“It made me crème fraîche my panties”
- audience reviews
Two slightly perverted but naively well-intentioned mutes drag each other through life with only each other's mischievous cruelty to keep them warm. With voyeuristic vaudeville bits, and surrealist non sequitors, John Leo and Jay Dunn marry Beckett's existential bleakness, the Marquis de Sade's power-games, and Keaton's comedic sincerity. Both epic and infinitesimal, these gentleman comrades will laugh you out of your seat while they steal it from under you.
Warning: Violence, Sexiness and Booze will be Goin' On.
Peg-ass-us @ 9:30p with Sophie Nimmannit & John Leo
WINNER! BEST COMEDY, SF FRINGE 2008!
"John and Sophie are the cutest, sweetest, most winsome pair of sexual outlaws in the world, you just want to pet them and cuddle them and take them home and... do evil things to them."-Mistress Matisse, The Stranger
"Heartfelt, Honest, NUDITY. WHAT MORE COULD you want in a fringe show?" Audience Review
A hilariously penetrating look at queer sex for straight folks, complete with sing-a-longs, how-to’s, romance, puppets and soul-baring striptease. John and Sophie have crafted perhaps the silliest, most heartfelt romantic comedy about anal sex imaginable! Their beginner's guide, stuffed with toys and songs, goes off-script with a lover's quarrel that tickles qualms, exposes scruples, liberates desire and comes to a climax where everyone gets off!
**Peg - ass - us contains nudity and sexually explicit content.
