Fringe review: What Happened to Jeff?

There's twisted and then there's this show.

Posted By on Sat, Sep 12, 2009 at 8:48 PM

Jeff Onore is one weird dude. His one-man show So What About Jeff is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I like twisted. I like dark. But his mind is twisted and dark in ways that I can’t comprehend. His delivery is flat and measured, so that it takes a moment to process what you hear. Did he really just say he slept with a monkey? Is it even possible to have feelings for a robotic baby? Crayons as a snack? Please, no! This show is an excellent reminder to never judge a book by its cover. The guy across from you may look like a boring businessman, but for all you know, he’s conjuring up images of monkey love and robotic baby butts.

Correction: In the initial blog post of this review, we mistakenly called the show What About Jeff?. The proper title is What What Happened to Jeff?. The Coast regrets the error.
