It’s nothing new for TV and movie stars to launch own-brand cosmetic, jewellery and health products, but now a star of the sell-out musical Avenue Q is hoping to become the first theatrical monster to follow suit.
New York native Trekkie Monster, currently appearing in the West End production of the hit show, has released a new 1,500 page self-help book intended “to help you along on a path to a life of immaculate health.” The book is intended to be the first in a range of titles by the author.
As those familiar with Trekkie may expect, Masturbation: The Medicine of Life, is centred around the actor’s favourite pastime and gives the reader tips on “tackling life’s problems with a simple stroke of the wrist.”
In a statement on his website medicineoflife.co.uk, Trekkie commented: “Me feel that this really digs to the soul of Trekkie. Ever since I was teenage monster, me worked very hard, enduring many sprained wrist and blistered palm for this cause. Me believe my techniques will help people and monsters all over the Earth”.
Trekkie is appearing in Avenue Q at Wyndham’s Theatre, Charing Cross Road until October 30th.
