FRINGE REVIEW: Like Father Like Son? Sorry.

Fringe circuit veteran Chris Gibbs (Power of Ignorance, Antoine Feval) is back, this time with a stand-up comedy routine based on observations from his recent foray into parenthood.  Framing the play with a chillingly exaggerated (and somewhat serious) rendition of Superman's father’s parting words, the stand-up routine describes a myriad of funny and endearing parenting observations. Touching on subjects like child birth, when to lie, and how to be a good role model, Chris artfully weaves together a series of humorous parenting aphorisms.  While I can guarantee plenty of laughs throughout this 75-minute show, recent and more seasoned parents will likely appreciate the situational humor on a different level and should not miss this one.

Three out of five stars.
