Hey there, time traveller!

Shelby Bond and Todd Abrams have too much stuff, and so do you. The Los Angeles comedy team wants to help you get rid of that crap, with advice delivered through a series of songs, sketches, beat poetry and some wanton destruction.
The likable American duo shines on the songs and are quick wits, able to finish each other’s sentences. They offer "rulings" about what to keep and what to throw away: the latter includes most stuffed animals, keepsake shirts, VHS tapes and books you will never read. You can even bring stuff you want to get rid of and have it smashed into tiny pieces during one of the many audience-participation segments.
The concept is loose and the duo likes to talk, so Stuff meanders a bit, but the hilarity warning at the beginning of the show is pretty accurate. Good stuff.

From the official Fringe Festival guide:
Shelby Bond (formerly of Sound & Fury) and Todd Abrams (The Tonight Show) are just like you. They own a lot of stuff they don’t need but totally had to have. With songs and sketches, they will remind you all you need is love … and maybe an iPad.
