The King of Fling
Jack Dagger: The King of Fling is a world renowned knife throwing comedian. He has been inducted into the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame as a Living Legend, won several World Championships, and has invented the first new knife throwing stunt in almost a hundred years: The Jack Knife - Cucumber Slice (as Seen on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien).
The King of Fling was recognized by People magazine in 2008 as one of the Sexiest Men Alive (in Sexiest A-Z, as "K for Knife Thrower"). He worked on Paddington Bear with Nicole Kidman, You Don't Mess with the Zohan with Adam Sandler, Monk with Tony Shaloub, and BONES with David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel. He was featured on History channel's More Extreme Marksmen, Stan Lee's Superhuman, and all five TOP SHOT Seasons as the world's most accurate marksman and expert in the field of knife throwing.
Jack has appeared in Vogue Italia, on the MTV Music Awards, in the Britney Spears "Circus" music video, on 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 recently joined me and my students at the Alamo to help raise funds for its preservation. Throughout the day he kept the crowds in stitches with his quick wit and attention to detail. We could use more people like Jack Dagger."
Originally from Louisiana, Jack now lives in Los Angeles with his beautiful wife Amy, and they're infant son Jack Arthur.*
