In the midst of an identity crisis, vegan soy-boy Charlie decides to give up pornography and hit the gay dating scene. Sex proves to be a disastrous distraction from self-loathing, and he soon realises that being emotionally unhinged and cynical makes him a difficult romantic candidate. Also, his pet goldfish Bob is horribly depressed.


Protein makes a sexy, sarcastic, soy-tastic return by popular demand, as part of The MC Showroom’s 1st queer-themed curated comedy season. One hour of non-stop chaos in the life of a messy millennial searching for love and morality in modern adulthood.
