A man (Mike Fotis) sits down at a table and reads aloud, while a woman (Jen Scott) accompanies him on standup bass. In the hour that follows, we get to know about Fotis's Boy Scout past (including testicle punching), his extreme stress in crafting a new Fringe show without the aid of nicotine, and the destructive powerhouse that is his new puppy. Thrown together? Perhaps. But Fotis is developing into such a force as an observational storyteller, with ace timing and a gift for the devastating throwaway line, that it's easy to forgive him his procrastination—because he is hilarious.
