Railed

Giddy up for some horseplay with the cheeky, chiselled men of Head First Acrobats, back at FRINGE WORLD to debut their western themed show Railed.

The Melbourne based lads Cal Harris, Thomas Gorham, Rowan Thomas and newcomer Harley Timmermans spend an hour mucking about on stage like harmless larrikins while achieving some amazing acrobatics.

Oozing charm and charisma, and baring abs you could scrub laundry on, the slick troupe had the crowd riled up with a few astonishing balancing acts, juggling, spins on the cyr wheel, summersaults.

Most of these acts are dotted with poses that draw particular attention to their derriere.

What makes it western themed? The cowboy boots, prop pistols and flanno shirts (which are quickly removed).

The costumes become increasingly revealing as the show goes on until the guys get down to some super short, cut off denim shorts that would make Jessica Simpson in her The Dukes of Hazzard days blush.

There is a hilariously bonkers segment in which two of the guys, one wearing a unicorn mask and the other a horse mask, segue into some strange, sexy territory – but it’s all in good, light-hearted fun.

These guys are a bit rowdy and super cheeky and that is a huge part of their charm.

At the end of the day, this is about a group of hot men flexing their muscles while they show off some impressive circus-y tricks and if that is not enough to entice you then I don’t know what will.

Love the show? Have your say!
