What's in a man?

World Premiere this Fringe @ BATS Theatre!

Wolverine, Colin 'Pinetree' Meads and Bob Saget are men.

But if we probed them deeper . . . past the adamantium skeleton, the black jersey and the Full House façade . . . what would we find?


What’s in a Man is NOT “The Penis Monologues”, but it is a fringe-tastic comedic, character-based romp through the real ‘man’ experience in all its nut-punching, swearing, macho, confused, silly glory!


Although initially terrified at the thought of looking at their own emotions and foibles to create this production, men: Josh Samuels and Woody Tuhiwai have embraced this manly challenge. “The crux of the show is that each man must confront his fear and his father – just like Luke Skywalker,” says writer and performer Josh Samuels.


So join us on this humorous two-person, rapid-fire sketchfest - deconstructing masculinity, stereotypes and asking the question: what’s in a man?
