The Fringe So Far...

It was alright. I think Anthony has it in him to make a good Fringe show, but you can tell this was his first. The transitions from sketch comedy to stand-up were a tad awkward, as it was unnecessary for him to use a mic, but he did. The acoustics in the Planetarium Auditorium are lovely.

Letters at Large
Full disclosure: Jeff Sinclair is a friend of mine. With that said, I had a great time at his show. The concept: Jeff writes letters to companies, and reads the hilarious results on stage, with a slideshow . That may not sound like much, but it's all about what he says in those letters that generates the laughs. There are a couple of heart-warming moments, too.
Go see it.

EDIT: Oh yeah...go to the official site for more info, and keep tabs on the Winnipeg Free Press for reviews other than mine. Also, Jeff has a site for his show.

We've seen three so far. "Boat Load" we both liked, very much. And we're seeing Jem Rolls and Chris Gibbs back-to-back tonight.

Jem Rolls ruled, and we're seeing Chris Gibbs tonight, so I guess we're gonna run into you!
