Man Inadvertently Shown Nude on Live Morning News Show SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 4, 2002--Viewers of the KRON 4 live morning show received a literal "wake up" this morning when the station accidentally shot one of the stars of PUPPETRY OF THE PENIS from the "waist down," rather than "waist up." This is believed to be the first time in history that a penis was seen live on morning television. Simon Morley and David "Friendy" Friend were being interviewed by KRON4 Morning News hosts about the upcoming San Francisco engagement of PUPPETRY OF THE PENIS at Theatre on the Square beginning October 29, when the guffaw occurred. "Unfortunately, The Ancient Art was revealed this morning and as a result, has demystified the art of genital origami which is usually reserved for a beautiful theatre such as Theatre on the Square," said Friendy, whose penis was transmitted into more than 150,000 households in the Bay Area at approximately 8:15 a.m this morning. "We never intended to reveal The Art to the viewers at home and we're very upset that thousands of people saw my penis on live TV, out of context and without my permission." According to KRON-TV, they have received hundreds of calls from Bay Area viewers while PUPPETRY OF THE PENIS reports a significant spike in ticket sales. Producer David J. Foster said, "This has made life very difficult for our box office staff. They were expecting the normal volume of calls but sales went crazy. We apologize to any patrons who were placed on hold due to this extraordinary situation." PUPPETRY OF THE PENIS, the international comedy hit, will make its San Francisco debut at Theatre on the Square in a limited engagement beginning October 29. More than 40 heroic and hilarious installations are presented including crowd pleasers, tourist attractions and food products like The Pelican, The Windsurfer, The Eiffel Tower, the Loch Ness Monster, and their signature creation, the Hamburger.
