“[A]n after-dark, NSFW twist on the tradition of getting around the fire and getting scared!”
Excerpt from press release:
Uncle Tommy’s Campfire Ghost Stories (for Grown-Ups) is an after-dark, NSFW twist on the tradition of getting around the fire and getting scared. An outdoor, site-specific one-man Fringe show, taking place in the backyard of FIKA Café in Kensington Market. Audience members are invited to pull up a blanket or log and join Uncle Tommy on a dark and twisted journey with his collection of inappropriate tales. Audience members are also invited to NOT feed/touch/ share needles with Uncle Tommy. The venue, FIKA Cafe, will be selling campfire inspired goodies and refreshing beverages to enjoy during the show for a full campfire experience.
Writer/Performer Tommy Taylor’s previous award-winning one-man show had him touring across Canada telling a different kind of scary story- The 2013 national tour of You Should Have Stayed Home: A G20 Romp! detailed Taylor’s arrest and detention at the infamous Toronto G20 Summit. “I thought this year I’d tell a different kind of scary story. More spooky ghosts, less horrific accounts of human rights abuses.” said Taylor.
