Feminine Fun Studies


chuck morris_ffs

Chuck Morris undertakes a serious study in nonsense, in performing a joke, in looking like fools. They are young and beautiful women. Nobody thinks they are funny. Canned laughter. Feminine Fun Studies walk the thin line of humor and take being funny to an unexpected place: the female sex. Femme fatale and natural beauty, blonde and brunette, Dolly and Holly, Coyote and Roadrunner or the white academic supertwin – these are the figures that infuse the place down there with their charm and have the vagina take a deep breath. Using stand-up comedy, vaudeville numbers, animated cartoon tricks and classics from the feminist avant-garde, Chuck Morris scores above and below the waistline. The red curtain is drawn: Women and humor are laid bare in the open.
