What happens when seasoned performers Kevin Brooking and Colm O'Grady create a show after 2 years of improvising with hundreds of frying pans and a grain of popcorn? The result is their act "Naked Lunch".

They're performed in 2015 at Das Supertalent. They're eliminated at the audition round.


Men with Pans' audition in Episode 1204 consisted of the men wearing just chef hats, socks, shoes and pans, which they strategically use to cover their genitals. At one point, one of the men ditched his pan while upside down in a lift, as his partner switched his cookware back and forth to cover their backsides as they spun in place. The song used in the act was Yma Sumac's "Gopher Mambo". Mel B and Simon Cowell buzzed the act. Although Simon voted "No", Howie Mandel, Mel B, and Heidi Klum voted "Yes", sending the duo to the Judge Cuts.
