Didn't watch it,but hmm...part of the trick is that Brent wears a special conductive suit which covers vital parts of his body,no?
I think he must wear it,becouse when arcs connect with grounded targets :OUCH!
And what if sparks suddenly break out from his nose or face somehow?
Very dangerous trick for sure.

I happened to catch a 1 hour segment on the History
Channel last night (Wed. May 6, 7 PM CDT) called
"Superhuman", which was about people who are ap-
pear to be real life "X-Men". It was hosted by this
guy (can't recall his name, as I am absolutely HOR-
RIBLE at remembering names) who was pretty much
a human "stretch man" himself. He searched out and
interviewed three other people with "unique" talents.
One was a "magneto" man in Malaysia who could
make metal objects stick to himself, as if by magnetic
attraction. The other was an "Iceman" who had truly
amazing tolerance for very cold temperatures. The third
and final one in who we are interested was Brent Turner,
who did the well-known to us trick of sitting on an insu-
lated platform that's connected to a fairly large Tesla
coil and throwing sparks from his finger tips. It went on
to explain how he did it and also warned to no "try this
at home". A check of History Channel's website may
reveal when it will replay?
