Calendar: TOBINCON at Fringe Encores!

July 12, 2019


Actor and comedian Tobin Mitnick sheds light on three con men that are using their style-savvy to manipulate a generation of young Americans through the unregulated Wild West that is the Internet. In its world premiere, one-man comedy TOBINCON dives into the grotesque and hilarious world of online grifters—the Body Prophet, the Rhetorical Bad Boy, and the Compassionologist—with sketch and stand-up, in order to show us that the game may have changed, but the players are all still here. But Mitnick also answers a lingering question: When you spend so much time rubbing shoulders with these types, will it rub off on you? In other words, can you con yourself? TOBINCON is an uproarious—and wildly personal—journey into a new world of charlatans. WINNER: Pick of the Fringe WINNER: Hollywood Fringe Encores! Producers Award. 45 Minutes.
