Puppetry of the Penis: Tackle Happy (2001) Any Australian Metafilterians care to explain this? I found a rave review of this DVD on Amazon.com's Future Bestseller's list. "Organ Origami", "The Fine Art of Genital Manipulation" and "Performances with Road Companies at Major Festivals Throughout The World"? I think the world's citizen's are owed an explanation.

Surely you mean previously dicussed, mcwetboy.

Tackle Happy was directed by the mighty Mick Molloy, an Australian TV and radio comedian of some repute.

I believe I saw these guys on HBO lately. Definitely two Australian guys doing dick tricks. How many can there be?

Too bad about the post police though.

a3matrix: I dunno, Aussies have surprised me before. It may be an entire subculture.

They've relocated their show to the Houseman's downstairs theatre on 42nd between 9th and 10th if any NYC area mefiers have the urge. I hear it's 'scro-tacular!'

They are apparently doing auditions at the moment. A friend of mine went along, did some of the standard tricks (get the DVD to understand) and got asked to fly to Sydney for the final round.

I didn't have any idea that they were as big as they are, but I think they are heading into Chippendale territory (hens nights etc).

Puppetry of the penis is simply two guys doing dick tricks, nothing more, nothing less.

this act is as far away from the defintion of sexual/sensual you can get. Entertaining, yes, but i think people feel more thrilled by being part of a surreal broken taboo act more than the actual "artistry". damn aussies are strange though :p

They were at the Edinburgh Festival. My favourite bit of penis manipulation was "The Hamburger". Try and picture that.
