The Taming of the Poo

Brie Henderson

Show Information:

From the creator of Poops, I Did It Again, comes a new work of comedy that will, hopefully, not only hit home with a lot of people, but give them a reason to just laugh themselves silly for an hour of their lives. Everyone has a poop story. And if they say they don't, they are lying. This is a collection of totally true and totally hilarious tales of bathroom horror, submitted freely and willingly from all over, and performed by some of the finest talent KC has to offer.

    Good show! I was not sure what I was getting myself into based on the title, however, it made me feel empathy toward the storytellers…..AND it was engaging and entertaining. Kudos to the cast for their abilities to share their embarrassing stories in a humanistic manner. WELL worth the time (and potential risk:) to attend! Congrats!

    What can you really say about a “poo” show?

    I understand that the star of the show performed a similar show last year or the year before. She has plenty of charisma, but I got the impression that she used her best stories in the previous show. She told three stories, while the rest of the cast told one each.

    All in all, the show had moments and was fun. It was good enough to recommend even though some performances and energy levels were better than others. A good Fringe entry overall.

    Lots of laughs, the cast had great charisma, and the deliveries were solid and entertaining. We were engaged from start to finish, and Union Station is a great place to see a show. A fringe “must see”….as long as you aren’t embarrassed to hear about other people’s poop 😉

    Head’s up if you’ve never been to this venue: allot extra time for parking in the garage (there is a fee), as well as going downstairs for the theater.

    We all forget that at the end of the day we are humans. We all have embarrassing moments that we only talk about with our closest friends. This show is very relatable, funny and comforting. I highly recommend it.

    Favorite Fringe show so far. Both the flight attendant and the teenage boy had us in tears! Would highly recommend.

      Thank you so much Jena! I’m glad you both enjoyed it!

    I thought it was fabulous to be able to be in the company of other people who understood! Problematic Poop is not a topic welcomed in all circles. Yet for some, it is a dominating factor in our lives. I loved the show. I did have difficulty hearing the young girl…. voice a bit soft. AND I was startled by the fella in the audience requesting to tell a story! I wasn’t “sure” if that was planned or not! His story was hilarious as were all of them. Five stars for this one!

    Such a great, fun time! Kudos to Bree & her peeps!

    This show reminded me of The Vagina Monologues. It was funny and fun to watch!

    A great take on a “sequel” to Brie’s one-woman show from a couple of years ago. The only thing better than a person sharing stories of poop is a lot of people sharing stories about poop. It has a great heart and message trying to remind us that, like the book says, everybody poops. And some poops are more memorable and embarrassing than others. The laughs start out a bit awkward, but seemed to get more and more genuine as the show goes on and people seem to get past the “stigma.” I love shows that have an honesty to them. I don’t think you’re going to find a show that is much more honest than this one.

    Monologues of real life poop stories. It’s funny and well executed. That’s really all there is to the show (not a bad thing) and does what it intends well. Entertaining for sure, but don’t come looking for something deeper. Shout out to the young girl who performed: she killed it on stage.
