If condoms, masturbation, and interactive sex talk make you uncomfortable, then Grant Busé’s new show is not for you. If you’re up for a solid hour of innuendo, live music and publicly talking about your sex life however, then you’d best book a ticket to see this fantastic stand up show.
Never in my life have I sat in a room of strangers and genuinely wanted to share all my sexual experiences – unfortunately for me they are non-existent. Nonetheless, Grant Busé will share with you the many wonders of the human sex life. In his straight-to-the-point original songs, Busé manages to not only make sex education engaging and funny, but teaches a thing or two to those of us perhaps less experienced. Emphasising consent, enjoyment and experimentation, Busé takes classic sex songs and makes them, well, more about sex.
A special-ed sex education teacher by day, Busé is well-qualified. His wit, charm and genuine openness about sex encourages the audience to participate in a judgement-free and surprisingly relaxed environment. A quirky mix of Tim Minchin and Ed Sheeran, Busé’s musical comedy show is not to be missed. Catchy beats, a theme song that is still stuck in my head today, and a genuinely laugh-out-loud show makes for a great night.
The Birds and the Beats, an intimate show in more ways than one.
The Birds and the Beats is running as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival nightly until 23 April 2017.
Tickets available through the MICF website.
