Bliss assumes a character who is a confident author exploring different forms of writing. Meanwhile he invites audience participation in a variety of literary exercises. His reading of the first chapter of his sexy and comic novella had us all laughing after each paragraph.


So far, this was the 20th most enjoyable show of the 84 have seen at the Fringe this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website: https://fringefan.com/

Ruddy hell!! Chrissy bliss is always one of my favs to see at the fringe and this year did not disappoint. A very clever and silly slice of character comedy that had me howling with laughter. Put this show at the top of your list!

A great piece of character comedy - I was recommended by a friend and Chris Bliss did not disappoint. His writing was sharp and silly, loved his responses to the crowd and the time flew. We had a great time!

Bliss is a new name to me and I can only regret that it’s taken me this long to encounter him. He’s that rarest of things, a brilliant character comedian… and a literary genius to boot.
