World record holding Canadian magicians

Late to the game, I recently learned that in 2012, Alberta's Carisa Hendrix set a Guinness World Record for “longest duration fire torch teething”, Los Show Dei Record in Rome, Italy!


From Carisa's webstie:
On April 12th in Rome, Italy in front of a live audience I freaked out when I became a Guinness World Record Holder after successfully holding a flaming torch in my mouth for an incredible 2 minutes and 1 second.

By my count, that puts the total of Canadian World Record holding magicians to eight! 
  • Doug The Great:  Heaviest Stilts Mastered.  [Guinness World Record]
  • Scott Hammell:  Highest Suspension Straight Jacket Escape. [Guinness World Record]
  • Lucas Wilson:  Fastest Suspension Straight Jacket Escape. [Guinness World Record - 2011]
  • Carisa Hendrix:  Longest duration fire torch teething. [Guinness World Record - 2012]
  • Michael Francis:  Most one-handed coin rolls in a minute. [Guinness World Record - 2013]
  • Mark Correia:  Longest Amount of Time Wearing a Straitjacket. [World Record - 2014] 
  • The Sentimentalists:  (Chris Mysterion and Steffi Kay) Most items transferred from one mentalist to another.  [World Record - 2017]
