All acts come with 2 Bouncing Stilts Walkers unless specified othewise in the act description
These big bouncing b-boy breakers and their beat blasting boom box are sure to bring out the funk in everyone. Whether bouncing around in their massive high tops to their sound system, or teaching peeps their secret handshake, they bring high-energy fun for all. With bouncing stilts and bouncing wits, they’re both visual and interactive.
The Hungry Chefs
These cheery, chubby chaps are bounding around on big bouncing stilts, using their super sensitive sense of smell to sniff out a new rare delicacy! If you’re lucky they’ll tenderise your shoulders for you with a nice little massage, season you with their giant black crack pepper grinder and garnish you with a little twig of parsley from their mobile herb selection.
A dynamic act, it boasts strong characters with fast witted improvised comedy, and a big bounding visual impact for your event space. Perfect for food markets.
With barnacle beards, big bouncy boots, and bright yellow suits, these seafaring fisherman are a spectacular site at any event. Always struggling with their land-legs, they can be seen bouncing up to 4ft high in the air as they try to recreate the homely, comfy sensation of sea sickness. They have many tails of the high sea to tell, offering witty, improvised comedy interactions. With bouncing stilts and bouncing wits, they’re both visual and intimate, perfect for any seaside event.
These bustling old mother hens fuss about giving chocolate gifts and cuddles to the little chicklings, sharing old wives tales with the ladies and hen pecking the men!
Bopping around like busy bees, these unique, larger than life hens are a beautiful edition to any seasonal event. A warm but cheeky 2 or 3 person comedy act that provides intimate, family interactions and big visual impact.
Performers: 2 or 3 ground performers
Sizing up a Christmas crowd is a big job, so Santa has sent out his biggest helpers Horace and Boris to take notes. How do you measure up – Naughty or Nice? They’ll be bouncing around deciding who deserves a visit from the boss man.
Bouncing stilts will have them leaping around up to 4ft high and 6ft long!
Giant kangaroos on amazing bouncing stilts? That’s Roo’d! Jumping a metre off the ground and 6ft in a bound, they’re a phenomenal sight with their cheeky blend of outback macho and inner city punk savvy — always Roo’d but never offensive.
A great stilt act that really stands, or bounces, out in the crowd with an ability to be cheeky, funny and cuddly all at the same time.
Sharks beware! BEACH PATROL are ready to rescue. Marvel at their mouth to mouth! Be dazzled by their daring drills! You’ll need CPR after these moustachioed musclemen have bared their biceps while diverting danger. Swim outside the flags at your own peril.
Need to keep a crowd in line? Don’t panic: leave it to the bungling BOUNCERS. These boys are proof that in this industry, size matters — but not if you’re talking brains.
Icarus Cricketers and Cricket Umpires have appeared at Test Matches, One Day Games and the Cricket World Cup games at the SCG as well as 20/20 games at the MCG and in the UK. Great fun in a large pre game crowd, especially when they get a BIG game going.
Be the captain and pick your team – we can customise the costumes to suit any team or nation you like!
Tennis Anyone? Giant Tennis has appeared at many Australian Opens and Sydney Internationals. Always a smash hit, and at 8ft tall, definitely overhead. Move over Murray and co, there are bigger stars on the circuit. Beware grunting and tantrums!
Performers: 2 Bouncing Stilts Walkers
They run, they jump, they pass footy’s and boy are they tough! These big bungling lads have been seen starting scrums at pre match entertainment, family fun days, and Grand Final week festivities.

‘These absurdly athletic characters have represented their countries at the London Olympic and Melbourne Commonwealth Games, FINA World Swimming Championships and a host of other events, winning GOLD! GOLD! GOLD! ……and its not hard to see why. What bodies! What Moustaches! What Posers!
Be the captain and pick your team – we can customise the costumes to suit any team/nation you like!’
These old world Circus Strongmen are great for any event with a Circus or Carnival theme. Super strong, massive moustaches, enormous egos and perfect poses…these lads have it all.
Was it really this bad? Well maybe there is a little bit of artistic license taken, then again, maybe not. Inspired by ONJ herself, minus the leg warmers. Our fluoro fitness fanatics are a must for any 80’ themed party.
