Inspired by an amateur porn site (bigsausagepizza.com), this original musical comedy (book and lyrics by Greg Ott, music by Charles Worth) follows closely the Annoyance Theatre’s formula for campy, self-consciously foul shows like Co-ed Prison Sluts: use a mixture of blue humor, comic songs, and rough acting to tell the story of a bunch of disgusting but oddly likable characters. This time it's applied to a failing family restaurant with a corps of well-endowed pizza delivery guys who turn to prostitution and porn to save the business. The show itself is a messy mixture of clever and lame comedy, unbridled vulgarity and poignant social commentary. One moment it surprises with its brilliance, the next it astounds with its stupidity. In the end, though, the show promises more than it delivers. —Jack Helbig
