Boobs — A Tale of Two Titties

"Boobs" – A Tale of Two Titties Lantern Church Gym Saturday 8:30

With a title like this it’s no surprise the show seemed particularly well attended at least the evening I went. It definitely lives up to its title — plenty of raunchy coarse humour about "boobs." (The main refrain in the show’s opening song for example is "I love you little tits"…)

The show is made up of several stand-alone sketches with "boobs" as the unifying theme. As such it seems a bit disjointed at first as the lights are always up-and-down up-and-down… To be frank I was ready to rip into this show for its stupidity and vulgar humour that seems particularly suited to the young male. (I mean really a young man seeking help from a support group because he’s still drinking his mother’s "tit juice" ….??) HOWEVER HOWEVER…. My opinion of the show changed COMPLETELY with one of the cast member’s revelations near the end.

I don’t want to give it away but suddenly the entire show made sense and I went from loathing it to loving it raunchy humour and all. And I no longer felt ashamed of the few laughs that had managed to escape me even as I had been shaking my head and "tut-tutting" the whole thing.

Now I say if you’re a woman go see this show but make sure to stick around to the end. You’ll be glad you did.
