Published in Comedy. This incarnation features all the favourites like the Eiffel Tower, Lochness Monster, the iconic Hamburger and more as well as brand new installations like Miley Cyrus and Yoda. Here are five reasons to witness this puppetry.
Welcome to the Theatre and Circus: three beautiful fields of wonder, filled with dazzling entertainment and amazing spectacle, set right in the heart of the festival. With nearly acts presenting shows, you can be certain there will be something for everyone to enjoy. High-flying acrobatics, absurd confessions and some very groovy dance routines.
But there is still a middle ground to be found, where there is some entertaining and non-offensive commentary to be had, and sadly the boys of the Vegas version of this particular performance failed to deliver. At the risk of sounding patriotist, the original Australian Puppetry of the Penis boys had this show locked down. It was brilliant, refreshing, hilarious, and became internationally renowned for more than just their ability to bend their bits into shapes for laughs.
Oh, I love it here. We were here last year and it was just the best. A friend of mine had seen the show when it was touring the States, and he bought a little how-to book on how to do the tricks. The next year, I moved to New York, and they were having auditions.
My daughter and I went to see this show and we did not leave disappointed. We loved the uniqueness if the show and felt the 2 guys were extremely entertaining. The opening act was a lady who was also very funny.

But anyone plugged into standup comedy over the last decade also knows him as the desperately foul-mouthed comic with jokes so vivid and foul he makes William Burroughs look like Mitt Romney.
Going where no one has dared to go, "Puppetry of the Penis" at the 42nd St. By now, the premise must be known. After a comically cosmic introduction by Justin Morley, the puppeteers and creators, Simon Morley and David "Friendy" Friend tell us their act began in Australian pubs before progressing to theatres throughout the presumably western world.
Had a few drinks yet? You may want to before taking this review any further, since the Australian-spawned transfer from the Edinburgh Fest more or less demands that you take to the bottle, as well. Squeamish members sorry of the audience may feel slightly queasy after watching a tender part of the anatomy get such an unforgiving workout. Nor need the fairer sex feel left out.
