Eye-watering origami of the genital variety is all on the menu as penis puppeteers Fitchy and Rich take what some men do for fun, and put it out there. Right out there. Once you get past the initial awkwardness of two guys in their birthday suits creating shapes ranging from the ‘hamburger’ to the ‘boomerang’ live and in glorious 3D, you’ll see why Puppetry of the Penis has been a smash hit since Australians Simon Morley and David Friend first unleashed their dick trick repertoire more than a decade ago. More up close and personal than ever before, you even get 3D glasses to wear…
Got questions? Sure you have. Fitchy and Rich give you the lowdown on their frequently asked questions.
What inspires you to create a new dick trick and how do you go about it?
Sometimes you see something and think ‘I can do that!’ and then again sometimes you’ll be shopping and think to yourself ‘hang on! What does this look like!?’ The chicken and the egg really.
Who do you feel your material is aimed at?
It’s for everybody! Half of us have one, the other half is rather curious about them.
Did you ever think you’d make a career out of doing it?
Oh no! Who could ever dream of this! Mind you, think a lot of men dream of traveling the world, getting their penises out for an hour a night, and getting paid for it!
Why do you think men have such a fascination with their penises?
It’s our power source. We keep it hidden, but can’t wait to share it. With it we share some of our most memorable and joyous moments. It’s just always been there for us.
Have you ever had any strange requests from fans?
Too many to mention! No, I will not sign your testicle!
How do you prepare for your shows?
Relax and think of my Nanna.
Which is the hardest trick to get right / the easiest to get wrong?
Hardest – Sea Anemone. Easiest to get wrong – The Hamburger. Got to balance those buns!
Have you ever injured yourselves?
Not from performing the tricks, but an old lady did drop me on my head one night.
