Hatherleigh Festival 2006

'Skate Naked'

This comedy duo appeared in the Marquee at 6.30pm and at 8pm on Saturday to entertain a huge crowd with a series of hilarious items based loosely on acrobatics (which is more than be said for their thongs!)

First of all - you take off your trousers!
Next, you get friendly with the natives
The you get even more friendly with the natives
Then you get down ... er, up ... to business

Then you put on a surgical glove and blow it up from the INSIDE ...

(Kids, do NOT try this at home!)

... and your partner helps you take it off by lighting the end with a flame.

(Kids, definitely do not try this at home!)

Of course, then you have to put the flame out using a convenient appliance!

(Adult males - do not try this anywhere ... except perhaps at Hatherleigh Festival after a few pints!)

Ingeniously leaving their finale to the end, Skate Naked did handstands, on bricks, on stands ... but with a difference.
Ever seen a more unusual use for sparklers?

Congratulations to Skate Naked for enthralling a very big audience. In fact, it was so big that unless you were in the marquee you probably did not hear the patter from the lads, or even see some of the performance. A mic system would help next time.
