    Hey guys, I know this sounds a little strange, but I’m really interested in learning how to do fire-eating/breathing but besides for Coney Island’s “Sideshow school” (which charges $1000!) I couldn’t find anybody in the NYC area that can teach me other than females. All the ones that I tried were females, and I don’t really want to learn from a female, (I want to learn primarily as another shtick for weddings, and I feel if I learn from a female, it’ll be mitzvah haba b’avera lol). My friend said that there are loads of people who do these type of things by weddings, so anybody know anybody that can teach me?

    I think that to breath fire you drink alcohol and then spit/breath on a small flame and it bursts into fire. To eat fire you put the torch in your mouth and breath in. The lack of oxygen suffocates the flame and extinguishes it. Beware! Risk of self-detonation, intoxication and/or transforming into a dragon.

    I am not a fire-eater… although I learned how to do it on TV.

    Why would you eat fire? It doesn’t taste good or have any nutritional value

    No! It is never alcohol, it is usually paraffine or isoparaffine. Some **skilled and experienced** artists add a little bit of alcohol (vodka and similar) so that the liquid does not taste so bad and also it’s more spectacular, as alcohol is volatile (think of the flame on flamboyant dishes or cocktails). But it is dangerous as it increases the chance that flames go in reverse and the liquid inside the mouth might catch fire. Not advisable and absolutely not for a beginner. And of course, only for breathing fire.

    I am surprised you can’t find a male to teach you in the NYC area. Perhaps one of the ladies who would be willing to teach you, can suggest a male?

    hey fire breathing, easy! Exhale in close proximity to fire source and boom there you go fire breathing! Tried and true do it every erev shabbos, works like a charm, add sound effects for a greater show (Ppppu rim, PPppppe sach) 😉
