5 Questions is a series by Steve Duffy –
Ladies leave your men at home and join the irresistible blokes from down under for a night of guilty pleasures and sizzling dance moves.
SD: What is the role of the MC?
DY: It is my job to prepare the ladies for the show and to also entertain them while the guys are changing. I try to make it light-hearted and fun. I also try to throw some comedy in. It is really a fun job to have [he laughs]. What bloke wouldn’t want hundreds of girls screaming at them?
SD: How did you get involved with the show?
DY: In 2012, I was auditioning for a show and one of the scouts spotted me and asked me if I would like to perform with Thunder. It was my first time being a part of a male revue show. It is really a great time and I love performing with the group.
SD: How much rehearsing goes into creating a show?
DY: There is lots of rehearsing every day. We spend a lot of time coming up with new routines that are fun for us and especially fun for the audience. Plus, we spend a lot of time in the gym and we have a very strict diet.
SD: What is the craziest thing that has happened to you while performing?
DY: I will have to leave that to the imagination of your readers.
SD: How do movies like “Magic Mike” help your show?
DY: It has definitely helped our show! It is like free advertising. It really brings the male revue show to the forefront in a positive way. We are true entertainers and we all take pride in what we do. Our show has a more cabaret feel to it than any other male revue show the audience has seen before. We keep it very intimate with a lot of audience interaction. It really makes for a great girls’ night out.
