Hi my name is Marcelo de Ramos also known as Marcelo the Daredevil.
I Work as a specialist stuntman for Stage and T.V and now I want to put my stunts to good use by raising money for “Charity” . I’m famous for somersaulting over cars, diving through hoops of razor Sharpe knives and somersaulting over a row of people. I can also dislocate my neck without it breaking. I’ve been doing death defying stunts for since 1981.
It all started when I was I child in Brazil, I was very poor and many times didn’t even have enough food to eat or clothes to put on. I often shared one plate of food with my mum and 2 Sisters that was kindly given by our neighbors. Growing up, I also remember all of my Christmas’s and Birthday’s, but not because they were particular happy times but the fact that I didn’t receive any presents.
At the age of 7 I became the man of the house by selling scrap metal, mangoes and fried fish to help buy food and clothes for my mum and 2 sisters. I‘d always been fascinated with performing artists and so at the aged of 11, I persuaded my mum and the owner of a small traveling circus to take me with him on his next tour. I learned physical comedy, some acrobatics and some other Circus skills. This helped my Family so much financially and our life seemed to improve from that point, but for me, I had this burning desire to do something greater with my life and so in 1987 at the age of 17, I joined the “Brazilian National Circus”
I trained there for 3 years and during those 3 years there were time a thought I might have to give it all up, not because of the training schedule (I was a hard worker!) because of the travel costs going backwards and forwards everyday on the bus. The owner of the school kindly let me sleep on the premises when I didn’t have enough money to return home, which as you can imagine was more often than not. I trained hard for 3 years and became a Professional Performer in 1990. My Family were so proud of me and all of my achievements. I began working professionally in Brazil in Big tops and T.V and then had the opportunity to leave Brazil and travel around the world creating my own stunts. My Skills of somersaulting over cars, has given me the opportunity to work with 3 major car manufactures, Jaguar, BMW and Volvo. And I’ve also been given to opportunity to be one of the warm up Acts for the world famous band the Rolling stones in the UK tour Bridges to Babylon.
T.V in the U.K
I’ve been involved in many TV programs including; “Combat Club” Channel 5 Played a Capoeira master,
“The Virgin Queen” BBC1 2006, Played the Purple Jester alongside Anne-Marie Duff (Shameless), Tom Hardy and Sienna Guillory.
I’ve been in two commercials one for Carlsberg World Cup in 2006 and the other for Morgan Spice in 2007.
At the beginning of 2007 I impressed “Harvey goldsmith” in a Variety performance for the Channel 4 show “Get Your Act Together”. Performed on “Let me Entertain You” with “Brian Conley” BBC2.
He was one of the strangers on the program Identity with “Donny Osmond” BBC2.
He even managed to impress “Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent ITV1 ITV2.
and His photograph was used nation wide to promote the Show in many News papers
I’ll be filming for 2 more big programs later on this year; one for channel 4 & Science of attraction ITV1.
I was a success story, but you must realise that not all deprived children stories have happy ending, a lot end in tragedy. We can do something to help! I’m was born in a 3rd world country, but don’t be fooled into thinking that because children are born and live in the uk always have enough food to eat, warm shelter and a happy home.
