Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Jesus Christ's Favourite Comedian
Worst. Fringe show. Ever. Proof? Eight people walked out.
From Edmonton, Alta. (let’s put the blame firmly where it belongs), Gregory Krayzelburg bills himself as an underground standup comedian — and under ground is where this abrasive, pointless, truly puerile dreck belongs.
In addition to singling out and being abusive to audience members, then enlisting three of them to participate in his “hypnosis act,” Krazelburg hits rock bottom with his “raising awareness of missing children campaign” by tearing the limbs off of a doll and then juggling them.
It appears the goal of this show is to separate fringe-goers from their hard-earned cash. You’d be better off tearing up a $10 bill, setting fire to it, and then stomping on the ashes for good measure.

From the Fringe program:
Underground stand-up comedian/performance artist Gregory Krayzelburg takes the audience on a hilarious, mind-bending journey involving stand-up comedy, magic and hypnosis.
