Jem Rolls (Edmonton Fringe); Pissed Off...as usual
Shows seen, shows proposed
The Edmonton Fringe is coming!
By Gaëtan L. Charlebois
Many of the shows about to be performed in the upcoming edition of the Edmonton Fringe have been performed at Fringes around the world, notably in Montreal, where I and many of the writers of The Charlebois Post (Montreal) saw them and reviewed them. Four shows I unreservedly urge you to see, all of which I have reviewed myself for CharPo or other publications.
Curriculum vitae is a magnificent tour-de-force by performer Jimmy Hogg. It is no laff-riot, as some people expected, but a free-wheeling, high-flying rush of words that is absolutely hypnotizing. (Review)
The Slipknot...? Well, what can I say about TJ Dawe except he is one of the most affable and accomplished story-tellers in the land and other Fringe artists will tell you he is their god. This time out it has three intertwining stories about work, love and shelter.
