Fringe 2017 - Returning Favorite - Ben San Del
Ben San Del (2006 Top 10) - Spec
Stoner robots, suicidal ghosts, and disapproving gargoyles—a four-time Fringe encore winner performs original stories on these and other near-future/supernatural speculations.
A last minute dropout in the weeks just prior to the Fringe gets us another dose of Ben San Del, so everybody wins. Whether it’s stand-up (Fiddlestick Conundrum, An Agony of Fools, Animal Cracker Genocide, Strawberry Fields Temporarily, Mittens For Fat Kids) or script writing (A Nice Guy’s Guide To Awkward Sex, Minnesota Middle Finger, and Fringe 2016’s encore slot winner Apple Picking), Ben always delivers some of the Fringe’s funniest material. This year he’s going the speculative fiction route. Mom and I enjoyed a dose of it last Fringe from other artists. I look forward to getting Ben’s spin on the art form. His Fringe preview was charming as ever. Mom and I have been seeing Ben’s Fringe shows from the beginning back in 2006, no reason to stop now.
And here's some handy links to the full list of pre-Fringe top 10, and 11-20, the rest of the returning favorites, and all the random shout outs in these Top 10/Top 20 posts - links all gathered in a single list to take you to fuller posts and Fringe pages. Enjoy!
