Two Fringe Preview Helpings of Absurdity, part 1 - Night 1

“Why not vote for someone you actually want to get f**ked by?”

Indefinite Articles - A Libertarian Rage - There’s a handful of artists that Mom’s gotten to know over her years of Fringing that always worth repeat viewing.  Whatever they’re doing, she’s interested.  If I bring up their name, she doesn’t ask “What are they doing?”  She just says “Add it to the schedule.”  One of those performers is phillip andrew bennett low (she loves saying all four names, if she could say it in lower case somehow, she would).  This year Phillip’s railing against the absurdity of politics in a rewritten remount of Indefinite Articles: A Libertarian Rage.  Mom missed the original a few years back due to scheduling difficulties (she’s only here for the first five days), so she’s very happy to be able to catch this new version.  Of all the intriguing options the schedule offers up in the very first slot on the very first night, Thursday 7/31 at 5:30pm, this is the one she wanted to see the most.  Phillip’s been a relentlessly touring Fringe artist for a while know, and he knows how to work a preview.  He got some help from a friend - flash card rapid fire question and answer session to pack in as many clever jokes as possible, so you know you’ll be properly entertained.  Always interested to see what he’s got up his sleeve this time.  A great way to kick off this year’s Fringe.
