A one man comedy examining the procreative process from the male perspective, answering such essential questions as “Is your life as you know it really over?” And “Can you safely operate a fax machine/belt sander/breast pump on two hours sleep?” And “Is it really possible to become so obsessed with bowel movements and nipples that you make up little nicknames for them? Like ‘Jerome’? Or ‘Kath’?” Starring a cast of eclectic characters, and featuring Lucas Myers’ hilarious and unique brand of observational humor, this is one lecture you won’t want to miss.
Featuring Original Tunes on ukulele, guitar and miniature keyboard including What If…..?, Nobody Warned Me Bout the Drool, and Yes, Honey, I’d Be More Than Happy To Make Dinner And Hand Wash All These Cloth Diapers As Soon As I Finish Giving You A Foot Rub And Vacuuming The Floor And Walls Again Because You Are Hyper-Paranoid About Germs, Really I Would, No, I'm Not Just Saying That Because I Think Its What You Want to Hear, I Want to Do It, Look, I’m Doing It Right Now, See?
