The Fringe is a great way for funny people to showcase their work outside the regular comedy venues. It’s also a way for comics to try their hand at other things. Stand-ups Terry Clement and Nikki Payne do sketch in Go F#$% Yourself (You Know What We Mean) (from Thursday, July 7, at the Helen Gardiner Phelan); sketch troupes
Statutory Jape, Uncalled For and She Said What expand their audience with their shows The Grapes Of Khan (continuing from Saturday, July 9 at the Helen Gardiner Phelan), Hypnogogic
Logic (from Friday, July 8, at Bathurst Street Theatre) and She Said What
Happened (from Thursday, July 7, at Bathurst Street Theatre); Vancouver duo Peter ’n Chris Save The World! (from Thursday, July 7, at the George Ignatieff); Fringe veterans Chris Crad
dock and Ron Pederson combine improv with a dating scenario in The
LOVE Octagon (from Thursday, July 7, at Passe Muraille Mainspace); and speaking of improv, one of the country’s best, Lisa Merchant, directs A
Gentleman’s Club Fringe Show (continues from Saturday, July 9, at the Factory Studio), an off-the-cuff look at T.O.’s most privileged people.
