The story of Andy and his band of former prisoners (coming over something like the lovechild of The Blues Brothers and Frankie Boyle) makes for a brilliant show. As Andy recounts the absurdist tale of how he came to be imprisoned and thus meet his band, we are led along his grimy path of sexual perversion, drug abuse, and Disney sponsorship to a rocky tune that you can’t help but clap, tap, and sing along to. With an original and macabre setlist, Andy and his band aim to please the politically incorrect in a fresh and rousing manner. Songs as comically and musically accomplished as ‘Benefits Girl’ and ‘Uncle Walt’ make you glad you visited ‘The Prostitutes’.
