The Accidental Pervert is a show that has nine lives or maybe a hundred. Dennis Larkin are TFN NOW! Correspondent had been a little bit obsessed with this sexy little show, hence his penis microphone. So we made a visit to the creators of the Accidental Pervert at the 13th street Repertory Theater.
Called "hilarious" (Broadway World) and "engaging" (TheaterMania), The Accidental Pervert is a laugh-out-loud play that tells the awkwardly poignant story of a boy's journey into manhood after discovering his dad's X-rated video tapes hidden in a bedroom closet. He subsequently develops an addiction to pornography that continues until the age of 26, when he meets his wife to be, and finds himself struggling to find the balance between fantasy and reality.

Let acclaimed performer and comedian Andrew Goffman take you on a whirlwind tour of his funny romance with smut magazines, video vixens, and off-color fantasies while you roll in the aisles. However, it's not all laughs in this layered show, which ends on a touching moment of redemption as he struggles to find true love and perspective through real-life relationships.
