All parents owe it to their children to come see The Accidental Pervert. Rarely does theater make such a strong argument in favor of open honest communication about sex.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
In the last month, over 20 sexperts and relationship therapists have come to see The Accidental Pervert. As a result of a unique promotion by writer and star, Andrew Goffman, some of New York's finest and brightest counselors have joined the audience of this revealing off-Broadway comedy.
Writer and star of the one-man show, Andrew Goffman, came up with the promotion when thinking about some of the more serious aspects of the play. He says, "Although the play is a comedy, it's also the story of my life, and I want people to come with me on that journey, to laugh with me, and to see the seriousness as well."
At the beginning of the play, Goffman portrays his adolescent self - a boy who is addicted to pornography and sex. He says, "I start in a difficult place, but it allows me to use humor to show people how life can be difficult, and yet through strength and determination, people can change. The great thing is, people can come with me on that journey with a lot of laughs."
Jonathan Alpert is a sex and relationship therapist, and author of "Be Fearless - Change Your Life in 28 Days". Had this to say after seeing the show: "Thanks for being such a fearless Perv and making it into such a fun and exciting show!"
Goffman says he would like to extend the invitation to Christmas, so that any therapists who work in the field of sex and relationships can come and see The Accidental Pervert as his special guest. He's also keen to meet therapists after the show to give them a chance to talk to him, and discuss the play. He says, "Laughs are important, in fact, this play is a comedy, but I really want to let people into the world of The Accidental Pervert, and therapists deal with these issues every day."
Dr. Sara Nasserzadeh is a sex therapist and co-author of "The Orgasm Answer Guide", had this to say about the play: "The Accidental Pervert is an engaging show which makes you laugh in the theatre and think afterwards. For a one-man show, Andrew Goffman is truly talented. He walks the audience through the story of how porn shaped his view of women and sex in general and how he was conflicted when the reality of life hit."
Dr Sara was impressed by how he was able to cover a serious issue in a comedy format, she says, "I respect Andrew's bravery for revealing his life to all. I am sure he knows that this could easily be the story of many men out there whose first ever exposure to sexual information was through porn."
Therapist and author of "Absolutely Shouldless", Damon Jacobs had this to say after seeing the show - "All parents owe it to their children to come see The Accidental Pervert. Rarely does theater make such a strong argument in favor of open honest communication about sex."
Any sex or relationship professional interested in seeing the show and meeting Andrew should contact him via The Accidental Pervert website.
The Accidental Pervert is a laugh-filled show with a serious underlying theme. For three years, Andrew has been entertaining sold out crowds with the story of what happened after he found his Dad’s stash of adult videotapes when he was eleven years old. He takes the audience on a comic journey through his porninfluenced eyes, to reveal how his exposure to pornogrpahy overshadowed his relationships with women for many years, until he finally became a loving husband and father. The play is also running in Buenos Aires, starring the popular Argentine comic, Cabito.
The show runs every Friday and Saturday night at 7pm at The 13th Street Repertory Company in NYC.
