I got to see this last night at the Orpheum, and it was AMAZING. It was literary 2 hours of the raunchiest puppets I have ever seen (it blew Crank Yankers and Team America out of the water)… you know you are in for a good show when the opening number is entitled “It Sucks to be Me.”
Topics covered were racism, sex, homosexuality, drinking, violence and everything else that makes up a good show in my eyes. It definitely brought back a lot of memories of watching Sesame Street, Schoolhouse Rock and the Electric Company growing up as kid, but this was much more twisted.
Our favorite number was definitely “The Internet is For Porn,” which had the entire audience dying. You can check it out on Youtube here, but it soooo much better in person.
It is also funny to note there was a couple sitting next to Laura and I who obviously did not enjoy themselves. They sat through the entire first act without uttering a single laugh, and did not return after intermission. I don’t know what they were thinking the show was about… the commercials and ads made it very clear what they were getting into!
