Zoology meets comedy in this lecture on sexuality
This article is from 2010.
A German zoology professor and an Irish comic team up to offer a lecture (complete with slides) on matters sexual, looking at how we compare with the animal kingdom. Great idea, poorly realised. Dr Maggio is everyone’s favourite lecturer – funny, knowledgeable and with a glint in his eye – but the show feels structureless, needs better jokes and more facts. Like an inexperienced lover, this 50-minute show leaves one unsatisfied and asking, ‘was that it?’
