Book Rob Roy
Rob Roy has performed extensively around the world including Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand Canada and USA, appearing on TV, at festivals and on the street and draws on that experience to deliver a show of the highest quality. Rob Roy Collins is one of the UK’s top escape artists. His speciality is taking Houdini’s original and most iconic escapes such as the suspended upside down escape and giving them his own modern twist. Rob has hung from roller coasters, buildings and helicopters (setting a World Record in the process) and has appeared on national television performing his signature escape – from handcuffs and chains but with explosives strapped to the restraints!
Rob’s escapes always bring something unique and different to an event or festival. He can perform on stage, from a helicopter in flight, on the ground, hanging from a cherry picker or any secure, high point. Combining comedy, escapology and acrobatics, there is a perfect blend of laughter, danger and excitement. Improvisation, quick witted wise cracks, and crowd participation leave audiences in amazement and hysterics. This highly polished show has made Rob a favourite among all ages and nationalities.
Upside Down Escape Act
Rob can hang upside down and escape from a regulation straight jacket and 20m of chain and padlocks. This is a real showstopper and can be a highlight of any festival or event, ideal for pre event publicity opportunities, or as an opening or closing act. Rob is a world record holder for the Fastest Upside Down suspended escape from Cling Wrap! The Upside Down Escape Act lasts for approximately 15 minutes.
The Ground Show
Rob can perform his award winning street show either on the ground or on a stage. The show contains the perfect blend of comedy, crowd participation and skill. Rob starts the show with acrobatic handstands on chairs stacked up and ends on a high escaping from handcuffs and 20m of chain on top of a 10 foot ladder. Rob can perform two shows per day, either two of the same or one of each show. Both shows are different from each other. Rob can also tailor his shows and his escapes to fit requirements. The Grown Show lasts for approximately 30 minutes.

Here’s what Rob Roy – Escapologist’s clients said:
We have had Rob over to Ireland three times and he has always done a fantastic job for us. He was hilarious and worked the crowds brilliantly and his escape act brought something completely different to our music festival.
Castlepalooza Music Festival
The launch of our inaugural festival in St. Catharine’s is something we will always remember – thanks to Rob. Throughout the festival up on his ladder, handcuffed and chained, or hanging 100feet in the air from a helicopter, he was a crowd favourite. And on the ground he’s one helluva good person to work with.
St Catharine’s Festival
Thanks so, so much for the show, it was amazing and was one of the best parts of the day. Guests have all been talking about it and it really did make it a wedding with a difference. It was so funny. Seriously thank you, it was brilliant.

That was fantastic – a class act from start to finish. Now tell me how you did it!
A real crowd pleaser
