These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating in between scenes

they banter with the crowd and perform their hilarious twist on improv sketches.

They sing, they “dance”. These guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh.

Come and see the explosion of ridiculousness that was a smash hit at the Adelaide Fringe in Australia

and has recently been selling out theaters all over Canada and the US.
