SHOCKIN’LY SPAIKED O’ER SMOT (BADLY DUBBED PORN) LIVE!

THURSDAY 2 APRIL 9PM
THE MENAGERIE

“Flesh! Flesh! I luve ye, but we hiv anely fowerteen oors to sauf the earth!”

When Emperor Wang, leader of the planet Porno, fires his “Sex-Ray” towards Earth, turning the inhabitants into sex-mad nymphomaniacs, only one man can save the day. Flesh Gordon, with the help of his trusty side kick Professor Flexi-Jerkoff and the beautiful Dale Ardent set off in their Penis-ship to stop the evil Emperor Wang and save the Earth.

Join our resident voiceover artists and dissident Ulster Scot speakers, brothers Roger and Phil McCrackin, and the beautiful Fanny Flood as we deliver to you this cult classic of adult cinema like you’ve never seen it before. An evening of titillation is ensured as this crack team of linguists get to work deciphering the text from the infuriatingly intricate English language in which it was written, translating it for you live into the lyrical and unadorned Ulster Scotch we all know and love.

Two years later....

Was there ever a report on how the evening went? Was a good time had by all? Is there a recording?

Re: Two years later....

hurrah, first comment that's not Russian spam!

no, I don't think that anyone had ever followed up with a report. It was held in a bar and on the whole it all went rather well. With lots of booze, how could it not? I thought that a couple of the readers/translators should have practised a bit more to keep up with the on screen dialogue but the main bloke who was also compering it (??Roger) was very funny, especially when he went off script. Alas I'm not aware of a recording

all in all wile good craic hey, as they say in these here parts

It sounds like a grand time. I'm only sorry I missed it. (But oceans will get in the way, and not learning about it 'til two years later would also be a bit of a problem.)

Has the event been repeated?

Re: Two years later....

oh, and that just reminded that one of the local Fools on the Hill (ie our MLAs) put in a complaint about it beforehand

Although he has not seen Flesh Gordon, Stormont Culture, Arts and Leisure Committee member David McNarry questioned its inclusion in the festival's programme.

"Porn is porn, is porn, is porn - and whether it is done Ulster-Scots-style, well, it really doesn't come into it," said the UUP MLA.

"This event has presumably been given funding and all this kind of thing does is make people look all the harder at an application the next time it comes round.
