Jack Dagger: The King of Fling is a world renowned knife throwing comedian and Living Legend (according to the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame), having performed over 2000 live shows in eight different countries.
Jack was one of People magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. He’s worked with Conan O’Brien (on The Tonight Show), Nicole Kidman, Adam Sandler, Tony Shaloub, David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel. He was featured on History Channel’s ‘More Extreme Marksmen’, all five seasons of TOP SHOT as the world’s most accurate marksman and expert in the field of knife throwing, and ‘Stan Lee’s Superhuman’ performing seemingly impossible feats of accuracy, garnering him the scientifically measured and confirmed title of Superhuman.
Jack has also appeared in Vogue Italia with supermodel Karen Elson, on the MTV Movie Awards, in the Britney Spears “Circus” music video, on Good Day LA, The Learning Channel, and has been featured on both Japanese and Greek television. In a recent interview, Michael J. Bainton (the executive director of the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame) said, “I am continuously amazed by his precision marksmanship and his ability to entertain an audience. He is the most accurate knife thrower in the world at this time, and constantly raises the standards by which other knife throwers are measured in the entertainment field. “Although Jack Dagger has retired from competition, he continues to support the expansion of knife throwing as a fun, safe, confidence-building exercise for the general public. He continues to join me and my students at the Alamo to help raise funds for its preservation. Throughout the day he keeps the crowds in stitches with his quick wit and attention to detail. We could use more people like Jack Dagger.” Jack continues to perform in TV/Film, corporate/trade show environments, Renaissance Faires, Street (Busker) Festivals, and Fringe Festivals all around the world. Originally from Louisiana, Jack now lives in Los Angeles with his beautiful wife Amy, and their son Jack Arthur.
