Fringe 2017 - Returning Favorites - Josh Carson and Andy Kraft
Josh Carson and Andy Kraft (2012 Top 10) of
Outlandish Productions - The Wright Stuff, or You’ll Believe They Can Fly!
The story of two brothers who got knocked down -- but they got up again. Nothing's ever going to keep them down.
Hetero life partners and comedic partners-in-crime Josh Carson and Andy Kraft are particular favorites of my mom, so we have to fit them into the schedule. And it’s no hardship, they’re always hilarious (and strangely heartwarming, too, between the pratfalls). They’re assaulting history with comedy again, a la Our American Assassin - this time it’s the Wright Brothers trying to get that first plane off the ground. In their Fringe preview, the inclusion of historically accurate medicinal doses of “cocaine” made them so enthusiastic, they ended up sacrificing a chair as well as bruising themselves. They’ll entertain you even if it kills ‘em. (Perhaps we shouldn’t encourage them, but they’re so good at it.)
And if you need a second dose of Mr. Carson, he’s also hosting the celebrity impersonation show Repertoire Dogs. They also had an amusing (though less physically imperiled) preview.
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!
