Stunt Lab


Mark and Jonathan have been flaunting their useless skills for years, and are at the top of the circus/variety arts field, but now they have decided to get seriously scientific about their latest undertaking; breaking a Guinness World Record. Using everyday objects, their quick wit, and years of training, this duo creates unique and unusual tricks and stunts that are sure to please thrill seekers of all ages.

Join this unlikely pair in their laboratory as they prepare themselves mentally and physically to be the best at useless skills no one else would or should attempt in pursuit of “The Greatest Stunt of All Time”.

A world record will be broken every show… We hope.
