Description: Fringe veteran Jimmy Hogg arrives in Cincinnati to discuss his life of petty crime. Physical, fast-paced hilarious storytelling with a car crash and plenty of tangents. “Hold onto the arms of your seat: Hogg will take you spinning.” –Orlando Sentinel “His characterizations are spot on, and while the piece jumps from story to story-centering on a traumatic night out that ends with the threat of prison looming over the young narrator's head-Hogg juggles them like a trained master with three chainsaws and a flaming baton in the air.” -City Pages, Minneso ta. “Managing to fit so many entertaining characters, hilarious anecdotes, and witty pop-culture references into 60 minutes is a difficult test of endurance, a test Hogg passes with flying colours.” ***** (5 out of 5) Eye Magazine, Toronto. " Dickens would love this guy." –Orlando Sentinel. Best of Fringe- Victoria 2009, Toronto 2007, Minnesota 2007 & 2006, San Francisco 2006
