‘If you wanna talk to me, then shut yer fuckin’ mouth!’, sprays Raymond, one half of a pair of hilarious miscreants who became a viral cult phenomenon long before YouTube. In 1987, Eddie Guerriero and Mitch Deprey moved to San Francisco for some bohemian good times; instead they got an apartment with paper-thin walls and two raging alcoholics as neighbours. Raymond, a homophobe, and Peter, a flaming queen, were two men whose unfathomable relationship consisted of surreal torrents of explicit verbal abuse.

Initially recorded by Eddie and Mitch to mount a complaint, audio cassettes of their conversations were eventually passed around the world. Then came the adaptations, comic books, audio mash-ups, stage plays and feature films. Shut Up Little Man! features killer archival footage, interviews, re-enactments, copyright theft, invasion of privacy, and accusations of exploitation, all while being hilarious, unsettling and poignant. — AT
