Man Vs Weird

Image 1 / 7

‘In Man Vs Weird’, comedian Simon Farnaby travels the world meeting people who claim they have superhuman powers. Do they? And can Simon use their powers too? He begins by focusing on superhuman force and meets electric and magnet men in Eastern Europe. He then examines superhuman strength, and visits an Indonesian tribe apparently immune to pain and a Chinese man who can pull a car with his own eye sockets. He then moves on to superhuman minds, where he meets Indonesia's leading shaman, Ngurah Harta, who appears to cut him with a razor without injury. In Romania, Simon wants to know if renowned healer Zinaida can actually make him levitate. Finally he examines the supernatural by returning to the UK to enter the world of suburban psychics, mediums and the paranormal.
