The Vancouver Fringe Festival is on and a few people have been asking me what shows they should go see. So, I’ve compiled a list of people I know who are fun, engaging performers, people I personally know or shows I’ve seen before.
In no particular order I recommend:
Every Job I Ever Had – Barry Smith
I’ve seen at least two of Barry’s previous shows. They’re always smart, witty and fun.
Lucky 9 – TJ Dawe
TJ Dawe is the king of one man shows. He’s what every fringe artist aspires to be.
Die Roten Punkte: Kunst Art
I caught this ‘band’ doing a midnight show in 2007 and I nearly laughed off my chair.
Racoonery – Morgan Brayton
Go see this funny and charming Say Wha?! performer.
Moving Along – Ryan Gladstone and Freud vs His Ego- Ryan Gladstone
Someday soon Ryan Gladstone will be the new TJ Dawe. Well, he already kind of is, but in his own way.
Jem Rolls: One Man Riot
Performance poetry with an accent. Aye.
