Not for the faint-hearted (or kids for that matter) the Puppetry Of The Penis is on once again in the Garden Of Unearthly Delights- 27th Feb- 18th March. It continues to be one of Australia’s greatest theatrical exports and has now played to most of the Western World. It has been hosted in over 35 countries and performed in 6 languages.
With a big clue in the name- the shows consist of 2 near naked men (they wear shoes) manipulate their nether regions using the Ancient Art of Genital Origami, providing the audience with a hilarious array of shapes and impersonations which will be projected onto a huge video screen.
It will feature all of your favourites, including the Eiffel Tower, the Lochness Monster, the Pelican and of course, the iconic Hamburger, but will also include a host of new installations, such as Miley Cyrus, Yoda, and the Kardashian, that promise to rock you into hilarious fits of laughter.
This is a non-sexual show and does contain full frontal male nudity.
Warning: This show contains traces of nuts.
1) It’s educational. Normally when someone gets close to a man’s flaccid genitalia, it becomes something very different, very quickly. This is your chance to look at them 3 stories high and see what men do whilst all alone with their appendage.
2) It’s liberating. To laugh out loud at a man’s penis can be a very dangerous thing – unless you’re gunning to crush some spirits. We encourage you to let it go (no spirit-crushing here), laugh out loud, and celebrate what is without a doubt the oddest-looking piece of human anatomy.
3) Frighten your friends. This is your chance to scare the daylights out of your most prudish friends. Wait till they see the hamburger! They scream at the screen, whilst you watch them.
4) Bond with Nana. It might have been a while since your Gran or Nana has seen one of these, so get her out of the house for a night she will never forget.
5) And lastly, this show is for men too. It is commonly thought that this is a show for women. While it has proven more popular with women this show was born in male sporting change rooms. Nothing sexual, not gay, just primitive male art.
So head down for a good giggle and good night at the Adelaide Fringe to see this hilarious show – click here for tickets.
