Jack Dagger made his Fred Hall Show debut in 2011. Now, after a short hiatus, he is back for a return engagement at the 2018 shows. Jack Dagger has always been extremely popular with the show audience. If you haven’t seen him you need to put some time aside at the shows to catch a Jack Dagger performance.
Jack Dagger: The King of Fling is a world-renowned knife-throwing comedian. Jack has been inducted into the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame, won several World Championships and has invented the first new knife throwing stunt in almost a hundred years. It’s called, “The Jack Knife-Cucumber Slice”. Jack performed this trick on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. He is also credited with the invention of “the Knife Catch”, “Tomahawk Catch”, “ and the “Unicorn Catch”.
Jack grew up in Louisiana where, at a young age, his back yard hobby was throwing screwdrivers. He eventually obtained his first throwing knife and his gifted career began to take off.
The King of Fling was recognized by People magazine in 2008 as one of the “Sexiest Men Alive” (In Sexiest A-Z, as “K” for Knife Thrower). He worked on “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan” with Adam Sandler, “Monk” with Tony Shaloub, and “Bones” with David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel. He was featured on the History Channel’s “More Extreme Marksmen”, and “Top Shot” season 1 and 2 as the world’s most accurate marksman and expert in the field of knife throwing.
Jack has appeared in Vogue Italia, on the MTV Awards, in the Britney Spears “Circus” music video, on theLearning Channel, and has been featured on both Japanese and Greek TV.
Michael J. Bainton, the Executive Director of the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame, said, “I am continuously amazed by his precision marksmanship and his ability to entertain an audience. He is the most accurate knife thrower in the world at this time, and constantly raises the standards by which other knife throwers are measured in the entertainment field”.

Jack will be performing two shows daily on the Cousins Seminar stage at Long Beach and Del Mar and at the Kern County Pavilion sponsored by Coors Light at the Bakersfield Show.
