Press articles

Phil Burgers' workshops are a hit with fellow comedians

His award-winning show Befrdfgth grew organically out of these lessons, specifically an exercise where "you have nothing", the Californian explains. "I just thought, 'Well, if I'm making these people do it, I should probably see if it works for me.'"

The award-winning physical comedian is also performing his Because, Becaves and Befrdfgth shows.

Doctor Brown's new show, Bexperiments, will be created over seven eight hour-long shows throughout the course of one day, with each show taking the best of the last and culminating in a completed eighth show. Audiences can attend as many of the shows as they like or make a day of it and see all eight.

Doctor Brown is the stage persona of award winning US comedian and mime artist Philip Burgers. For his 2010 show, Because, he was awarded The Sunday Times Best Newcomer 2010, Top Ten Pick of the Fringe 2010 and nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for Most Original Comedy 2010; a title for which he was also nominated for Becaves in 2011.

Befrdfgth, his 2012 offering, earned a Total Theatre Innovation Award, and has become an international sensation, with sell-out runs in Australia, London, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Prague, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, New York, Toronto, Dubai and Hong Kong.
