Tragically weird. Unnecessarily sexual. Two Cats on a Date is exactly what it sounds like. And then much worse. A high-energy solo show in which one woman plays two cats whose romantic dinner kaleidoscopes into a world of inter-generational regret.

Absolutely loved it. One of my favorite shows I saw at Fringe and totally unexpected and fun. Griffin is really impressive and hilarious.

Fantastic show, sure it begins with two cats on a date, which would be worth the money alone, but it then becomes so so much more. Must see, deserving of all the praise its getting

Whatever you're expecting, it will be different! This is weird but very good and funny. Probably the most memorable show I'll see this Fringe.

Also Kudos to Griffin for being extremely active in a hot room in a tight fitting outfit for an hour without getting sweaty hair!!

Saw it in LA. One of the strangest, most surprising funniest things you'll see. It beggars description, but Griffin Kelly displays so much talent, of the weirdest kind, flying off in all directions. Wit, language, character work, social and psychological commentary, silliness, mayhem, audience participation, energy and did I mention silliness to the nth degree. Seh's bound to be a star or a fugitive or both. I can't recommend it highly enough. You can't describe it, but it is profane, crunchy and delicious.

The play is exactly as advertised and then becomes so much more. An incredibly physical & surprisingly emotionally hard hitting show.

This is a fantastic funny show that begins with two cats dating but it takes us all into a cats world full of all sorts of hilarious goings on and from the first meow the whole audience was in complete fits of laughter as the story develops and it does but includes audience participation that gets even funnier as the shows story goes on as 3 audience members play 3 of the cats as the artist whom runs the show gives them hilarious instructions so go to see this great show as you will not be disappointed but you will leave smiling and laughing knowing just how great a show this is and it comes highly recommended

I've been coming to this festival for over a decade and two cats on a date ranks among the best ever shows I've seen here. Hysterical, dramatic and endlessly inventive, learn as little as you can and buy tickets immediately.

My favorite show of fringe. It’s hilarious, it’s great for ANYONE (ok, maybe not young kids) and it’s so strange. If you’re looking for an elevated, slapstick, clowny, weirdly emotional adventure, you must see two cats on a date. Griffin and Andrew are geniuses, creating an absolutely immersive, extremely weird world.

Completely brilliant. We could not have begun to guess, from the entirely successful 'are you cat people?' flyering, what we were going to see. Impossible to describe so just ago and see it - it's got to be the best thing we've seen at the Fringe. Didn't stop laughing for an hour.
