MARTY COFFEY

Marty’s act is a clever combination of spectacular juggling, fire eating and death defying feats, all wrapped up with non-stop humour. Among his routines is the uproarious apple, bowling ball and egg juggle where he eats the apple during the stunt.

There is the “dangerous objects juggle” atop a two metre unicycle where Marty enlists the help of the audience in getting started. And of course he likes to finish on his now famous chainsaw juggle (sans kittens for the stage act!). With or without cats his deftness for combining hilarious patter, visual surprise gags and tension building stunts always keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. 

Marty Coffey certainly has a sensational approach to comedy basing it around juggling; or a sensational approach to juggling basing it around comedy. 

Whichever way you look at it Marty Coffey has a sensational comedy act.

The Sydney Morning Herald hailed one of her performances, hosted by Qantas in Beijing, as "a diplomatic triumph: Robinson walked into the room and began to sing. Wow. This woman was liquid silver. It is difficult to describe her. Torch singer … cabaret artist … muse … Edith Piaf … When she launched into Mandarin, with, I was told, perfect intonation, you could see the Chinese officials change. They glowed. What had started as an exercise in protocol turned into an Event.
