Fringe Haiku: The Sixth Borough

Posted July 14th, 2009

Ah yes, haiku. Has it really all been downhill since Basho? Probably. But that’s part of why we’ve asked our Fringe artists to send us poems about their shows, so we can rectify the situation.

Allow me to introduce The Sixth Borough, who won audience and judges awards at Chicago’s Snubfest last month. They’ve got a show at Helium next Wednesday, an event on Friday, July 24 to raise funds for a trip to the Milwaukee Comedy Festival, and their comedy show Timejawn will run for four nights at Connie’s Ric Rac during the Philly Fringe.

So: from Corey Cohen of The Sixth Borough…

Time travel would rule
Imagine a robot fart
It goes on like that
