Action Hero's Top 5 Tips & Tour Stories

1. We made ‘A Western’ in our living room. It was the first piece we made as Action Hero. Back then I never dreamed that one day we'd be touring it to the other side of the world.

2. If you're going to watch a western film, watch ‘Once Upon A Time In The West’. Trust me, I've seen them all (in the name of research) and that's the best one. Avoid the ones with Kevin Costner.

3. Bristol’s performance scene packs a pretty big punch for a small city. Some of the best work in the UK comes out of there. I'm proud to have adopted it as my hometown.

4. We like to see as much theatre as possible, but we also try to see as many non-theatre events as we can. It’s good to be inspired from outside your artform. Last weekend I went to a massive air show, it was awesome!

5. We performed ‘A Western’ in Texas a couple of years ago. I thought, 'if I never perform this show ever again, I don't mind, because I got to do this’. Texans are one hell of a crowd. I reckon Aussies might give them a run for their money though.

Action Hero perform A Western as part of the Brisbane Festival at the Basement, Metro Arts, until Saturday September 28.
