The Prison Sex Show

27 January 2008 · No Comments

Last night I went to the English Theatre Berlin to see ‘The Prison Sex Show.’ With a title like that, how could I go wrong??? The English Theatre Berlin (formally known as the ‘Friends of Italian Opera’) is a cool little theatre that seems to be randomly placed off some random street in Kreutzberg (a district of Berlin). I had been there once before and I will certainly go back again.

From the ETB web-site, the Prison Sex Show was described as ‘… a musical that will stretch the genre of zero-budget science fiction to its limits – and beyond.’ This is an appropriate description of what I experienced. Full of bad double entendre, laughter, and crowd moaning. Worth the 8 Euros I paid, but I am not sure I would have been happy if I had paid 20 Euros.

Here are a couple of examples of the typical humor of this play is shown below. I found these videos on the My English Class web page (my english class is the group that put on the play). Apparently, this is from a previous show (this is NOT from the Prison Sex Show) they did at ETB. These are called ‘Stuart Dee tells two jokes‘ and ‘Jacuinta explains one-night stand ediquette to a German boy.’
