Gavin McInnes’ Top 5 Things You Need To Know About HOW TO BE A MAN


Meet Mark (Gavin McInnes), a former comedian who finds himself coming to terms with his own mortality after finding a lump in his man-boob. Fearing certain death, Mark hires the services of Bryan (Liam Aiken), a young, impressionable cameraman, to document important video lessons for his unborn son. With the help of Bryan, Mark gives his own comical, and often crude, interpretation of what it truly means to be a man—like how to fight a bully, how to drink, and how to pick up women. When he almost loses everything important to him, Mark realizes that he is the one with the most to learn.

Co-written by and starring comedian, novelist and VICE co-founder Gavin McInnes, HOW TO BE A MAN  is the newest made-for-digital feature length film from Fox Digital Studio. Available now on Netflix and for purchase on Amazon and XBOX


Gavin McInnes' Top 5 Things You Need To Know About HOW TO BE A MAN


HOW TO BE A MAN is a rollicking and raucous comedy about a hedonist trying to teach his unborn son how to be a stand up guy. Like most of us, he thinks he’s an expert but soon realizes knowing everything in the world ain’t easy.

Though the movie came out completely perfect, there were some behind the scenes stuff that made shooting the movie a total nightmare.


I’m a child of the 70s. When I shoot a movie, I like there to be a giant pot of cocaine, several liters of pot, and a big basket of booze. There was none of this in any of that. The coke we snorted on screen was vitamin B and every time I asked a fellow cast member if he wanted to sneak a drink, he looked at me like I had just thrust my hand down his pants.

Right before the felatio scene, I had assumed it was going to get a guilt free blowjob (I’m married). I cleaned my penis and made sure it was ready to go. Only, when it came time to do it, the director handed me a nylon sock to stick over my junk. After meeting the girl in the scene it became clear that my hunch wasn’t even in the same universe as reality. She hadn’t even tried drugs once in her life. What is the matter with the kids today?

During the part where I get kicked in the nuts, the kid’s father knees me in the ribs as hard as he can. I was supposed to be wearing a protective body suit but I said that was for pussies and opted to go with nothing. I don’t recommend this as shooting the rest of the film with a broken rib made me feel like Henry Fonda in On Golden Pond. I look like I’m dying in every running scene because I am.

When my “wife” is throwing my shoes out the window she hit me with a boot and it sounded like two seals being slapped together by God. This left a black bruise on my leg the size of Ontario.

The producers were worried my gigantic phallus would look like a prosthetic but I assured them everyone would be totally fine with its bizarre size. I was wrong. I don’t think there’s one person who has seen the movie who hasn’t asked me if that was fake. I had no idea how small everyone else’s was. I guess I wasn’t paying attention in the locker room. Don’t let that discourage you. There are way more naked ladies than naked men. Also, it’s funny. Go see it.
