Note: This review is from the 2019 Fringe

Colt Cabana and John Hastings Do Comedy and Commentary to Bad Wrestling Matches – boasting the longest and most literal show name of the Fringe – is back for the seventh consecutive year, and it is exactly what you’d expect: Colt Cabana (professional wrestler) and John Hastings (comedian) making fun of bad wrestling. Every single show is different. Each night provides different clips (admittedly, these are usually shown in a terrible resolution) for the audience to laugh at. Audiences can expect anything from the world of wrestling to pop up.

Starting off the show, both men introduce themselves and the show before moving on to the reception it’s had and the reviews it has garnered, laughing at the fact they legitimately got a four star review earlier in the Fringe.

After this the night’s special guest is introduced as Emmy Blotnick, who also has a show at the Fringe. The guests change night to night with their knowledge of wrestling landing anywhere between knowing nothing at all and being overly passionate on the subject. The differing levels of knowledge bring a whole new level of hilarity to the show.

The trio then take the next hour to pick through the most ludicrous moments in wrestling history. All three show off their brilliant comedic chops, as well as Colt and John’s impressive knowledge of wrestling. Colt Cabana and John Hastings Do Comedy and Commentary to Bad Wrestling Matches allows those who already find wrestling ridiculous a chance to laugh at it, and a chance for those who love it to see the funny side of it all.
