Planetarium Auditorium (Venue 10), to July 23

The fantasy notion of a "bachelor pad" gives way to a reality of loneliness, unwanted guests and making entrees out of ketchup and mayonnaise in this one-man comedy performed by Toronto’s Kristian Reimer, who co-authored this embellished standup routine with Ron Fromstein.

Reimer’s observational comedy veers towards the obvious and banal. (Didja ever notice how Maxim cover girls have "unattainable bodies?") Tales of sexual conquest aren’t really funny and in fact carry the unmistakable whiff of braggadocio. And if I wanted to see 20-somethings flaunt their sex lives, I’d just as soon watch a Jersey Shore marathon.

— Randall King

 

From the official Fringe Festival program:

Exploring the bachelor life and dealing with everything the world throws the bachelor's way. From laundry to love, this show is insightful, witty, hilarious, playful and truthful, with some embellishment.

All kings (and queens) of their castle start off in the place known as the Bachelor Pad Royale.

"Quick and menacingly hilarious" - Globe and Mail
