THE world's most famous and strangest puppeteers are heading to The Playhouse Theatre in Weston-super-Mare with their international smash hit show Puppetry of the Penis.
From the West End to Broadway, the boys have stretched themselves to the limit for over a 'dickade' performing the hilarious Ancient Art of Genital Origami and now they are back for more.
Delivering an unforgettable evening of comic brilliance to sell-out performances around the world, this mind-blowing show features two strapping Australians who manipulate their genitals into various shapes, objects and landmarks.
This new show features firm favourites such as the Hamburger, the Wristwatch and the Windsurfer and is guaranteed to tickle parts you never knew you had.
During the performance a video camera projects intimate details of these incredible phenomena onto a large screen ensuring that little can be missed.

Puppetry of the Penis was initially conceived by Simon Morley as the title of a highbrow art calendar, showcasing twelve of his favourite penis installations (known as "Dick Tricks" to the uninformed layperson).
It was on New Year's Eve in 1997, with a garage full of calendars to sell and burgeoning requests for live demonstrations, when Simon finally decided to unleash his talent on the world.
His natural choice of performance partner was David "Friendy" Friend, whose reputation as the life of any party was quickly growing.
Their debut at the 1998 Melbourne International Comedy Festival was a huge hit, kicking off an eight-month tour of Australia.
The national tour covered 20,000 kilometres and was captured in the documentary Tackle Happy.
The show has had extensive runs on Broadway and in the prestigious West End in London and there are now several "Puppetry" troupes touring on three continents amazing and delighting audiences with their comedy and sheer brilliance.
Unlike most modern live comedy, there is no swearing or innuendo in the show, just two guys being really silly with their willys.
The duo have performed in front of hoards of celebrities including Elton John, Bono, Posh and Becks, Jackie and Joan Collins, Jessica Simpson, Hugh Grant, Naomi Campbell and John Travolta to name a few.
They have also done thousands of radio and TV interviews across the planet, including gaining the highest ratings for the year when they performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the UK's "Big Breakfast".
This latest offering will see the boys performing brand new installations whilst utilising the very latest in live computer-generated image projection.
Puppetry of The Penis will be at the Playhouse, Weston-super-Mare, on Thursday 7 November, at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced at £21, Concessions £19, are available on 01934 645 544 or online at http://tinyurl.com/cp7trl6 target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://tinyurl.com/ckzqxvr" target="_blank">http://tinyurl.com/ckzqxvr Puppetry of the Penis is a non-sexual show featuring full frontal male nudity and is suitable for adults aged 18 years and over only.
