Watch out! BALLS OF STEEL AUSTRALIA is back for a second series and once again nobody is safe!
Hosted by The Chaser’s Craig Reucassel, the first series of BALLS OF STEEL AUSTRALIA premiered on The Comedy Channel in April 2011 and was the channel’s highest rating series EVER! The second series returns to our screens with some familiar faces and crazy new characters.
Based on a British format, BALLS OF STEEL AUSTRALIA sees guest comedians and comedy characters performing stupid, dangerous and ill-advised stunts on the general public in an attempt to impress a studio audience and to lay claim to the title of having the biggest “balls of steel”.
New cast members include iconic TV personality Baby John Burgess, who makes his television comeback as the game show host from hell. Joining him for a first season is the vertically challenged comedian Imaan, playing the explosive role of “Short Tempered”, professional lunatic duo Steve Bradley and Jeffrey Antonio in studio as “The Misfits Stunt Crew”, and UK import Olivia Lee, a popular cast member from the UK version.
Returning favourites include Rhys Nicholson as confused gay newbie “Just Come Out”, Ally Pinnock as the boyfriend hunting “Bunny Boiler”, Nazeem Hussein as the earnest investigative reporter “Very Foreign Correspondent” and popular British cast member and public-aggravator Neg Dupree.
Unfortunately, one of the most popular characters, “Nude Girl”, was not able to take part in the second series. By way of compensation, producers have introduced “Nude Twins” (Bea Hampson and Cassie Gotardo).
BALLS OF STEEL AUSTRALIA is a 10-part series produced by Southern Star Entertainment’s Courtney Gibson and Johnny Lowry.
