What do you guys think of the Belgian, Aaron Crow? Like? Dislike? Reasons....?

Examples, if you don't know:

I think he's pretty good and a little different to what I've seen before! Would be good to see more of him here, I think.

Having seen Aaron on TV and at Blackpool recently, I can confirm that he's a consummate showman, his crossbow act is really well done - even if it did go slightly wrong at Blackpool!

Difficult to say more than that as he doesn't seem to get the exposure in the UK to form in depth opinions - what are your thoughts about him?

Yes it's a shame he's not so well known here, I think he has something about him - personally I like his candle and sword act; it would be good to see more of the same! From Aaron certainly, from others too... :)
I wasn't at Blackpool - what happened?

When he was spinning on the turntable and fired at the apple on the spec's head... well he didn't hit her or anything but to many of those in the front stalls it was rather obvious as to what was happening, he sort of exposed the method unintentionally. It was still an incredibly entertaining performance!

Is there any real danger to the spectator if the trick went wrong or is that just an illusion? I don't want to know the method of course.

No danger at all, it was all illusion and presentation. Aaron's style is almost self mocking, he appears as a tough martial arts type of person but with the odd raised eyebrow and smile indicates that he's just having a laugh and is not to be taken too seriously. In The Ruskin afterwards he was happy to chat and share jokes with everyone so was rated as a 'very decent geezer' by all those who met him!
