Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Toronto sketch comedy duo Brie Watson and Erin Rodgers present an hour of material that is enthusiastically performed but is at best ho-hum mainstream and at worst not all that funny.
One bit involves a woman griping about her boring boyfriend, he of the same 18 coloured pairs of pants, whose idea of excitement is a two-week holiday in Sudbury. “It’s like I’m dating plain yogurt,” she grumbles. The final straw is when she thinks she is about to be proposed to but is offered his beloved coleslaw. Ba-dem, bump.
All the sketches seen in Montreal, from the one about cupcake wars between crime bosses to another about annoying cafe waitresses, serve up harmless, low-impact comedy that lacks any edge or off-beat perspective.
From the Fringe program:
The modern world is confusing: war, pestilence, the persistent fame of the Kardashians. How can we navigate it all and make a better life when we can't break free from our water wings? How about an LOL-filled sketch comedy show with a dance break or two?
