Observing What's Funny About Sex: John Woods of The Wet Spots

“If I am confronting a sexual issue in my own life and relationships it can be harder to be glib and humorous about it when writing the comic material,” reveals John Woods, one half of the comedy burlesque sensation The Wet Spots. “But sometimes being honest about what hurts strikes a goldmine of laughs.”
