Boston Battle of the Sexes

A few days ago, I had a successful appearance at Boston University where Signe Baumane and I did our big smash “Battle of the Sexes”.

Upon arrival at the luxurious Commonwealth Hotel. We walked through the rain and snow to Harvard to meet one of the animators in the Battle of the Sexes show, the great Ruth Lingford. We also did a visit to probably the shortest street in Boston – Plympton Street.

Then Signe and I, after dressing up in our formal attire, rushed to the auditorium to make our show, only to find out that it was booked. Then the whole entourage moved across the street to another venue where we displaced a religious meeting.

When our audience finally arrived, Gerald Perry, the organizer, was forced to warn everyone that the “Battle of the Sexes” show contains explicitly sexual material and told anyone with very sensitive tastes to leave the room, to protect against any kind of lawsuits from religious nuts.

After that, the show proceeded swimmingly. The Boston legend David Kleiler was the “Mad Professor” while the beautiful Sandrine Flament played “Fifi L'Amour”, our hostess and Vanna White stand-in.

Naturally, the women won the battle (again!), but everyone loved the films and the spirited debate after each short.

Signe and I have done this show numerous times and out next appearance is in May at the Planet Doc fest in Poland.

If you're interested in bringing Signe and I and the “Battle of the Sexes” to your town, just send me an e-mail and we can talk. The show is a smash success wherever it plays.
