Ben Target In Discover Ben Target (Ben Target / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

Ben Target offers something unlike any comedy I’ve ever seen. Emerging on stage in a rabbit hat with a bulging midriff, his first move is to introduce himself to each member of the audience personally for three rows. The next forty minutes is as off-the-wall as the first five minutes, as Target surprises you at every turn with his deadpan humour and bizarre props. This show eschews all the conventions of comedy that you would expect from one man on a stage, and as a result is a delight to watch. The finale leads you out of the venue entirely, so pack an umbrella in case of inclement weather. This is certainly an experience like no other.

Bannermans, 17 – 27 Aug, 1.45pm (2.45pm), free, fpp47.
