  1. Hi Guys,

    I'm posting this here hoping that there are a large number of you who have a strong sense of adventure!

    I work for a television company called Love Productions and we are making a Channel 4 documentary about the history of stuntmen and daredevils (ie back in the 1800s to today). It is basically going to tell the story of the various stunts that "daredevils" carried out - like "The Great Blondin" who tight-rope walked across the Niagara Falls, Bobby Leach who built himself a barrel to go down Niagara Falls in and Sam Patch who jumped off various buildings and bridges across America.

    We will be visiting the sites of some of the first stunts that took place and will be aiming to re-create some of them.

    We are looking for someone to be the face of the programme, who needs to have a genuine passion in the origins of the extreme sports that they carry out today. They will also need to be prepared to re-create some of the original stunts - which will include the first ever base jump, a tight-rope walk (the length depending on the presenter's capabilities) and the barrel down a waterfall (not the Niagara Falls! - but probably down a 10 metre falls).

    Part of the programme will involve training the presenter (as I doubt they will have experienced all the stunts before, although the more experienced the better!) and testing the equipment etc which we will try and keep authentic to the original gear that was used.

    While we will of course have all the Health and Safety in place, including a stunt co-ordinator we are keen to get someone on board who will try and push the boundaries and will want to give us the most impressive stunts possible.

    If you are interested or know someone that may be I'd be really grateful if you could get back to me ASAP - either message me here, email me: or call me on 0207 067 4838.


  2. I am happy to try the dangerous stunt of shagging an upmarket Prague hooker (female for preference) while simultaneously eating a ginsters and drinking Becherovka and pilsner.

    Or the equally dangerous stunt of sat naked in the living room, wánking myself to oblivion while watching hungarian scat porn and eating cheezy wotsits.

    Sorry, did you want a serious response? Búgger. That will be my taxi outside then.
