Great cheap brunch at historic Caffe Reggio (which is practically next door) before & a drink at the long standing Fat Black Pussycat around the corner on W. 3rd St., which is also not really expensive.

Description

By Andrew Goffman

Directed by Charles Messina

Extended for a second time, The Accidental Pervert is a critically acclaimed story about an innocent boy who accidentally discovers his father’s secret collection of XXX-rated video tapes. Goodbye innocence. Hello hilarious off-Broadway show.

On his odyssey to manhood, Andrew Goffman takes his audience on a very funny and self-deprecating journey into a world of video vixens, X-rated fantasies, and really dirty movies with no redeeming value whatsoever. He found the tapes at age 11. The addiction controlled him until he was 26 — the year he met his wife.__ __
