Comedian Pete Helliar is returning to Adelaide’s Fringe Festival with his show ‘Big Boy Pants’ and he reveals to Jodie & Soda the show does discuss him having a vasectomy.

“I feel like I’m becoming an Ambassador for Vasectomies, men and woman are asking question because sometimes women are discussing it with their partners, it’s a hot topic at the moment”

And when Helliar revealed he went to sleep during the procedure it led to Soda revealing a little too much on his own experience in a doctor’s surgery…

“Pete many years ago I had a groin issue and I was getting these big elephant injections in my groin to try and strengthen the pelvis so the doctor would put a few local anaesthetic because he came back with the big elephant killer”

“When he walked back in the room it involuntarily went to attention…he said I will just leave you with your thoughts and walked out again!”
