Puppetry of the Penis, Thursday 28th February, Exeter Northcott, 7:30pm

By Jenna Richards

A naive friend accompanied me to see Puppetry of the Penis last week; she howled and writhed in shock when instead of the puppets she’d been expecting two naked men appeared on stage.

Somehow she had managed to pass her 31 years without coming across the art of genital origami. Luckily she’s a good sport and not only did she enjoy the show she went straight home and talked her husband into making the famous burger!

My boyfriend was a little wiser when I arrived home from Exeter Northcott and when I started asking ‘can you make a burger? Sea Anemone? turtle? Hungry bird?’ he spent the next hour cowering in the corner protecting his manhood.

The show began with comedienne Tiffany Stevenson. She filled a highly entertaining 45 minutes and did much more than the man jokes I’d been expecting to please the almost entirely female audience.

Her warm up was perfect and by the time the slightly inebriated oestrogen fuelled crowd had topped up their wine levels in the interval the excitement was intense.

The audience erupted as the caped puppeteers burst on to the stage still hiding their modesty.

We were given the briefest of introductions before the capes were off and the ‘stars of the show’ were revealed in all their glory.

A massive big screen behind the performers made sure even those in the back row didn’t miss any detail of the installations being performed.

As ‘dick-tricks’ began, gasps of shock resonated around the theatre. My friend screamed and repeatedly slapped her knee in disbelief. I really thought we would be watching puppets she giggled.

I have to admit it was hard to comprehend how they did some of those things. Surely it isn’t right to be able to stretch your tackle to your nipple while you imitating playing it like a didgeridoo!

Overall a fantastic show — if you’re female. A perfect, slightly naughty night out with the girls that will leave you with plenty to talk about over a bottle of wine.
