Where Can I Find a Strongman?

Hi all,

I am a member of a 20-piece burlesque troupe in central Florida. We put on old-style vaudeville shows, with everything from circus acts to skits to stripteases. I want to add a strongman to our repertoire who can do things like, say, shoulder press two scantily-clad women. Someone like these fellows: http://www.sandowplus.co.uk/

How would I go about finding someone of incredible strength in my area? Preferable someone with at least somewhat of a nice physique who is willing to wear a handlebar moustache :slight_smile:

TIA!

This should be a fun thread.

Of course, we’re going to need pics of the scantily clad women in order to better understand your needs. On a purely professional level you understand. ;^)

contact your strongman state chairmen?

…and also leopard-skin, right? No way I would accept a job like this without the leopard-skin attire.

You just dot get offers like this in north eastern Ohio.

good luck finding somebody.

I’m not in FL, but I second going to a comp that’s local or contacting the state chair. You might also post on the Anvil

http://p207.ezboard.com/btheanvil88051

which is a strongman board or

www.powerandbulk.com

which is also a strength oriented board. Just a heads up, wherever you post you may initially be called a troll because it seems too good to be true :slight_smile:

Your group’s myspace page is atrocious.

Not a flame, just tough love…

I just checked out the myspace, seems interesting, haha

More motivation to get stronger!

I hear ya. Really helps you check your priorities.

1). Continue to get stronger.

2). Move down South to capitalize on unsolicited offers to perform feats of strength with scantily clad lady types.

We get paid per show when we perform at clubs and bars.
