Com­edy that makes the cut

NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe preview 25 things you can’t miss -

Some of North Amer­ica’s fun­ni­est folks once again de­scend on the Fringe to de­liver take-no-pris­on­ers laughs.

While it’s dis­ap­point­ing that no one’s come up with a Rob Ford satire, the late ad­di­tion of Fringe fave The Soaps (from July 5 at the George Ig­nati­eff) should do the trick. The set­ting for the on­go­ing im­pro­vised comic soap opera is City Hall, so you can bet the comics will be “cracking” lots of mayor jokes.

Funny guys Peter Car­lone and Chris Wilson ex­pand on their Sketch Com­edy Fest hit Peter N’ Chris Ex­plore Their Bod­ies (from July 5 at the George Ig­nati­eff), while the equally amus­ing Isaac Kessler and Ken Hall do the se­quel thing with 2-Man No-Show 3 (from July 5 at the He­len Gar­diner Phe­lan). Of the stand-up comics try­ing out new things, look for Dan Bing­ham to get laughs in Adopt This! (from July 4 at the Solo Room), chron­i­cling his up­bring­ing and meet­ing his biological fam­ily. And while the list of comic per­form­ers is pretty guy-heavy, as per usual, Laura Bai­ley and Jess Beaulieu should even things out with The Late Night Tonight Show LIVE In The Morn­ing With CHICKA BOOM! (from July 4 at the Free Times Café), a spe­cial Fringe edi­tion of their monthly all-fe­male talk show with celeb guests, news par­o­dies and weather re­ports. We ex­pect it’ll be cloudy with a

chance of gig­gles.
