FRINGE REVIEW: Happy Whackin' Jim McCrackin

The Accidental Humour Co. is back with Happy Whackin’ Jim McCrackin, an action flick that starts on the big screen and spills out onto the stage of the Edmonton Fringe Festival.  William Bamfield is disenchanted hit man Jim McCrackin, knocking your socks off with the paring knife launcher hidden up his sleeve.  Cliff Kelly is a genius at splitting his personality as he plays identical twins Bradley and Steven Bishop – one a gin-soaked detective, the other simply caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. And Amanda Blair is cool and collected as Victoria, a woman who knows how to get what she wants and isn’t afraid to hold your mother as collateral.  McCrackin is out to finish his last job if he can only get over his irrational fear of felines; Victoria is out to get even and willing to call in the ninjas.  You’ll be swept away by stellar special effects and multimedia like none you’ve ever seen at the Fringe.  From start to finish, this show kept me on the edge of my seat.  Don’t miss it.

Five out of five stars.
