Amazing facts-Rubberboy

Rubberboy
Contortionist Daniel Browning Smith, known world-wide as ‘Rubberboy,’ is the most flexible man in the world, and a 5-time Guinness World Record holder. Browning’s Guinness feats include ‘The Fastest Time Getting INTO a Locked Straitjacket’ in 2 minutes and 8 seconds with 13 feet of steel chain and ‘Most Number of Contortions in a Box’ for 2 minutes and 14 seconds with a total of 3 contortions.

Pushing the envelope to the max, the 135 pound and 5 foot 8 inch Rubberboy performs near-impossible feats of handstands, acrobatics, 180 degree torso twisting, escape artistry, dislocating his arms and hips to crawl through an unstrung tennis racket or a toilet seat, and warping his body to squeeze inside a 13.5 by 16 by 19.5 inch trunk with an 18 gallon capacity — which he coins as enterology (getting into confined spaces).

amazing-factsDaniel Browning Smith discovered his natural ability for flexibility at an early age, and literally ran away to join the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus in Florida in May of 1998, selling all of his worldly belongings. He began training extensively in order to expand his limits and bend his body in unimaginable techniques, studying at the San Francisco School of Circus Arts to train under Master Lu Yi.


Daniel went from there to achieve his Guinness World Record for his De-Escape feat on ‘Guinness World Record Primetime’ in which he gets into a locked straitjacket, chains himself up, and then crams himself into an 18 inch by 16 inch box. He has traveled world-wide with his jaw-dropping performances, appeared in documentaries for Discovery Channel, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, more than 100 TV appearances including CSI for the Blood, Sweat and Tears episode, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and movies such as Men in Black.
