KEIRAN BUTLER & AUSTIN LOW: CHE GUEVARA ON THE FRINGE- EVONNE KERON STRIKES BACK
THE GREEN ROOM, 37 GUTHRIE STREET 1600-1700
Once again, Trey Guevara and Frankie McCastro return from the future, (2017 to be precise) to rouse the apathetic and blinkered Festival goers into sparking a revolution, thus saving the Fringe from total corporate sell-out.
Combining aspects of Evita, Star Wars and the Enid Blyton Guide to the Communist Manifesto, and audience interaction, Austin Low and Keiran Butler and Michelle Wilson rally the troops against the sanitisation and commercialism of the Fringe.
The trio’s ability to ad-lib and interact with the audience is great and the points made about the pricing of tickets, accommodation and fish and chips during the festival would make a capitalist blush and certain ‘big-name’ comedians (well A certain ‘big-name’ comedian) gets the full brunt of Trey and Frankie’s ire!! With songs you can sing along to (because the tunes are very.very familiar!) and a sense of chaotic fun, ‘Che Guevara’ is a highly entertaining piece of work.
The show features a plot based on fact, rumour, innuendo and heaps of B.S. rounding off with a walk around the revolutionary sites of the Fringe culminating in the storming of the Fringe Box Office with demands for free tickets!!
Viva La Revolution!!
runs from 2-26th (except 13th)
