Direct from the Brighton Fringe and from the wicked pen of Australian playwright Steven Dawson, writer of The Importance of Being Earnest as Performed by Three F*cking Queens and a Duck, comes the return of the 2008 sell-out comedy. An outrageous but ultimately moving rollercoaster ride through the world of online chatting. Two boys leap from one orgasmic, underpants-bursting adventure to the next, until one asks the unthinkable: 'Can we meet?' Featuring an all-new UK cast and production.

Without doubt the best title of any show on the fringe. So the worry is that the show won't live up to it.

Luckily I and my friends are not prudish. We all laughed throughout the show. Being Irish I did find the outrageous scene with the lord of the manor and the Irish farmhand especially funny. One of those "did they really do that?" moments.

I will definitely look out for this group next year.

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I went to see my nephew in this on Friday and though I knew about the risqué content I thought what the hell I’ll close my eyes. I didn’t! It was so good I forgot it was my nephew and laughed hysterically throughout, I genuinely cried with laughter as did the unsuspecting friends I brought along. The end was sooo sweet, it so completely captured the ‘do we don’t we’ debates we have all had at moments of commitment and the often frustrating self sabotage we so often inflict upon ourselves. I am certainly biased no two ways about it, but honestly this was so worth it - do yourself a favour go laugh out loud, it’s good for the soul! Well done Brad and Harry and let’s not forget Bernie, an inspiring insightful Director. You all rock and I am beyond proud

An amazingly poignant production! Love in the digital world, realised in the real world!! Brilliantly directed and the performances of the two young chaps were outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful show.

I laughed harder at this than anything else at the Fringe, which is reason enough to see it in my opinion, but what's more, the acting is fantastic and for a show that starts out incredibly raunchy, it winds up very sweet and touching. A beautiful love story with hilarious sex jokes. What's not to love?

We found this to be very funny, well written and acted. It does have sexual themes (not a surprise given the title) but these are in context of the show and make it so funny. I liked the ending and glad we took the gamble to see this show.

This is a two hander which might almost be called a four thumber. However, many other anatomical features do have a part to play… Two guys begin chatting online. Jamie has the site name Butt Boy and Matt is Tigger. As Tigger quickly points out, Jamie does have a story...

It’s well worth an hour of your time, and the online generation of any sexual orientation will recognise a lot!

It is often a challenge to take a piece of original writing that has already achieved success at the Fringe and do something new with it. Adventures of Butt Boy and Tigger is an online love story by Steven Dawson, which received international acclaim upon its debut. It is now...

UK Theatre Web (5/5 stars) 118 days ago

I was expecting outrageous, but not hilarious! This is a forthright tale of love between two unsuccessful guys who meet on Grindr and their exploits as they get to know each other. Explicit fantasies abound and lead to extreme laughter from their audience.
