From the creator of the IndyFringe hit "The Last Straight Man In Theatre" comes a solo comedy about the unusual and bizarre adventures that come with supporting a solo career. Kurt Fitzpatrick plays not just himself, but also works as a systems operator, bike messenger, Halloween show zombie, and guerrilla marketer.
Kurt Fitzpatrick powers through his one-man show with seemingly indefatigable energy, ricocheting from character to character as he dramatizes his continuing struggle to find an occupational niche. Messenger, guerilla marketer and creepy crawling crab at Madison Scare Garden this is not the career path he envisioned while studying filmmaking in college. At times one wishes that Fitzpatrick, who bears a striking resemblance to a young Tim Robbins, would slow down the pace and focus on more fully developing his characters. Nonetheless, buoyed by his confident stage presence and remarkable mimicking ability, he captures his audience’s attention from start to finish, delivering humor and insights throughout his hour-long performance. - Matthew McClure
