zMax Dragway is the nicest drag way in the world. Referred to as the Bellagio of drag racing, the track really is amazing. Energemata Poi was hired to give the attendants some special entertainment. Mollie and I arrived in Charlotte on Thursday night ready for an amazing weekend. We meet the other fellow performer- Srikanta Barefoot. Srikanta is a world class entertainer having performed for Cirque Du Soleil!

The weekend was a great success. The weather was unseasonably cold but that was great conditions for the drag racers. As a performer the weather could have been a bit better but nothing was going to stop us! We performed 5 shows and captiaved many racing enthusiasts.

Early Morning Fire in Charlotte

Posted in Fire Breathing, Fire Eating, Shows with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 4, 2011 by jimmycush

It started about 6 AM. Charlotte like any other city likes it’s news with the coffee and that meant that it was going to be an early morning. Fire play is normally a night activity but for special occasions even it will get fired up early.

This morning was a very special occasion. Charlotte Motor Speedway had me come out to do a media tour with the local news stations to promote the upcoming event at Charlotte zMax Dragway on September 16, 17, at which I will be performing.

So here I was getting picked up at 7 to go have some early morning fire fun!

First stop was to FOX Charlotte to do a live performance with Derek James!

Second stop was over to 106.5 The End to record a web video with Woody and Wilcox. This stop was a lot of fun, we hung out at the station and played with some fire. I even got to breath fire over woody and took the liberty of volunteering Melany into some fire play.

Next, we stopped by NBC Charlotte for a live spot during their tail gate party.

By this time I was starving so we grabbed some lunch and headed over to the zMax Dragway to film some footage on the track. This track is the nicest track in the word! Jonathan Coleman and James Nix from the Independent Tribune was there to capture a bit of the fire!

The last stop of the day was to CBS Charlotte. I wanted to make a great impression on Charlotte, so the last show of the day I pulled out the all the big toys! Kristen Miranda put her life on the line, volunteering to help me with a fire stunt!

Finally I was finished! What an amazing day! This day only made me even more excited about the Sept. 15-18 O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Nationals!

From Cribs to Canes

What do you get when you perform 2 shows back to back? You get a 1 year old birthday party followed by a Hawaiian night at the retirement center and the forming of Cribs to Canes!

The kids really enjoyed the fire! The look of excitement from them as I light my poi confirmed my love of performing. The second best part was the questions you get from a 5 year old. “Will you light yourself on fire, does your mom know you do this, can I have a turn?”

The kids (and one brave adult) even had a turn Hooping after a spectacular show by Mollie Hot!

The next stop was The Lodge at Bridgemill. The resident were have a luau party! The event provided live music and an indoor fire/ hooping show!


Water Proof Fire

Despite the forecast, and overcast sky, we bravely ventured into down town Woodstock to perform at the festival. By the grace of God the rain held off, except for a few drizzles which weren’t enough to keep the crowd from watching Jimmy Pyro.

Among the crowds, photographer Jonathan Carter managed to capture a bit of the magic.
