Olympic Comedy–Paul Hunt & his Comedy Gymnastics Routines

Just happened across some amazing gymnastic comedy by Paul Hunt. He was a coach and gymnast in the 1980’s and does some amazing comedy gymnastic routines in drag. In a tutu, Paul manages to perfectly parody a number of female gymnastic stunts, while at the same time doing a lot of amazing gymnastics and acrobatics himself.

I haven’t been able to find out what happened to him (the videos are all from the 1980’s) If somebody out there knows, please comment listed below.

There is a Hunt’s Gymnastics Academy in Utah, but the webpage is currently defunct.

Enjoy these incredible videos (most of which seem to be shot at Gymnastic competitions, and at least a few of these are commented on by professional sports commentators.) It’s very interesting to see the floor routine shot side by side, one in French, and one in English, and how the commentators comment on them.
