Not exactly a guide to anything except comic Shelby Bond’s life, The Poor Man’s Guide to Being Rich is Bond’s first fringe foray into standup.

After a broken ankle at last year’s Edmonton Fringe Festival put a damper on his naturally optimistic spirit, Bond decided he could finally tackle standup, the refuge of malcontents the world over. But Bond’s optimistic streak is impossible to suppress, even when cracking jokes about his addict/Hells Angel dad. Whether he’s trying to convince the world he’s not gay or discussing deer hunting in Texas, Bond is a sweetly funny comic who will never truly join the ranks of the disgruntled standup. For one thing, his ukulele would have to go, and for another, he’s just too darn nice.

— Barb Stewart

 

From the Fringe program:

LA comic and Fringe favorite Shelby Bond returns to Winnipeg to present his indispensable survival guide.

In stand-up, stories and songs, you'll learn how to avoid having a real job, how to read a drunk text, how to spot wild, crazy love from 20 yards and how to kill with kindness…or a shotgun.
