Don't think so. Here we have a simple chemical cell. More
electricity when it's warm, nothing to do with sunlight (except it
heated it up.)

I don't think it's even that much. It seems to be symmetrical, rather
than using disimilar metals in an ordered stack.

The smoke bomb was the terrifying one. Although it's certainly
workable, there's no way I'd heat a saltpeter and sugar mixture either
over an open flame, indoors or without protective kit.

Haven't seen that - but how much by, and how long?

I can drop mine appreciably for a few seconds with careful breath
control. It's a well known technique in India (where they can do it far
better than me!)

Down to nothing - before he walks on glass in Evening of Wonders which
was on E4 last night and probably repeated quite regularly

And no, you're on the wrong track

It's not hard to reduce your radial pulse (as detected at your wrist) by
"hunching" your shoulders down. This compresses the brachial artery on to
the first rib, temporarily occluding the flow. I can cetainly make my
radial pulse disappear completely by this technique. Could he have been
doing this?

No, must be some other trick (someone suggested a rubber ball under the
armpit) . His "assistant" recruited from the audience ('onest guv) as
someone with medical experience taps the pulse rate with a drumstick on
the microphone as it slows down and ceases

He then goes on to walk on some broken glass

A chap I know was talking recently about having been involved in
street theatre. Amongst his routines was walking on glass. As he
explained, anybody who saw him later trying to pick his way
painfully across a pebble beach should have twigged that all was
not what it seemed.

Yeah - I've done hot coals

broken glass, I'm not so sure about
