Reviews for 'Slutmonster and Friends'
Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2013 – Golden Gibbo nomination
Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012 – Highly Commended in Comedy
The Age – ★ ★ ★ ★
Blending songs, animation, puppetry and performance, this playfully perverse pantomime for grown-ups is both an intelligent commentary on colonial attitudes towards race and sexuality, and a provocative, sex-positive comedy. Crude, crass and very funny, Slutmonster and Friends is highly recommended.
Slutmonster is gross-out porn of the highest quality, and dammit if you don’t just swallow your gag reflex and wade through this festering delight of a show.
When Slutmonster And Friends ends and the house lights come up, you truly feel like you have awoken from a dream. As I scanned the audience’s faces (a full house who had laughed and clapped and shrieked and gasped through the entire show) they too seemed to have that what-the-hell-did-I-just-see look. But not in a bad way at all. Kind of like the dazed look I assume one might get after you realise you’ve just had the best sex of your life…with a Teletubby.
I have never seen anything quite like Slutmonster and Friends before and I think it will be a long time before I do again. It’s a great show when the worst thing is that it has to end. I overheard one audience member say this at the end of the show and I wholeheartedly agree with their statement: “Genius. Just genius.”
This show is as depraved and wrong as anything can be, but made with an intelligence that leaves it’s audiences making sounds that they usually keep hidden.

This so, so wrong and so, so funny Brothers Grimm porno musical with puppets, animation and a remarkably refined aesthetic was Highly Commended in the 2012 Melbourne Fringe Awards, and rightly so.

It certainly won’t appeal to the prudish but if you like your humour on the perverted side, you’ll be gagging for more.
