2012 ZACKIE AWARD WINNERS!

31 08 2012

So, it turns out that if you have a day off and enough spare time, you can actually just start your own Fringe traditions. I decided that it might be nice to give out a bunch of dumb awards to my friends in Edmonton and the whole thing kinda got outta hand, but ended up being a super fun way to  end my tour. SO without any further ado, for anyone that missed them, here are the categories and winners of the 2012 ZACK ADAMS AWARDS (aka THE ZACKIES).

Another ✮✮✮✮ Review from The Edmonton Fringe!

21 08 2012

“Almost-perfect example of what comic solo shows can be…his expressive physicality seemed effortless, elastic and wonderfully in step with the content…The guy has a genius for leading you into a story and he knows how to voice what you’re thinking before you have a chance to think it. His material can be hilarious, a touch boastful one moment, self-deprecating the next, poignant, even sad, but most importantly, it’s spare and sharp..He leaves you wanting more. ✮✮✮✮ ”
