So nobody can remember the name of the show, Behind Every Great Mariska Hargitay is a Great Kurt Fitzpatrick, and maybe that’s the point. A face you have undoubtedly seen if you ever watched TV but never heard, vaguely remembered. Kurt Fitzpatrick tells of being a background actor, an extra. A face seen, but never heard never identified. As #17, a background actor, he was the lowliest of lowlies on the set of each show. He humorously explores this unknown world with us as both a story teller and stand up comedian.
Kurt weaves in and out of various possible and implausible scenarios from his real and imaged life. I laughed. I enjoyed the show. And yet what was the script doing on the lectern. I felt most scenes were strong but left feeling it could be a bit more pulled together as a whole. With a little more polish this could be great.
Laughter, Strong Voice. Good timing. What a shame to waste it on all those years of being in the background.
