TWO North-East pantomime legends will be bringing death-defying stunts to the Tyne Valley later this year.

Danny Adams and Clive Webb have been performing in the Theatre Royal’s annual pantomime in Newcastle since 2005.

Danny also stars in CBBC’s hit slapstick show, Danny and Mick. The trio will be bringing their Cirque Du Hilarious show to Brockbushes near Corbridge in August.

As part of the show, Danny will be performing the notoriously dangerous milk churn escape. The stunt was made famous by the legendary Harry Houdini.

It will require him to hold his breath underwater for up to two minutes, whilst escaping shackles and climbing out of a large milk churn. Only last month, magician Chanchal Lahiri died attempting a similar trick in India.

However, Danny will take on the stunt in every show between August 6 and August 10. The trio’s tour follows on from shows in Tynemouth last year.

Danny said: “We have got a lot of new fans since the CBBC Danny and Mick series began. There will be a lot of new faces in the audience who haven’t seen us perform live before. We’re really looking forward to showing them just what we can do.”
