“When the BBC offered to let him host his own children’s television program in 1975, glitter-fabulous, animal-loving and sexually fluid Roger Wodehouse said that he would do it so long as he could be sexually honest and have live animals — at least according to this show’s fictional premise. Brought to the stage by last year’s “Top of the Fringe” and “Best of Comedy” winner Lost Moon Radio, Roger Wodehouse’s Androgymnasium presents a spoof children’s TV program that you can only pray no child ever sees. The sassy — and often nearly naked — Roger (Ryan Harrison) walks the audience through an all-grown-up version of every quintessential part of a children’s TV program. You’ve got your arts and crafts to learn how you can give yourself a Japanese makeover using your mom’s favorite tablecloth, a musical guest who sings about the horrors of mistreated circus animals and a species of confused cat/dog puppet who sings a spectacularly upbeat song about the hardship of feeling as though he were born in the wrong puppet body. Monica Miklas has produced a show that flawlessly walks the funny/offensive line. Better yet, you’ll be so busy laughing that you’ll hardly notice that the show is knitting in hot-topic social issues of sexuality.”

About the show:
“When BBC executives asked glam rock icon Roger Wodehouse to do a children’s television show in 1975, he had two questions. One: Would he be allowed to talk openly about his fluid sexuality? Two: Would there be animal guests? They said yes to both and he agreed to do the show, giving birth to the ultimate glam rock children’s television odyssey: “Roger Wodehouse’s Androgymnasium.” Along with his hard-rocking band and a slew of hapless guests, Roger educates, entertains, and expands the minds of his audiences, adults and children alike. Burn your cardigans, folks. This ain’t Mr. Rogers.”
Lost Moon Radio was named “Top of the Fringe” and “Best of Comedy” at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2012 and “Best of Comedy” at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2011.
