Joe Gage’s Late 1970’s Porn Classic Turned Into A Late Night Comedy Stage Show! – LA TOOL & DIE: LIVE! – A Pre Condom Comedy

The Celebration Theatre Company of Santa Monica, CA is going where many men have gone before but in a new way.  By prsenting a LIVE version and putting a comedic spin  spin ont he  70’s gay porn film “LA Tool & Die” based on the Joe Gage film of the same name, LA TOOL & DIE: LIVE! is being described as the “Airplane” of gay porn. In the way “Airplane” poked fun at “disaster movies” of the era, Writer and Director Sean Abley cheekily does the same with gay porn of the 70’s. This show contains adult language and content, male frontal nudity and comedy in equal amounts. (I would hope so!)

Joe Gage made a name for himself bringing tales of lusty masculine men having sex and “doing other masculine things with their shirts off” in the ‘70’s. “Kansas City Trucking Company” was the first in the trilogy that LA TOOL & DIE completes.

For those of you not familar with the, eeehm “plot”,

L.A. Tool & Die follows Hank, the masculine working man, and Wiley, the shy (but masculine) cowboy as they make their way across the Heartland to Los Angeles. Along the way they meet many hot, handsome and, dare we say it? Masculine men, whose clothes seem to fly off at the drop of a hat. This ain’t your father’s late night comedy show
