Brooklyn, N.Y., actor/writer Kerry Ipema is a Carrie, a Samantha, a Charlotte and a Miranda in this smart, hilarious one-woman tribute to/parody of Sex and the City. Co-written with fringe veteran TJ Dawe, this hour-ish long show breathlessly runs down all six seasons of the HBO show with incredible accuracy and detail. But while Ipema’s impressions, physicality and comedic timing are spot-freaking-on (her Samantha is particularly perfect), it’s her witty, incisive asides that make One Woman Sex and the City worth the price of admission.
She often breaks the fourth wall — of both the comedy she’s in and as the actors in a TV show — to offer both on-point feminist analysis and commentary on the absurdity of television. SATC fan? You should definitely see this show. Not a fan? See it anyway.

From the Fringe program:
From Fringe god TJ Dawe (co-creator of One Man Star Wars and One Man LOTR) and Kerry Ipema (some chick TJ worked with in something else), this tribute takes audiences through a laughter-infused version of all six seasons of the beloved show. All our favourite characters come to life as they brunch, banter, argue and swoon over men and Manolos. For any fan of the show, this will provide a great reminder of why this series and its characters have stayed so firmly in women’s hearts and minds.
Show Length: 60 minutes
Suggested Audience: Mature
Warnings: Coarse Language, Sexual Content
