The Kangaroo Kids
Matt Coulter, the Kangaroo Kid, is a world class stuntman from Brisbane, Australia. His stunts are performed on Quad bikes.
He has created many “Guinness Book of Records” records – amongst them jumping 14 4 x 4 Jeeps and 4 moving 4 x 4 Jeeps.
After a four year break from his famous stunt show that made him famous all over the world, The Kangaroo Kid made his comeback to the UK show circuit in 2013. This time bringing with him his Joey (Sam Coulter). The two stunt riders performed at over fifty different events in 2013 & 2014, bringing in record crowds.
Matt has enjoyed working with his son Sam, but Sam has moved on to pastures new, and in 2015 Matt is offering one of his biggest fans the opportunity of a lifetime to be part of his shows and the coming season looks set to be a big Kanga adventure for 29 Year old Paul Hannam. At 15 Paul started working at Keypitts Off Road Centre and spent the next 6 years as a quad instructor. Paul started racing quads at the age of 21, coming 4th three years in a row at the infamous Western Beach Race. In 2011 Paul became South West Enduro Champion and came 3rd in the British Quad Championships.
The act includes stunts using a quad-bike specially fitted with a roll cage and they finish the show with a spectacular jump over anything that is put in their path, be it cars, trucks or tractors (Matt has even jumped a flying aeroplane).
The Kangaroo Kids showmanship captures the crowd and keeps them captivated for the duration of their performance. Using a microphone in his helmet, the Kangaroo Kid keeps the crowd informed with commentary, while displaying incredible skill and agility manoeuvring his selection of quad bikes around the arena.
