  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$350 - $2000 per event
I started swallowing swords at the age of 12 in 1947. I come from a family of sword swallowing entertainers. I hold the world record for being the youngest to do the act, and now I hold the record for being the oldest active sword swallower.

My act is guaranteed to amaze and amuse, but never to frighten, or to be distasteful in any way. I do a family show for the kids of all ages-- belly laughs guaranteed. My shows this last year include a school performance, a large family reunion, and 2 yrs ago I performed in a stage show of "What's My Line" in Hollywood with Ted Lang and others. Ted Lang gave me his autograph with the comment "Great Act"!

I performed on Feb 13, 2009 for a large construction company's safety meeting. The owner of the company kept saying "Amazing, amazing. Then in April I performed for a state sponsored Gifted-children program. The event coordinator, Valerie Brown of Northwest Kansas Educational Service Center, wrote me a nice thank you plus this testimonial:
Jim "Lucky" Ball presents a facinating historical overview of growing up as a part of a traveling show. His pictorial presentation and his inteeresting reminiscences entertain crowds of all ages. When he swallows swords as a grand finale, the crowd is mesmerized. Event coordinators should book Jim "Lucky" Ball for their next big show.
