoire which is immersive, utterfly unique and will take your audience on a cinematic journey.
