Do not try this at home, these men are trained professionals!
As a long time listener of Martin Molloy on Australian Radio I had often heard of the comedy show, Puppetry of the Penis. So when I saw that this video was in stores, I just had to rush out and hire it.
Basically, Tackle Happy is a documentary, following a two man comedy act around Australia. What makes this movie unique is that the act in question is the two men getting up on stage wearing only hats and capes and manipulating their genitals into a variety of strange and hilarious impressions or "Installations" as they call them.
The Movie follows the duo around Australia in their rusted out old comby van, from Melbourne to Sydney to Brisbane and on around the far northern reaches of Australia all the way over to Perth, in the Australian south-west (a journey of many thousands of miles, through desert and bushfire). It also shows the trouble they encounter with licensing boards and a general reluctance on the part of the media to publicize such an act.
Obviously this movie is not to everyones tastes (to be expected from a movie which is filled with close ups of male genitalia) but if you are prepared to watch it could be quite an enjoyable experience. Watch out for the "Hot Dog", the "Wristwatch", the "Slow Moving Mollusc" and the "Whipper Snipper" (OUCH!) which are my favourite Installations.
If you enjoy genital humour, this is the movie for you. If not, check it out anyway. You may be pleasantly surprised.
