Topic “Emily”

“you were being, like, Pitchfork to Mark…”

So for me, my last night at Fringe was on Friday. I was happy to be there that day, although because of weather/travel issues, I missed Tape. I was really interested in seeing it not only because I've seen the film adaptation (and my boyfriend loves it), but because I am interested to see how a high school production fits into Fringe. I support the kids doing it, and I think it's fantastic experience to be around so many professionals.

“cheeky Candian fuh-ah!”

For all of the "staff" at, TJ Dawe has obviously been a huge part of our experience. Seeing that most of us had already seen Charles Ross's One Man Lord of the Rings, One Man Star Wars et. al., both of which TJ directed, and most of us girls simply fell in love with him, he was a big name from the start of the week.

And then we got to interview him.

And we saw him at Mark's show.

And then I saw his show, Canadian Bartender at Butlin's.

UPDATE: 5/26/2006

Last night, while I hung out with Katharine at the WHiRR booth (where we got fresh with Boris the Robot), Ryan made out with TJ Dawe in the grass between the two main theatres.

He even pointed out where their buttprints were. Amazing.

More details later. Suffice to say, we are all jealous of Ryan. Very much so. I love my boyfriend, but I wouldn't say no to making out with TJ Dawe. I get to FINALLY see his show tonight, for which I am extremely excited.

“you will go back to showbiz, or I will kill you.”

So last night we finally got to see our good friend Mark Baratelli and his show, the infamous Improv Caberet.

The big thing to understand about Mark, above all else, is that he's a huge LIAR!!! Don't believe ANYTHING this man says! Ryan and I know!

“why are you such a BITCH!”

Hence asks a character in the ensemble comedy Misleading Perceptions. Someone would probably ask this of me, as a "critic", of shows that are meant to be "100% unjuried". I suppose my response to this would be that those who are not judged by any academy must be judged by their peers - and that criticism can be far harsher (I should know).

Regardless, I return with a second (and hopefully less drama-inciting) review.

“You might want to ask a few questions about that modern art…”

After my first night Fringing (I love the noun to verb transition), I came away with a few impressions of the Festival thus far. This being only my second one, you might consider me unqualified. Untrue - see below!

Tickets: $10

Interview with Mark Baratelli on PFA Podcast

Mark Baratelli did a very recent guest spot on one of our podcasts, You can't spell crapface without PFA. The show is hosted by Myla Goldberg and The Captain of the Other Team (AKA Ryan Price, who you may have met at Fringe), and is often irreverant and offensive.

If you just can't stand 72 minutes of Mark, Emily and Ryan, I spent 3 hours cutting together this new-and-improved 20-minute-long version for the short of attention span (or time). Here is the link:
