As if sword swallowing wasn't challenging enough, try having someone attack the blade with a whip.
That was the extremely dangerous idea behind a crazy stunt attempted by Venice Beach Freakshow stars Morgue and Asia Ray.
In the life-threatening performance, Morgue gobbles a blade that has a board tied on the handle. Then he bends forward at his waist.
Ray takes her whip and attempts to crack it on the board and split it in half.
Of course, if she hits the actual sword, Morgue's innards could end up sliced and diced.
The stunt is one of many that will be seen on an episode of "Freakshow" airing Tuesday night on AMC.
