The Black Full Monty, documents The Chocolate Men – Britain’s first all Black touring strip dancing group. The Chocolate Men will be air on Channel 4 Thursday, September 10th at 10pm.
The Full Black Monty is the story of male strippers and their entrepreneurial manager as they reach a critical point in their evolution. It touches on the fetishization of Black men and the related fantasising and exploitation.
From The Chocolate Men themselves, we find out first hand what it means to be a black man stared at, envied, and the object of power-related fantasies in the context of today’s Britain. As they strut their stuff on stage, as they prepare behind the scenes, as they live the life they want to become accustomed to, we get their perspectives on fulfilling a stereotype; on whether this is just an honest living or something darker and how far they will go to earn that living.
