Planetarium Auditorium (Venue 10), to Saturday

U.K. comic-poet Rob Gee offers up a “celebration of impropriety” with stories and poems culled from his riotous youth, his years as a psychiatric nurse, and the madness of contemporary life.

It’s safe to say that Gee is the best friend impropriety ever had, as you’ll come to understand listening to verse including a very rude Ode to Viagra and, in more socially conscious turf, a poem about “Poppy Day” that was commissioned by the BBC and then banned from the BBC.

Charismatic and outrageous, Gee is like the ultimate drinking buddy. Pity his venue’s so far from the beer tent, really.

— Randall King

 

From the official Fringe Festival program:

A celebration of impropriety from the creator of sell-out Fringe hits Fruitcake and SmartArse.
