Covering the Toronto Fringe: About an Hour by Sempé

About an Hour: playing at the Toronto Fringe Festival

Fast Forward Rating: FFFF (4 out of 5)


Jim Annan, Rob Baker, Jan Caruana and Alex Hatz are geniuses.

Why do I say this? Is it for their witty and entirely improvised performances in their show About an Hour (as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival)? Is it for the experience of witnessing their exuberance and spontaneity in action and in real time, as they seamlessly (well, most of the time) make it through scene after unrehearsed scene with a (nearly) straight face?

Pah! It’s obviously both. The performances of these four improv savants are clever, engaging and hilarious. From rectal exams to marital distress, no topic goes untouched. Not to be missed!


About an Hour: shows daily July 2-12 @ 8:00, the Fringe Club (The Tranzac), 292 Brunswick Ave.
