About request an edit to this page

In The Head Doctor show, we derive pleasure from the feel good effects of positive words and public displays of affection. This is a love show unlike any in contemporary entertainment. You will become an active insider in this experimental theatrical experience in cultural humility and open communication that builds communion. Just bring your open mind and we will lead you to a joyous celebration of romantic love to create the perfect date night with you. We say "with you" because this is an interactive experience that involves mental and physical participation.

Inclusivity is key in the success of The Punany Poets community outreach programming. Our most popular production is The Head Doctor Show, created by Jessica Holter in 1995, which was first exposed to the World in an episode of the HBO Real Sex documentary show in the year 2000. Today, The Punany Poets run the Sex Education Theater Program for HIP INC, a Georgia Nonprofit Organization and travel various productions across the country and in the Caribbean.

The Head Doctor Show is a contemplative pop-culture production built on the simple truth that all people want to be loved. Holter has created a culturally sensitive urban design on Theater Of The Oppressed by Augusto Boal. While some people would dismiss the former Hip Hop entertainment journalist from serious conversations about The Tree of Contemplative Practices, because her words spill with provocation over red lips, her breasts, a full frontal attack on inhibition, her fishnets, a web of contradiction that does not welcome respect, scholars have published works on her unadulterated genius.
