His name is Rob Sevin and he will spend the day proving that seven of the best known superstitions are super- stupid as part of a new show, The Clairvoyant Chronicles: Dreams, Omens and Superstitions, at the District of Columbia Arts Center in Washington.
Sevin will step on cracks, spill salt, open umbrellas indoors and break mirrors during his performance, in hopes of demonstrating that these activities arent really unlucky.
He will also tempt fate at the end of the one-man show by playing a game of Russian Roulette with three beakers of water and one beaker of hydrochloric acid.
Although hes done the death-defying stunt a couple of times before, Sevin says hes never cursed himself beforehand.
Consequently, Sevins a little worried, but says his wife doesnt mind, adding, Thats what a $5 million life insurance policy will do.
