"America's Got Talent" axes Twin Cities knife throwers
Unafraid of sharp objects: The Danger Committee
This doesn't really come as any gut-wrenching surprise. In a quick email exchange with Committee member (and Brave New Workshop artistic director) Caleb McEwen recently, McEwen pointed out that (despite the Committee's jaw-dropping abilities), he was part of a variety act of the sort that was unlikely to get the final nod in favor of more accessible song-and-dance combos.
Still, it was very cool while it lasted. The Danger Committee got their name out there, and presumably their profile will rise as a result (hire them, for instance, for corporate events and have them fling gauntlets of knives at your boss).
