"Fringe Review: Dylan Gott Medicine Woman"

Nerd Alert!

Dylan Gott is full of beans. He’ll tell you so himself. But his story involves nudity, a basement apartment, and a hungry cat.

Dylan Gott: Medicine Woman is a 50-minute stand-up set at the Tarragon Solo Space at Toronto Fringe Festival. Dylan covers a range of topics including Bible Camp, his predilection for video games and UFC, anger management class, and losing his virginity at 23.

The word “creepy” makes it into the bulk of his jokes and indeed makes up the bulk of his schtick. Imagine The Family Guy’s Peter Griffin with a Bela Lugosi stare. Dylan Gott makes no apologies.

I am not a video gamer. I was not a nerdy boy. I am not interested in UFC and have no knowledge of UFC personalities.

What I could relate to were homemade VHS tapes and the storyline of 90s sitcoms as a vehicle for imparting relationship advice. Among my favourite jokes was Dylan piecing together the events of a drunken night through call logs and ATM chits.

Opening night of Dylan Gott: Medicine Woman had a sparse but generous audience of friends and family and a peppering of strangers. The times I could not relate to the jokes I spent listening to the crowd.

The row of young gentlemen behind me chuckled throughout. Dylan’s family, directly to my left, laughed loudest at the childhood memories. A young woman in the front cackled at the jokes about Dylan’s appeal (or lack thereof) to women.

Dylan’s is an austere set befitting a stand-up comedian: one microphone, one stool. I thought it strange at first that he would address a crowd in such a small space with a microphone. It was hardly noticeable once he began.

There was never a lull in audience appreciation and when Dylan thanked us for coming out, I was surprised at how quickly the time had passed.

A sucker for stories and story telling, I would love to see Dylan transform this stand-up set into a full-length solo show.

"Fringe 2012: Dylan Gott Medicine Woman"

Dylan Gott is a stand-up comic, and a pretty good one. As we mentioned in our Fringe preview, he’s been the opener for popular comics like Todd Barry and Brian Posehn. A full set of Gott’s stand-up is exactly what you’ll get at his Fringe show—no more, no less. His style of comedy is self-deprecating; he kicks off his opening by shuffling out on stage and explaining how his leg was broken when he was beat up by some kids recently. The entire performance is full of references to the ways his awkwardness gets him in trouble in public. He comes off as likeable, though this is not, as the program warns, a show for those disturbed by occasional foul language and sexual references. Look at it this way: paying for a ticket to see him at Fringe is considerably cheaper than paying to see him headline at Yuk Yuk’s. - See more at: http://torontoist.com/2012/07/dylan-gott-medicine-woman/#sthash.sGGmg75O.dpuf - The Torontoist
