Andrew Frank: Cognitive Goof

Andrew Frank: Cognitive Goof is an hour of stand up comedy exploring the hilarity and profundity of perception, belief, identity, time, and space. Paradoxes, cognitive dissonance, and the slapstick of abstractions abound in this show. Frank's material and particular comedic perspective was cultivated over a decade of relentless touring of America's most religious and patriotic enclaves. The Bible Belt served as a fertile environment for this young comedic mind and also was the necessary force to propel him into the nomadic life of the wandering performer. In 2018 Frank took his hour to 148 cities, 10 countries, and was selected to perform in 7 festivals. Now the young comedian will perform at potentially the densest concentration of unbridled creativity and laughter that has ever existed: the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Fringe review: Andrew Frank: Macrocosm

He might have left his Christian upbringing far behind, but Andrew Frank isn’t quite done with it yet.
The Missouri-born stand up still farms his formative years in the Bible Belt for material, and if you’re easily offended by pointed, hilarious commentary on fundamentalist dogma then you might want to think twice about attending his Fringe show, Macrocosm.
If not, you’ll enjoy his riffing on plenty of religious topics, with lengthy side excursions into American politics, Anne Frank, climate change, science, and probably the smartest (and longest, no pun intended) dick joke you’ll ever hear.
Bring a calculator and brush up on your physics if you care to call him out on it. Frank is a witty man, trading obvious jabs for sly observations, cerebral quips, and machine gun spitted declarations on the morality of the western world, and he’s not above razzing the audience for missing or being slow on a punchline.
Stay sharp if you decide to interact with him, but definitely do not miss out. Click Here
