Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This week we talk about the unsung heros of film and movies: the stuntman! Yes that’s right, every kindergardener’s dream job, right in between astronaut and cowboy. To help us understand what goes into the death defying and underappreciated work of stunts, we talk to Mike Mayhall, a career stunt performer and coordinator who also just happens to have written and directed his first feature “Jake’s Road” with Eric Roberts, available online and on demand now! Also, Mark E walks us through the Nobility premeire (yes, it finally was premiered, sort of) and everything else he saw at Comikaze on Halloween.
With Hosts Grim Shea and Marke.

We Get To Know the Unknown Stuntman
Actor, Director and Career Stuntman
Director of the FANtastic
And for your nostalgic, listening and singing pleasure…
Well, I’m not the kind to kiss and tell,
But I’ve been seen with Farrah.
I’ve never been with anything less than a nine, so fine.
I’ve been on fire with Sally Field,
Gone fast with a girl named Bo,
But somehow they just don’t end up as mine.
It’s a death defyin’ life I lead,
I take my chances.
I die for a livin’ in the movies and TV.
But the hardest thing I ever do
Is watch my leadin’ ladies
Kiss some other guy while I’m bandagin’ my knee.
I might fall from a tall building,
I might roll a brand new car.
‘Cause I’m the unknown stuntman that made Redford such a star.
I’ve never spent much time in school
But I taught ladies plenty.
It’s true I hire my body out for pay, Hey Hey.
I’ve gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs,
Blown up for Raquel Welch.
But when I wind up in the hay it’s only hay, Hey Hey.
I might jump an open drawbridge,
Or Tarzan from a vine.
‘Cause I’m the unknown stuntman that makes Eastwood look so fine.
