Fringe Review: My Exploding Family

My Exploding Family, written and directed by Yanomi is a Japanese dance/clown/comedy show had the audience howling with laughter from start to finish. The show was expertly choreographed, weird, gravity-defying, and irresistable. The costumes and props were psychedelic, oversized, and ridiculous. I’d never been to a show where the audience is immediately transformed into a [...]

Fringe Review: Jocasta’s Noose

Jocasta’s Noose, written and directed by Ann Lambert, tells the story of a divorced, slightly damaged college teacher who has an affair with her star pupil.

This was a very strong [...]

Tinfoil, Clowns, and Callaghan: Dispatches from Fringe Day Whatever

Oh, the heat. The stifling, sweaty heat. The humidity! The horror. I actually love the heat. I’m a heat guy. I’m generally frileux, so I welcome any and all forms of heat and humidity. I wear sweatpants to bed nine months of the year. I sleep great in heat. Don’t have A/C at home, just [...]

Sweating in the Pool: A Very Fringey Tuesday

  After taking Monday off to do a stand up show (and missing My Exploding Family at 10:45 because I thought it was at 11:45. I showed up and tried to get tickets to a show that had already ended. The most surprising thing is that this is the first time this has happened to [...]

In Tough for Father’s Day: Fringe Day 3

Woke up late again on Sunday wondering what the hell I was going to get my dad for father’s day. I had about twenty minutes to look for a gift before making my first show of the day at 2:45. I biked down Mount Royal looking for inspiration. Stopped into The Source (that’s what they [...]

Knee Deep in the Fringe: Thoughts from Day 2

After wasting most of the afternoon and early evening putting off cleaning my apartment for hours, then slowly, painfully, intermittently cleaning my horrible mess of a home, throwing out papers, moving things to more hidden places, dusting, brooming and swiffer-wetting, I finally got my ass out into the gorgeous sunshine, and then immediately inside a [...]

Wading into the Fringe pool

Welcome to the best time of the year. Walking into the beer tent for the first time to pick up my superpass, all the warm feelings of Fringe Fests past came rushing into me. I don’t think there’s any better place to be in the summertime, and I was just glad that the callous forces [...]
