I've added karaoke and firebreathing to my linkedin skills.

None of the recruiters or companies that contact me ever have questions on any of these topics. Is anyone actually reading stuff on linkedin profiles?

What do you expect? When making first contact with a potential employee, personal interests and non-work related skills are irrelevant.

Sometimes, if you land an interview, they might ask you about your personal interests, but those are usually broad questions that you can answer with whichever hobby you prefer. I doubt anybody is ever going to say "I've seen karaoke written in your CV, tell me more about that".
