(The easily shocked should have looked away five minutes ago!)
Yes, I said ‘penis’. Yes, this show involves male nudity. And yes, it is all about shock value and morbid curiosity and…
Wait. After a few minutes of gags, the shock value is leaving to be replaced with the thought that we are all far too hung up about nudity in this country. These blokes, they were… naked gasp! They were touching their genitalia horror!
Well, no actually. Firstly, they kept their socks and shoes on grin but trust me there was nothing sexual about this show. It was hugely funny, with a large dollop of “ewww, surely that’s not physically possible!?!” and enough ‘ows’ and knee-crossing squirming to go round the ladies as well as the gents in the audience.
I went to see this for a laugh, and I came out glad to realise that I was pretty open minded. Naked men do not offend me – well, these ones managed not to! My one ‘complaint’ is that there really is a limit to the inventiveness of what a penis, two testes and a scrotum can be made to resemble, and there were moments when my imagination was being stretched even more than… urm, yeah. You get the drift! ;)
Oh, yeah… you might not want to eat KFC after the show. Really.
