Looking at people’s holiday pictures can be a downright dull experience. Little did I expect from the tantalising title that I would be doing the same again whilst watching this show.

Australian Jon Bennett has been travelling around the world taking pictures of various objects, people and historical landmarks and positioning them within the frame of the photograph so that they look like his genitals. Why? It’s never really explained. This rather depressing hour contains Bennett showing his favourite pictures and telling various tales of how these pictures were taken. Admittedly some of the pictures are very funny but looking at someone’s photos is not the most exciting of ventures.

Bennett stands to the left of the stage for the entire hour; he has some charm but his delivery is flat and tedious and he has absolutely no banter with the audience who are keen to be more involved. He also has a tendency to laugh at his own jokes. The whole show reeks of a man grasping on for dear life to his childhood but he looks bored and he even admits embarrassment at taking some of the pictures and hiding his ‘hobby’ from his family. It’s childish toilet humour that might be good for a few clicks on the internet but does not make a good show.

Bennett never fully explains where he got the money to travel the world but it seems a shame that this man has been to some of the most beautiful places in the world to take an immature ‘jock’ photograph. I can’t see this show being much good to anyone over the age of sixteen.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
