The show features two strapping puppeteers who manipulate their genitals into various shapes, objects and landmarks.

Edinburgh’s top-selling comedian Jason Byrne appears at the Arena next Thursday, October 27, with his brand-new show Cirque du Byrne.
It promises to be an anarchy-packed show of acrobatic proportions taking in deviously-constructed comic spectacle, on-stage farce, audience interaction and daring comic stunts.
Jason said: “It seems loads of comedians are starting to wear suits and becoming really successful. I like to be a bit unique so I’ve splashed out on a ringmaster’s outfit for my new show and I’ll be going on tour to make the money back.”
