What to expect from Rob Roy Collins

Rob’s regular (irregular?!) street show features acrobatic tricks, audience interaction and some jaw dropping escapes from handcuffs, chains, padlocks and straitjackets.

“We hired Rob to perform a series of escapology stunts for us, including recreating Houdini’s famous strait jacket escape whilst hanging from a rollercoaster! He also performed at a press, media and celebrity event that was held to mark our season launch and the feedback from our guests was phenomenal. His performances were breathtaking and added a real wow factor – he even managed to get a few of the celebs in the strait jacket!”
