    I was just curious if any live animals are used in the show. I have a phobia of some animals, mostly reptiles.

    No animals. I have seen it 4 times, a little different every time, but never an animal.

    There was a sock puppet that looked like some sort of an animal when I saw it.

    Awesome show! If you aren't into raunchy humor you won't like it though.

    No animals. The wife and I totally loved this show and the raunchy humor. There were people in the audience that were completely taken back and the looks on their faces were priceless.

    I keep reading about the raunchy humor but the previews I have seen are mostly acrobatics.
    Is the show mostly raunchy humor (which I would thoroughly enjoy :wink2:) or sparsely mixed in?

    The MC between the acts (I forget his name) plays off as a bit of a sleaze, and his "sidekick" (with the puppet) plays off as a sex starved (secretly smart) bubble head...their comedic timing is fantastic and the humor is not for the faint of heart, sounds like you will love it!

    The acts are amazing!

    I have seen it twice

    go on youtube for videos. gazzilionaire is MC and Penny Pibbets was sock puppets. Both went to Australia for the show, but their replacements also got good reviews. Don't know if original gaz and Penny have returned.

    Right! Thanks. Yes. gazillionaire and penny!! I was told I didn't see the original pair but the ones I saw were great. That was June and October 2014. I don't know if they have changed since then.

    I brought a client to the show, and told him in advance it was advertised as Racy, Raunchy, Erotic and Exotic...and it was fabulous. Seeing it again in two trips from now. Don't recall any animals.

    Saw this a few years ago ( as a solo traveler), quite possibly my all time favorite! But not for those easily offended or prudish.

    How was it solo? I am going solo and I feel like it will be a bit awkward, and that I will have a target on my forehead LOL.

    I would respectfully say DON'T go on youtube. It's a lot more fun when you don't know what's coming next and haven't seen/heard the jokes before :)

    Well you'll be sitting next to people so it won't be obvious that you're alone. GO! :)

    Seating is tight... so you won't stick out at all.
