Lady Houdini, the name given to Kristen Johnson by an Inside Edition producer at CBS Studios in New York has definitely stuck. Especially, as she broke the immortal Harry Houdini’s record for the most Water Torture Cell escapes ever performed, which historians and magic aficionados worldwide estimate to be just slightly over one thousand. Johnson broke Houdini’s record last  year as she has successfully performed 1001 public escapes during the Georgia State Fair at the Atlanta speedway.

It is fitting as 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of Houdini’s first public Water Torture Cell escape performance at the Circus Busch in Berlin, Germany on September 21, 1912.
