Dr Brown Because
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2010
Dr Brown Because is for anyone tired of winsome witticisms and predictable punch-lines. A largely wordless act of absurdist mime and downright uncomfortable weirdness, the show may or may not involve handcuffs, olives, board games, dancing, sunscreen and a transvestite. Leaving audiences delightfully bewildered, Dr Brown goes strange places, turns left and then goes even stranger.

Steve, sorry I have to agree with the others, except that I had to hold back from 'guffawing' so I could giggle in anticipation waiting for his next move. My daughter and I came out of his show exhilerated thatb it wasn't the usual stand up thing we come to accept and talked vigorously about the show for some time afterward. I am really disappointed I don't get to see his next show so my imagination can be taken places it rarely is these days. I think you have to completely let go if you attend his shows and let your natural instincts take over! Go everyone, he's fantastic!!!

Another idiotic review from this Chortle plonker. It's a great show.

Steve, I have just read your review and can't quite understand just how someone could miss the point by so far. I saw Dr Brown's show at the Fringe with five friends and we all thought it was one of the best shows we saw at the Fringe. The only other show that cam close was Russell Kane...and he won the Best Comedy Award this year. Dr Brown is a genius and its a shame that a lot of people may not go to see him because of your misguided review.

This is a 4 star show by any sense of imagination. Ignore the Chortle review, it is one of the most poorly judged ones I have read on this site.

Mr Steve, I thought he was brilliant. Dada at its best. Perhaps he's just not for you, but I'd recommend his show to anyone.

Mr Steve - I love Dr Brown with a passion that I usually reserve for strippers and crack whores - he is a genius - but maybe you need to be a happy low life to be able to recognise this?
