Action, adventure, sci-fi hilarity, it all happens upon this incredible journey from testicle to ovum. It all starts in a year nine classroom, where the teachers don’t really know what to say about the awkward subject of sex. It is time to take a look into a microscope and see the 300 million sperm on their way to fulfill their sacred purpose. Privates A3 Poster CutWe get to know a few of these sperms; especially Timmy, Darnell, and Jason. Will they accomplish their mission? Or will they get blocked by a prophylactic? Obviously one must go to see the show to find out, but I can guarantee you all proper laughter as you go.

Overall, Privates: A Sperm Odyssey was on the silly side of highly enjoyable. These three lively lads from Brighton perform absolute magic with an overhead projector, laundry baskets, and sheets. They also show a decent knack for physical comedy, while displaying some pretty neat choreography. The show was a little too loose at time, especially since they had a good run in Brighton earlier this year. The scenes broke too easily, & although a little bit of laughing at yourself can be welcoming, for me it happened a tad too much and distracted me from the enjoyment of the experience. But saying that, the lads are certainly talented performers, and their efforts are well worth the 5 pounds donation.
