Er, no, it's actually a comedy show. And a very funny one, at that. Crenshaw is played by the American stand-up Rich Hall, who is one of the few comedians who get laughs out of the unlikely subject of an inmate in a high-security jail.
As we visibly wilt in the intense heat of the venue, he comments: "I know you're sweating like a one-legged man in an arse-kicking contest."
Playing a keyboard and speaking in a deep Southern drawl that would not have sounded out of place in Deliverance, Hall cleverly sends up the cliches of country and western. "I guess my dad did a lot of talking with his fists ... Because he was a puppeteer."
There might be questions about taste, but who else could have the audience in stitches over a Country and Western song about prison rape?Reuse content
