Imagine Saving Private Ryan meets the sex education you wish you had, and they don't wear adequate protection. Nine months later this show pops out. Don't be ejacu-late, but don't come early. The most physical comedy you could wish for, from the pr*cks behind the total sell-out Planet Earth III, Luke Rollason, Christian Brighty and Tom Curzon. ***** ( **** ( 'Made me cry with laughter' **** ( 'Hugely entertaining' (

Amazing! So weird but so good. But really, it's so weird. But in the best possible way. Favourite show I've seen at Fringe this year. These guys did a great job and I would very highly recommend this show to everyone!!! If you ever come back to Edinburgh - let’s be friends :)

A story for every single sperm/egg combination out there. Never been as invested in a microscopic character arc. A sex-ed class you wished you'd had(but never will). You were born to watch (and almost pee your pants to) this.

Quirky and hilarious! So glad we came to see this, I was in hysterics the whole time, the guys comedic timing was spot on and the rough around the edges feel made it even funnier and it’s a lush venue!

Funniest show at the Fringe. Loved the dance routines and the silly interactions between the 3 clowns (who play multiple characters/sperm). Such imaginative use of laundry pop-up bags!
Good venue if a little cramped - this show deserves a bigger stage

A hilarious show! We were so happy we took a punt on this, go and see it!

This show is one of those comedy shows that is a very rare treat. It is pure joy. There wasn't a need for an edge or for lacerating satire, instead 3 men dressed up as sperm and via some excellent musical choices and the pure force of their performance absolutely stole the fringe. Go see this show if you want to laugh, because you will laugh. You will laugh a lot and you might also feel like everything's gonna be alright in the world, cus i certainly did. Don't miss it. If you only see one sperm clown show this fringe, make it this one!!

One of the funniest shows I have ever seen, if not the funniest! I did not stop laughing the whole way through, and even after the show! The writing and delivery was spot on for that type of humour, not to mention to hilarious physical comedy along side it! The three men in the show were all a joy to watch on stage, and absolutely wonderfully talk to after as well!

All around just an amazing experience! Will recommend and have recommended!

Funniest show I've seen all week. So funny I've seen it twice. If you want to spend a whole hour laughing .... go and see THIS show. Did I mention it's really funny. DON'T miss it.

Best show I’ve seen so far! Couldn’t stop laughing all the way through! Absolutely ridiculous & hysterically hilarious!! Highly recommend it for a laugh!

Jack Sheppard 104 days ago

One of the funnest, craziest, singular shows I've seen so far at the fringe. The kind of funny that comes from viral videos that make you want to scream in bed alone at 3am. Some super impressive physical comedy and a genuine delight - watch these 3 lads pretend to be sperm like your life depends on it! please for the love of GOD!

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 82 days ago

Privates: A Sperm Odyssey describes itself as a show which is ‘the sexual education equivalent of Saving Private Ryan‘. How do these two themes link together, I hear you cry? The general format is that  the comedic trio of Luke Rollason, Tom Curzon, and Christian Brighty alternate between a group...
