Jason Brasher has the makings of a good storyteller — gift for gab, engaging presence, mischievous streak a mile wide — and he obviously loves being the centre of attention. He’s that life-of-the-party guy who’s always cracking up his friends with those “you shoulda been there” yarns, spun out of mundane situations that always manage to take a bizarre turn.

But that guy needs more than a microphone to turn his party shtick into an hour-long show. Brasher has a knack for physical comedy, but his disjointed anecdotes are all set-up and no punchline. And since there’s never a moral or conclusion — or a point, really — they don’t quite cut it as stories, either.

The Winnipegger, who’s making his stage debut here, was probably a hoot as a bartender. But given the gross tales he tells out of school, I don’t know that I’d want to be one of his massage clients.

From the official Fringe program:

Bartending, nipple rings, tin foil domiciles, animals, sex, farts, “sharts”, more sex, speech impediments, pranks, Winnipeg drivers, crazy co-workers, sleeping and of course...massage therapy, are all somehow interweaved and make up the past six years of my life.

These stories have made people laugh so hard they peed a little. And now I’m going to share them all with you.
