Fred and Gimmel, Stuntmen/Stuntwomen Run-on

jump suits, bandages, casts, braces, stunt materials (weights, knives, sheets, glass of water, dummy, board, plaster hand)

Fred, Gimmel

Each week these famous two stuntmen (Fred and Gimmel) enter to Kick Start My Heart by Motley Crue, screaming and dancing around.

They yell to the crowd, "Are we an acne pimple?

They coach the crowd to yell back "NO!"

"Are we Bryant Gumbel?" (NO!)

"We are…Fred Gimmel!" They scream again.

They are stuntmen from camp to perform for the kids. Each week they attempt a stunt, Gimmel injures a body part and flails on the floor and yells, "Tape it, you gotta tape it!" While his partner Fred jumps in front and shuns the crowd "No, I will not tape it! I will not let you go o! It’s over! The stunt is over!"

The leader tells them it is over and to get off the stage. Each week when they come back Gimmel is more bandaged up until by the last week he has a neck brace, leg wrap, and a backboard.

Stunts include: lifting 1500lbs. (Gimmel tears his colon-he gets a semicolon!); juggling knives (cuts his tongue); parachuting into a glass of water (dummy off the roof); karate chopping a board (smash plaster hand). The last club Gimmel can save the leader’s life.
