Renowned as Australia's friendliest comedian, Martin Ralph continues his presence at the cutting edge of corporate comedy talent, successfully completing thousands of personalised conference presentations and a regular international cruise ship headliner. Clean and clever, Martin is a 20 year veteran of the international stand-up comedy circuit.
Most of you will know that Martin's show is ever changing. Not surprising given his Olympic background, that he is always striving for improvement. Over the last 10 years he has developed a show called 'Unbalanced'. This show sees Martin as hilarious as ever presenting his unique stand up comedy based around things that spin. This includes his amazing yoyo routines, using traditional yoyos, high tech yoyos and then manipulating a yoyo that is not even attached to the string!
Martin has developed many new aspects to his show including a cowboy style spinning rope routine, performed while delivering very clever and contemporary stand up comedy. This is a real crowd pleaser.
Being a prolific inventor, Martin has designed and built a gyroscope that can self propel along a string set up to run through or over the audience. This is without a doubt one of the most unique, original and pseudo-scientific routines you will ever see.
And then he finishes the show with a have- to- see- to- believe, exhibition of top spinning.
A rare skill taken to a new level which leaves audiences gob-smacked, Martin has spent years developing and building his own unique props including two of the largest spinning tops in the world.
His larger spinning top is nearly one metre high and is powered up to speed (2200.rpm) with an electric drill, while the top is being balanced in his other hand. Martin has installed over 60 small led globes into this top which when speeding up culminate in a dazzling light display. This is truly the most unique show stopper you and your clients have ever seen.
The fact that Martin is a past Olympic athlete and his subsequent appointment as a Victorian institute of Sport team coach may at first bear little obvious connection to his determination to succeed as a stand up comedian. It does however go a long way to explaining why Martin is now in high demand as a unique motivational speaker. Few exponents actually possess the combination of achievement credentials and outstanding performance skills as either an entertainer or motivator.
