Penises will literally jump from the screen when iconic comedy act Puppetry of the Penis unleashes its world first live 3D comedy show on Australian audiences from February to May 2012.

As the show entered its second dickade, Puppetry brainchildren and grandmasters Simon Morley and David Friend worked with Australia’s premier film and TV post production specialist Digital Pictures to incorporate the latest 3D and CGI technology used by the team behind James Cameron’s blockbuster Avatar into their new show Puppetry of the Penis 3D.

This technology will bring to life the ancient Australian art of genital origami as it’s never been seen before, with a 3D camera capturing each ‘dick trick’ being performed live and projecting it onto a large screen in real time for the audience who will be given 3D glasses.

“For years we’ve been joking that our next show should be in 3D. However, when we considered Puppetry has performed to more than 10 million people worldwide since 1998 and today’s audience expects something new, we started to explore the idea seriously,” said Puppetry of the Penis Creator Simon Morley.

“We invested in the best technology to create a technically cutting-edge and outrageously funny live 3D show. We’ll bring to audiences larger than life images so real you could almost reach out and cop a feel, even from the cheap seats!”

“The new show was a hit in the UK and we can’t wait to bring it to our stomping ground.”

Puppetry of the Penis 3D will feature strapping lads Sam Lyons and Greg ‘Nacho’ Chivers, who have been the Australian Puppetry performers since 2009 when Morley and Friend hung up their capes and retired. They will manipulate their genitals into various shapes, objects and landmarks, including crowd favourites the Eiffel Tower, the Windsurfer and the Hamburger along with some surprising new material.

Advanced computer generated imagery will also be used to place some of the ‘tricks’ in their rightful environment on the screen – for example The Lochness Monster will appear in a Scottish Loch.

Puppetry of the Penis premiered at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 1998 to great critical acclaim. An eight month sell-out tour of Australia followed. Since then they’ve taken the West End by storm twice and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for eight consecutive years and played in five different languages and in 30 different countries.

Never far from controversy, the Puppetry team recently launched a 3D APP which global giant Apple refused to sell. The team returned fire by giving its fans instructions on how to jail break their iPhones and install the APP.

Warning: Puppetry of the Penis 3D is an adults-only, non-sexual show featuring fullfrontal male nudity. This performance is strictly 18+ only.
