Who is Roslyn Walker?

Roslyn Walker was created by performer, writer and consultant Russel Erwood.

The Walker character is an escape artist and stuntman and is Russel's most famous creation. Over the years Erwood has used this character to recreate Harry Houdini's most technically challenging escape stunts including the suspended straitjacket escape and the world famous Mirror Handcuff Challenge.

Walker broke two world records within the field of escapology and has been voted 6th in the Ten Greatest Escape Artists in History.

Known as the original gentleman escape artist, Walker is often referred to as The Aristocrat of the Sideshow due to his performances having an air of British sophistication and Victorian class despite being performed outdoors. He can often be seen at steam rallies, country fairs and other events throughout the UK performing his one-man travelling show or appearing with his 21st Century Sideshow.
