Paging Dr. Danger to The History Channel

Great balls of fire!

Posted By on Mon, Oct 21, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Some of you know Gregory E. Carpenter, and others know him as Dr. Danger. The former Tucson resident is in the new History Channel reality show American Daredevils that debuts Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. Check out former Tucson Weekly writer Adam Borowitz's blog post about the time Dr. Danger lit Borowitz and his wife on fire.

I have heard nothing but nice things about Dr. Danger, and him being on the show couldn't happen to a nicer guy. There will be a premiere party at (one of Dr. Danger's favorite Tucson spots) The Buffet Bar & Crock Pot, 538 East Ninth Street. The Facebook event page says the festivities commence at 7 p.m. and there will be free giveaways like Fireball Whiskey, t-shirts, Team Danger daredevil crew autographs and more.


Gregory E. Carpenter, “Dr. Danger,” worked a number of jobs in his past life, but nothing proved exciting enough. “I used to have a real job,” he says. “But I hated it, so I became a daredevil.” For 20 years, this charismatic, quick-witted daredevil has zigzagged his way across the United States in a $300 Suburban hitched to a trailer full of ramps and explosives. Along with his ragtag group of daredevil pirates, Danger earns a living jumping cars, lighting himself on fire and blowing himself up at monster truck rallies, racetracks, county fairs and festivals. He does it all for a couple thousand dollars and the thrills that keep him going from show to show. It’s a dangerous way to make a living, but as Dr. Danger says, “It ain’t killed me yet.”
