"I’m Paco Erhard, and this show is bullsh--t," the German stand-up comedian declares to start his 75-minute examination into the origin of the word bulls--t. Along the way he provides examples of things that may or may not be a bunch of crap, including his time doing mandatory service in the German army, online ratings, pharmaceutical ads and stereotypes.
Erhard is confident and likeable, even when being self-depreciating. He often went on tangents before returning to his main points. His strongest bits related to climate change and religion, which caused a couple of audience members to walk out during a spot-on segment about how the Catholic Church dealt with pedophile priests.
He admitted the new show was loose in parts — a segment on ancient Persia didn’t connect — and he was right, but he was wrong about the show being B.S. By the end of the fringe, he should have a tight 60 minutes that skips the bull and dives right into the good s--t.
