Meet Kurt, he's getting ready to get his gear off for Gladdy

WOMEN screaming and nipple grabbing - it's all in a day's work for the blokes from Manpower Australia.

Luckily for Kurt Joseph, the team's MC, he spends most of his time on stage.

Joseph signed up for the job nine months ago, which has taken him to Las Vegas and around the world.

The team will take the stage at the Grand Hotel for their Thunder from Downunder show on March 20.

Despite what many believe, the 28-year-old said the gig is nothing like what you see on Magic Mike.

He says it's better.

While his job is to warm the crowd up, Kurt knows every routine, and gets his time to shine too.

"It's not like they go out and do their own thing... when you think about going to the strippers and they all dance, it's not that," Joseph said.

"This is a fully choreographed show."

But there's times when it doesn't go according to plan.

"When we were doing a show in Chicago and the guys went out into the crowd, a girl decided to latch onto his nipple and didn't let go," he said.

"That was pretty full on... there was some blood shed."

"I'm up on stage for 99% of the time so I don't have to worry about any of that pain."

Joseph, a former Gold Coast resident, said he wouldn't swap his job for anything else.

Being paid to travel, play music and entertain is as good as it gets he thinks.

"You can't put a price on travelling ... This year we're planning of branching out to Europe and Canada which I'm really excited about."

The show will be on Sunday, March 20 at the Harvey Road Tavern.

Tickets are available at harveyroadtavern.com.au for $39.
