WES BORG

Thursday, August 3 - I love The Fringe and I like pushing my boundaries. I also love to laugh. I laughed out loud a lot in this event. He is a master of timing, has a beautiful voice, kept me totally engaged the whole time. I am a retired woman, wasn't sure I needed to see a play with a lot of swearing in it. So glad I did. (The swearing became incidental to the show). 5/5

Thursday, August 3 - Wes did a good job with his singing and entertaining. Would I see this show again? Probably not as the cursing just did not add to the performance but it was my friend's choice so I went and did mostly enjoy myself but the swearing did not add anything to the show so I'd not recommend that aspect of the show.

Monday, August 7 - "You gotta give it to a guy who, with his vintage credentials as one of the Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie and a “wife” no doubt gravid with all his sketch comedy awards, to breeze into our Potash Corp Festival and proceed outrageously to send up the Fringe’s (new) name! Wes Borg, the ultimate artful kibitzer, has the credentials and the ‘culot’ to carry this off with verve and vinegar . He even squeezes an extra ten minutes into his “set” by greeting his audience with a Tom Waits song and chatty bonhomie that lets him warm up some eager attendees to help him entertain with music and sing-along participation later in the show. This is classic Fringe Fare, full of humour just ‘skirting’ the vulgar, so to speak, but so engagingly performed that you can’t help laughing and forgiving this exuberant man-child playing with the F word in as many lyrics and shout-outs as he can fit in. So, for those of you who like a show that in the hands of a seasoned performer looks almost as though he is improvising and adjusting on the fly because of technical f*#%k-ups, be assured that he has a lot of hilarious material in his current travelling baggie. At his open invitation, if you join in heartily in the chorus of “You’re worse than Hitler” you may just get a rise from his ghostly surprise companion! “Puppetry of the what?” you say!

August 10 - If you want to laugh & have a fun half hour (actually more if you show up early), see this show. This was my first time seeing Wes Borg & wow does it show that he is a seasoned Fringe pro. He manages to be a bit rough around the edges, yet warm & skilled at putting the audience at ease & making us feel welcome & comfortable (even the few who were asked to join him on stage). In fact the entire play is a journey through Borg's life with a few touching moments. Of course these are frequently interrupted with irreverent musical interludes. Borg's songs are catchy & memorable - his voice is that of a "natural" singer. The language shock value was apparent on Preview Night, juxtaposed as it was to much milder fare, but here it feels completely genuine &, in fact, necessary. I won't miss an opportunity to see Borg in the future if we are fortunate enough to have him return to Saskatoon.
