Down Under The Thunder From Down Under

Matthew Fardell should probably have ended up working on his parents' NSW farm after finishing high school.

Instead, he studied human movement at university and has spent the past six years working as a stripper for Australian dance troupe Thunder from Down Under in Las Vegas.

"Being up on stage with my clothes off was so foreign to me," said Fardell, 32, originally from Trundle in rural NSW, of his earlier days with the all-male troupe.

"I grew up on a farm and it was just something you knew people did but it was nothing I'd ever have thought of doing."

A normal week for Fardell includes 12 live shows at the Excalibur Hotel Las Vegas. Each show runs for 75 minutes, starting at 7pm daily and 10pm daily.

"The whole casino industry is an art," he said. "They pump oxygen into the casino to keep you awake.

[ Judging by fan reaction, they obviously they don't do it in the Thunder From Down Under theatre - Ed ]
