New Delhi: This January, Jonathan Goodwin will hang from the London Eye using only a burning rope. Part Houdini and part superman, Mr. Goodwin will even fight his way to the surface after being bitten by a venomous snake and then being buried underground. Certainly, impossible is merely a challenge for this new breed of escapologist and professional danger-man as he puts himself in the most extreme situations and dodges death every time.
Emulating his childhood heroes – the great American sideshow acts and comic book characters – Mr. Goodwin will perform baffling stunts around the UK and the US. Taking the viewer behind-the-scenes to share the emotions of his family and friends as they watch him tackle terrifying feats, The Incredible Mr Goodwin sets a prime example of out-of-this-world bravery, agility and physical strength. The series will also chart the extraordinary preparation and training Mr. Goodwin endures before his performances.
Share the tension and excitement as he attempts spectacular feats of out-of-this-world bravery, agility and physical strength. These include racing to unlock himself from a rocket-launched car before it drags him off a 200-foot cliff and fighting to the surface after being buried underground – after first being bitten by a venomous snake. He also free-climbs up a towering office block and attempts an incredible headline-making stunt hanging by a burning rope from the iconic London Eye!
