Sweet Venues – Apex Hotel
7th – 20th August @ 7pm
Material: Delivery: Laughs:
Within the walls of The Apex Hotel in a small dark room there are a cluster of chairs awaiting the arrival of the unsuspected audience for the fabulous and flamboyant Bentley Browning’s “Tinder Rehab”. With loneliness at an all time high (according to some people), there couldn’t have been a better time to land at the 70th Edinburgh Fringe with a show on how to find Love. With more people taking to online dating nowadays, Bentley would like to educate you in the art of online seduction or as some may call it, match-making. With an over excited and zestful audience, Bentley starts to take us on his journey of love and laughter. Tapping into the emotional areas of the human spirit he unleashes an avalanche of side-splitting jokes. Like a worm on the end of a fishing hook, he tempts and teases you with intimate questions about your sexuality and availability.We know where this is going !!!
“Tinder Rehab” is a show of comedy sketches and stand up. Delivered in a smooth, fun way you, feel the days stresses suddenly disappear, like a puff of smoke they are gone. To think he could have been a priest on Tinder looking for S.P.E.R.M. but thankfully he decided to entertain us at this year Fringe instead. Be aware, this show brings you into the act, quite literally. A single woman having her deepest dirtiest thoughts monitored and read out, a couple looking for love and me, a mime actor getting ready to go on a date. Genuis !!!!! Interactive shows are great and audiences always want to feel part of it, nothing better than being put on the spot. We have all experienced hurt, pain and disappointment in relationships, so allow Bentley Browning and his Tinder Rehab show to tickle you where you have never been tickled before. You may laugh, scream, chuckle, sneer or even cry but one thing is for sure, you will find love after this show. Well scripted, delivered and preformed this is a wee gem of a show and should not be missed.
