Description

Fat Blokes is a sort of dance show about flab, double chins and getting your kit off in public – made by artist and forward-facing fatso, Scottee. Fat Blokes uncovers why fat men are never sexy but are always funny, always the before, but never the after shot. Made in collaboration with Lea Anderson and four fat blokes who've never done this sort of thing before. Prepare yourself for a show about pent-up aggression, riot grrrl and the hokey cokey. This is fat rebellion.
