If the only sex education you got during school was a teacher awkwardly placing a condom on a cucumber – then not to worry, these 3 whacky guest teachers are here to make things right… in their own weird way. Their approach to teaching us Year 9’s (the audience) about sex, reminds me of “Tropic Thunder,” in the sense that it carries the same clever satire of war movies –  over-the-top characters on a clear mission to  successfully reach the egg for fertilisation.

Who knew that watching the life and adventures of sperm could be so funny?

The dynamics between this trio is a delight to watch; they’re all strong performers individually, and when they come together, it’s truly hysterical. Unfortunately, the crowd in today seemed unsure of what they had signed up for, definitely making it a tough audience.

In order for you to enjoy the show at it’s fullest, you really need to be on board from the get-go. It’s going to get crazy, absurd and down-right weird. Even though the narrative may be somewhat nonsensical, this is a very well structured show, with perfectly choreographed and timed skits.

The true cherry on this silly sundae, is the sperm dance. Dressed in white latex bodysuits, jumping up and down, dancing whilst also doing bits in between – everything about this gem had me in complete unbridled stitches. Definitely another win, for alternative comedy this Fringe
