That was the BEST show we’ve EVER had here!
And your message was even BETTER!
Thanks for coming and sharing your story!”
-Grandma Gee, DuPage County Fair, Wheaton IL
“I just had to come tell you...
I’ve watched your show 12 times in a row now...
It was so POWERFUL, so EMOTIONAL, and so INSPIRATIONAL.
You really touched my heart.
and your words made me cry;
I realized I needed to find my PURPOSE and CALLING.
Thank you for coming to DuPage County Fair!”

I could hardly believe it!”

“I’ve been coming to this fair for over 20 years...
That was the BEST show I’ve EVER SEEN here!
The sword swallowing was AWESOME,
but it was your inspiring message at the end
that really impressed me most!”
-Terry Birsa, McLean County Fair, Bloomington, ILL
“You really have a SPECIAL GIFT,
and I’m not talking about the swords.
The sword swallowing was INCREDIBLE!
But there’s something about you that’s really different that shines through,
and it’s a SPECIAL GIFT of connecting with the audience
and INSPIRING us in a DEEPER WAY.
That’s your real SUPERPOWER!
And that's what impressed me the MOST!
Keep doing what you do!”

"Dan was a wonderful addition to Alaska State Fair 2018,
headlining the full 12-day event.
Every show was PACKED
and people made REPEAT VISITS to see his show!
Dan engaged the crowds with the right mix of HUMOR, TENSION and SKILL, and I saw a recurring theme in the many positive comments we received like this one...
"I thought Dan's show was just about doing a dangerous act
but realized that the real message was about ENCOURAGING each person
to face their own fears and anxieties
and find the strength and faith to rise above them!"
Dan's cheerful OPTIMISM was CONTAGIOUS
and left people SMILING as they walked away.
If you want to add an extremely POSITIVE, UPLIFTING and INSPIRING element to your event, Dan Meyer is your guy!
Plus he was super easy to work with,
always a plus from the perspective of a manager!"
- Suzy Crosby, Entertainment Director, Alaska State Fair
“You were AMAZING!
So ENTERTAINING (I mean INNERTAINING),
FUNNY, and INSPIRING!
I love how you brought out your own personal childhood experiences
to let others know THEY can be ANYTHING they want to be!
You definitely left a huge impression on me and my family!”
- Melanie Anderson, Alaska State Fair, Palmer AK
“I LOVED your SHOW!
I was a nonbeliever until the very end.
But the ending was the BEST part!
It made me cry!
Thank you for coming to the Alaska State Fair!”
- Carry, Alaska State Fair, Palmer, AK
“You made me SQUIRM...
And I NEVER SQUIRM
because I’ve seen everything... I’m a cop!
But you had me SQUIRMING!
I covered my eyes and couldn’t watch!
I was ready to crawl under the bleachers...
But it was GREAT!”
- Rayne, Alaska State Fair, Palmer AK
“We were SO amazed by your talent,
and truly believe you do these amazing feats!
So much appreciate your giving your testimony.
You are AMAZING! Keep up your testimony!”
- Bonnie Dunn, Alaska State Fair, Palmer AK

A big thanks for all the swords you swallowed

Your sword swallowing raised this festival to a HIGHER LEVEL!
It was AMAZING!"
-Jo Pauly, Entertainment Director, Eid al-Adha Festival, Doha, Qatar
"Dan Meyer truly entertains the audience!
He has great rapport with the audience,
He makes them laugh, and delivers a thrilling and intense show.
He leaves them wanting more... which he DELIVERS!
It shows on his face that he's enjoying the performance
just as much as the audience!
Dan is an INCREDIBLE PERFORMER
and he puts on a UNIQUE SHOW with GREAT FLAIR!"
-Johnny Curry, Entertainment Director, American Village, Montevallo, AL
"At first I thought it was going to be fake,
but then when you swallowed real swords,
I couldn't believe they were really real,
and I was just FLABBERGASTED in a state of FLUX!
But it was your message that touched me most!
I love the way you told your story of
overcoming fears to do the impossible.
My grandsons saw your show and it made a huge impact on them too!
Too many kids are bullied these days, and
ALL KIDS NEED to SEE YOUR SHOW and HEAR YOUR STORY!"
-Ron Lopez, Western Idaho Fair, Boise, ID
"Dan's sword swallowing was incredible,
but it was the last two minutes
that hit me the hardest and brought me to tears!
Thank you for challenging me to do the impossible
and giving me the courage to go on!"
-Cheyenne, Salt Lake City UT, Lincoln County Fair, Afton WY
"Dan's performance was just INCREDIBLE,
something NEVER seen at a festival like this before!
Rather than just swallowing swords,
Dan gave a detailed anatomical description
of what was happening inside him when the sword went down.
This made all the difference to the performance!
People were on the edge of their seats,
but too gripped to move!
Gasps rippled through the audience;
Hands were clamped to mouths;
Even the scientists in the audience were shocked,
astounded and amazed, and being scientists, intrigued!
It was FANTASTIC, TRULY AWESOME,
and really made the occasion!
Something none of us will EVER forget!"
-Elaine Snell, Cheltenham Science Festival, Cheltenham, England
"Of all the festivals, this year's Quark Festival was by far the BEST!
But of all the speakers, Dan Meyer was by far, the one that
inspired and impacted students the MOST,
the one they will be talking about for YEARS to come!"
-Anadi Misra, Organizer, Quark 2014, BITS Pilani Goa, India
"Your show was like a breath of FRESH AIR, like LIVING WATER...
You did so much MORE than just tricks,
You showed us so much more,
that we can do whatever we set our minds to,
You touched us in a much deeper way than just tricks!
Thanks for sharing your life and risking yours to make ours better!"
- Clayne Alan, Western Idaho Fair, Boise, ID
