Theatre: First Day Off in a Long Time

Written and performed by Brian Finkelstein
For Fringe World
Blue Room until Feb 22

There can’t be a tougher gig in comedy than writing for US talk shows; every line is genetically modified, every set up is massaged like Kobe beef, every punch line goes under an electron microscope. If you haven’t got it, every time, your career can be nasty, brutish and short.
Brian Finkelstein swims in those shark-infested waters (The Moth, Ellen DeGeneres, Conan O’Brien), and the fact that he’s come out alive, with both his humanity and sense of humour intact, is a testament to the guy.
