How Damian Cage Took Over the Entertainment Capital of the World
Damian Cage’s passion to perform for crowds developed at an early age. Growing up in Mildura, Victoria, a small country town in Australia, he nurtured a dream of becoming a performer. Years later, Damian’s dream came true when he joined Australia’s Thunder from Down Under, an all-male production. For the next seven years, he lived in Las Vegas, toured the world with the show, and made some amazing friends. Damian describes that period as a super-charged confidence-building experience, especially for someone transitioning from a country boy to a big personality.
Damian quickly rose through the ranks in Thunder, landing the lead role in no time. He opened the show and set the tone for the entire night. His powerful performances became the talk of the town, further establishing his reputation and earning him more publicity. At one point, Damian’s face was on 27 advertising billboards around the city, including major ones in places such as the Las Vegas Airport. Their impressive physical shape and great personalities have made the men from Thunder a favorite as guests for television appearances. These include NBC’s Today, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Tyra Banks Show, The View, and the Australian program Today Tonight. They’ve also been featured on the TV show “Las Vegas” and made an appearance on “The Surreal Life.”
In Australia, the hit all-male TV show, Thunder From Down Under is known as, “Manpower Australia,” which is the original name of the group before they reached international success and made an indelible mark in the entertainment industry. However, despite being his launchpad to greatness, Damian wanted more out of his career than just being a celebrated performer. Towards the end of his seven years with Thunder, he went to a lot of other big productions on the Las Vegas strip. Besides the performances, Damian gave more attention to the production itself, met with the technical crews, and noted their lighting and sound software. He also inquired about the fixtures, staging props, and where he could source it all.
With a burning desire to start his own male production team back home, Damian made his move and left Thunder from Down Under at the peak of his career. It was finally time for him to expand his passion and start his entrepreneurial journey. Fully armed with the knowledge and experience he had accumulated from being in the number one production in the entertainment capital of the world, he hit the ground running. Damian worked relentlessly to find a promoter, professionally trained dancers, a venue, and a production team. That’s how he began the next phase of his career with his male production, “Xtreme Xposure.”
The team quickly established a reputation as a must-watch production and started hosting sold-out shows. The team made TV appearances on notable stations and performed to more guests per week than any other male production in the country. Damian hit another milestone when his production was handpicked to walk the red carpet with the Magic Mike cast, including Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello. The production also performed at the Magic Mike XXL premiere in a pre-show performance in front of 7000 excited and loud guests.
Today, Damian and his team still perform at the same venue but have rebranded the production to “Generation Men.” He has also partnered with creative director and choreographer Richard Tanumi and created Oh Là Là Cabaret, an outrageously fun, daring, cheeky, and glamorous dinner and show experience. Damian continues to further establish himself as a show producer, making an enduring impact on the entertainment industry as a whole. There’s no limit to what he’s capable of, and no telling what magnificent experience he’ll provide in the future.
