I caught Spikey, the Bed o’ nails artist’s act in Covent Garden and thought his hair a great visual pun for his act. When he told me how he maintained it, pulling it up into spikes with liquid soap in front of an arrangement of mirrors in his bathroom that gave him a 360 degree view, and then painting it in acrylics, I marvelled he had any hair left at all! The high spot of Spikey’s act came right at the end when a member of the audience was invited to stand on a chair as the artist lay on a bed of nails and had another inverted on top of him. The punter was then helped to step on top. OUCH!
