Stuntman puts body on the line for laughs

CHRIS Martin will put his body on the line tonight for the opening night of Stuntman! The Stage Show.

The show incorporates film and live acting and is about an amateur stuntman and his journey from boy to stuntman.

Director/actor Martin said the show was a stage adaptation of the movie Hot Rod. 

“It’s a comedy,” he said.

“It’s sort of an awkward comedy – I get hurt a lot.”

Stuntman! is on at The Capital today and tomorrow at 8pm.

Tickets are $15 and all proceeds go to the Blue Ball Foundation.

The foundation gives education and support to young adult men and raises awareness about testicular cancer – one of the most common forms of cancer in young men aged 18-39. 

Martin said Stuntman! had a cast of 10 locals.

“We are not a theatre company,” he said. “The show is performed entirely by locals.

“We’re just a bunch of friends who wanted to put on a show and make some people laugh.”
