Gossamer Obsessions by Paul Blinov and Amy Shostak is a surreal sketch comedy experience. The sketches feel vaguely familiar like something you may have overheard in a dream. The script is excellently crafted and continually delights in its mutability and labyrinthine nature. The show combines sketch comedy and improvisation, taking suggestions from the audience. There was even a rhyming section.
This is my favourite Fringe show thus far. It turned night into day. Every time I thought I knew what the joke was, I didn't know what the joke was and was pleasantly surprised. It may be a bit weird, but if you can put up with that, you will definitely enjoy this show.
Gossamer Obsessions is playing at the Revue Stage 6 - 16 September as part of the 2018 Vancouver Fringe Festival.
