Tangi Colombel at Elgin Fringe Festival
In a Fringe World of queer-positive art, it's refreshing to see an act that dares to trip your trigger with old school humor, piano bar classics and a necktie.
Tangi Colombel is l'Amiricain en Miami in "Pardon my French," an hour-long cabaret show filled with music, light comedy and a captivating French accent that reminds you of everything you've ever seen in a movie set in a 1960's Parisian bar, complete with piano accompaniment.
Colombel is sweet and funny, and seems honest in his patter poking fun of French stereotypes. He might trample a little on your wokeness, but you'll forgive him because he's so cute and well, he's French!
Vraiment il se vend ... mais il est une bonne affaire ... pour seulement dix dollars!
This show is Frenchie and Fringey as hell. Come laugh and sing along with l'Amiricain! Saturday at 6pm or Sunday at 4:30pm upstairs at Elgin Public House.
