Puppetry of the Penis, Twin Towns, Saturday

Puppetry of the Penis is back with a brand-new show, and this time in  3D! You can watch the boys manipulate their members live on stage while getting the 3D experience from the giant screen.

For the last dickade Puppetry of the Penis has broken all box office records worldwide.The new show will be utilising the latest 3D projection technology with the audience given 3D glasses to wear, experience the astonishing and unforgettable ancient Australian art of genital origami in this head-shaking, outrageously funny production as it’s never been seen before.

As of today most of the western world has played host to Puppetry of the Penis including Australia, UK, USA, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Iceland, Norway, Spain, France, Denmark, Argentina, Mexico, South Africa and Switzerland, and it has been performed in climates ranging from 45 degrees to minus 35 degrees.

Puppetry of the Penis was born when Simon Morley teamed up with fellow puppeteer David ‘Friendy’ Friend. Their first show at the 1998 Melbourne International Comedy Festival was received as the ‘Outright Best Show’.

The name Puppetry of the Penis was originally conceived by Simon, as the title of a highbrow art calendar. Released in 1997, the calendar showcased twelve of Simon’s favourite penis installations (known as Dick Tricks). Years before, Simon’s youngest brother, Justin, had shown him his first installation – ‘The Hamburger’. Natural sibling rivalry resulted in the evolution of a grand repertoire of genital gesticulations. After working for many years as a comedy promoter working with some of Australia’s funniest people, Simon finally felt he had something just as funny lingering in his pants.

You can see the results of their inventive labour this Saturday at Twin Towns.
