A cool soundbite...

One annual fringe-goer said, "It's the most intelligent show at the Fringe!" Thank you English gent from Bristol.

Top Joke at The Fringe

Hey look!
Jeff's got one of the top 10 funniest jokes at the Fringe.
Didn't even know he was in the running, or would've made everyone vote. Oh well, they got the ending wrong anyhoo...
Cool for me.

p.s. so close to the finish line...

"The Americans" gets press, too

"The cast are all very good... the story is an entertaining one and there are a lot of very funny moments as the family take us through recent American history... This is the show to see especially if you’re a fan of programmes such as The Daily Show." - The Groggy Squirrel

"... smart observations about our thirst for technology, and an excellent send-up..." - Fest Magazine

Bragging time...

Kate Copstick is considered the Ben Brantley of comedy critics here in the UK... which is really the only place they care enough about the art to critique it, so... do the math.

Here's what she had to say about Jeff's show in today's Scotsman:

"Jeff Kreisler is a heavy hitter – he has won the Bill Hicks Spirit Award and looks like George Clooney, but sweatier. His hour holds some of the smartest political material around. One of the things that makes Kreisler fascinating is his unashamed love for America; he just hates what has been done to it. The final section, involving Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney and Rohypnol may be the most powerful description of the past few years of US history you'll hear....
"... slick, political sharp-shooting..."

Thanks Kate.

Pick up today's Scotsman...

That's Kreisler! Big pic, nice article, fold right at the crotch.
