Puppetry of the Penis was born when Simon Morley teamed up with fellow puppeteer David 'Friendy' Friend. Their first show at the 1998 Melbourne International Comedy Festival was received as the 'Outright Best Show'. The name Puppetry of the Penis was originally conceived by Simon, as the title of a highbrow art calendar. Released in 1997, the calendar showcased twelve of Simon's favourite penis installations (known as 'Dick Tricks'). Years before, Simon's youngest brother, Justin, had shown him his first installation - 'The Hamburger'. Natural sibling rivalry resulted in the evolution of a grand repertoire of genital gesticulations. After working for many years as a comedy promoter working some of Australia’s funniest people, Simon finally felt he had something just as funny lingering in his pants.
POTP had it's debut at the 1998 Melbourne International Comedy Festival & was a huge hit, kicking off an eight-month tour of Australia. The national tour covered 20,000 kilometres and was been captured in the documentary 'Tackle Happy'.
After an astonishing five-month run at London's Whitehall Theatre Simon and Friendy became the darlings of the West End, delighting London's A-list including Hugh Grant, Naomi Campbell, Elton John, Bono and The Beckhams.
After five years touring the world and successes from The West End to Broadway, it was time for the boys to come home & hang up their capes. In 2005 they launched their 'So Long' tour and prepared to say goodbye. Little did they realize that Australia had not finished with them yet and they subsequently toured Australia extensively throughout 2006 and 2007 doing the 'Res-erection' tour. 2008 continued to expand the reach of PUPPETRY OF THE PENIS, with the first visit to the continent of Africa.
