How the Potty Trained Us

The Interactive Comedy Lecture

What if the solution to climate change, world peace, and self-love was the one thing no one wanted to talk about?

As the uptight Dr. Oscar von Shtein begins his thrilling FRED Talk on the Classics, he is interrupted by the mysterious Puru. From communal Roman toilets to the Queen who banished the bowel movement, The Puru unearths the origins of our dis-ease, and exposes how current sanitary practices threaten our health, environment, and 40% of the world still living without safe toilets. But when The Puru disappears, can Oscar save the day and face his shit before it hits the fan?

Fascinating, hilarious and totally timely, An Inconvenient Poop asks us to take the plunge, join a revolution pushing for change from the bottom up, and proudly declare “I’m a pooper!”

Currently available for touring as How the Potty Trained Us. This adaptation delivers all the same content in a production that is accessible to any venue with a projector.
