Dip in the FUCT Tank at Times Square
Type: Entertainment & Performances
Event Location: The Tank
FUCT is a twisted, no-rules adult variety group that challenges what audiences find taboo or offensive. Their show is a circus of humor, suffering, and social commentary that incorporates music and dance, nudity and pain, misdirection and audience participation.
FUCT began in May of 2002 when a group of students illegally performed an evening of underground comedy. This show was put up at midnight in the black-box theater with a curtain, a microphone and a keg. Back then the only point collectively agreed upon was the title, FUCT. By the following fall, rumors of this secret show had quickly spread and when FUCT returned (now introducing a live band into the mix), the audience more than doubled in size, with students cramming in to sit or stand wherever they could to catch a glimpse of the stage. In December of 2004, a portion of the group partnered up with most of the original members in an attempt to take FUCT to the world. FUCT in Public premiered for one night only at the Rattlestick Theatre, thrusting the troupe of players onto the New York City comedy scene.
"FUCT created the most twisted and cannibalistic kids' show ever, held a sing-along with Osama bin Laden, married a premature baby, told guys it's cool to be gay, wowed us with illusion, and got naked and dirty with the audience."-BACKSTAGE, NYC
"FUCT is setting houses on fire, both literally and figuratively. In a recent performance, "Boy's Night Out,""six of the male cast members, donning full mustaches, sprayed the packed audience with "lighter fluid"" and explained that the night could only end in a Bacchanalian orgy that sounded like a scene from 'Saw.'"
