Born and raised in Pembrokeshire, South Wales, ‘Dangerman’ Jonathan Goodwin became obsessed with the world of the superhero at an early age.
As an inquisitive seven-year-old, he discovered the great international daredevil, Harry Houdini, and was enamored by his extraordinary work.
Jonathan too had a taste for danger. As he progressed into his teens, he started to learn the skills of great performers like Houdini and Charles Blondin, who miraculously cheated death while crossing the Niagra Falls on a tightrope. Even at university in Middlesex, Jonathan’s dangerous escapades were his main focus.
Now, as his full-time profession, Jonathan spends every day training for extraordinary performances. But he makes sure to get home for dinner by eight, joining his wife Kay and daughter, Milligan.
Meanwhile, Jonathan’s parents are still waiting for him to get a proper job.
