Dr Brown Because
Visual and surreal comedy absurdist Dr Brown arrives at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe with the hit international show Dr Brown Because. A largely wordless act of absurdist mime and downright uncomfortable weirdness, the show may or may not involve handcuffs, olives, board games, dancing, sunscreen and a transvestite. Leaving audiences delightfully bewildered, Dr Brown goes strange places, turns left and then goes even stranger.
