Phil the Void, Nature Abhors a Vacuum
Phil VanHest, Los Angeles, Calif.
Stand-up at its inspired best, comedy that refuses to give in to the twisted times we live in. At last, a comedian who actually assumes the audience is intelligent enough to get that God is a sense of humor. Makes you feel a little less lonely as you laugh yourself off your seat. VanHest, who was formerly one-third of the sketch team Sound & Fury, has returned to the Fringe in a new incarnation that’s hilarious, subversive and very, very smart. In other words, he hits it out of the park. If you’ve begun to fear most stand-up seems like it’s been punched out of some permanently post-adolescent purgatory, this is the show you’ve been needing. Don’t miss it.
Performances Thursday at 10:30, Friday at 10:30, Saturday at 8:30 and Sunday at 2:30.
