Slavisa Pajkic is in the Guinness World Records for his talents manipulating electricity
Serbia’s ‘Battery Man’ – who can withstand 20,000 volts of electricity in one hit and can heat a cup to 97 degrees Celsius - is set to showcase his unique talents at the Cirque Le Soir night club in Dubai this month.
Slavisa Pajkic, who is listed in the Guinness World Records for heating a cup of water to 97 degrees Celsius in just over 90 seconds, describes himself "electricity’s only friend, an insulator, conductor, accumulator and heater."
While normal people feel uncomfortable with electricity of more than 50 volts, Battery Man has set a record for taking 20,000 in one go.
It is not the first time Dubai club Cirque Le Soir has brought outlandish acts to the city, in August it attracted headlines when the world’s most pierced man, Germany’s Rolf Buccholz, was booked to appear at the club but was refused entry by authorities upon arrival at Dubai airport.
Battery Man will appear at Cirque Le Soir at the Fairmont Hotel on Friday, November 21.
