Boissevain native (and neo-Vancouverite) Jason Broadfoot is back for his 18th fringe. As you can guess from the title, he’s once again brought his bag of set-up-and-punchline jokes for another standup comedy routine.

There’s little unique about Broadfoot’s delivery other than that, by his own admittance, he glances often at his "cheat cards," which he should probably just stop doing instead of making a joke about it. His material isn’t exactly cutting-edge either: marriage is hard, guys suck at home renovation, Vancouver is full of heroin addicts, that kind of thing.

But Broadfoot also tosses in some fun fringe humour, and overall he delivers a likable, inoffensive routine. Comedy-club diehards will find some chuckles in this short, 35-minute show. But if you’re skeptical about standup, this joker won’t convince you.

— Melissa Martin

From the official Fringe Festival program:

Jason T. Broadfoot comes home to Manitoba with his unique and hilarious views on home repair, husbanding, TV, extreme sports, GenX and more… He’s A Stand-Up Guy.
