«I grew up in a very Catholic Italian family. I spent an entire life pretending to be a good altar boy. Actually I’m still pretending. Please, don’t tell my parents i play this show.»

A standup show about emotional conflicts. Daniele Fabbri is not so interested in God or Church, but he tells jokes and stories about his Italian catholic childhood, his current troubles with his family, and about how people tend to hide their real feelings, just to not disturb the community ones.

Daniele Fabbri is an Italian comedian from Rome, writer and screenplayer. He has been doing standup since 2008. Works in most important Italian TV Comedy Shows. Wrote the satirical comic series “Jesus: The Trilogy”, and “Quando C’era LVI” about the return of Mussolini.

News and Reviews for this Show

August 4, 2017 The Girl With the Edinburgh Tattoo
Can anyone remember when the stereotypical Italian twin obsessions were food and music? Anyone who knows Italians of a younger vintage though will confirm it’s religion and sex. Well… maybe that’s more an Italians on The Fringe thing. And Daniele Fabbri is no exception.

Daniele is a welcome addition to the impressive roster of Italian talent which has graced the Free Fringe in recent years. As for the title – I wouldn’t say particularly shy – he’s a confident performer who was unfazed by the smallish audience (an occupational hazard due to a noon start in a venue off the usual beaten Old Town track). And if the epithet of antichrist conjures up the image of a head-spinning, vomiting demon – you’re going to be disappointed on that count too.

What we do get are tales of a disconnect with his parents, an early obsession with Michael Jackson and the forced purchase of a Papal fanzine. The separate strands being brought together in a neat conclusion.

There are only two more shows left in this very short run so you’ll have to be quick if you want to sample an early lunch of skewered and barbecued Catholic faith with no guilt offered! Click Here
