Steve Bugeja – Summer Camp 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 09, Aug 2017
Steve Bugeja is a very personable comedian who can write and tell a story like the best of them and the particular tale he is showcasing this year was back in 2009 when as an eighteen year old he worked for a summer at Round Lake Camp in the USA, a camp that is designed specially for kids with autism.
Bugeja relates the endearing and funny story introducing all the major players fellow councillors Tom, Lara and Hobbsy and a few of the campers especially CJ his particular charge. But is Steve being totally altruistic?
With the aid of a few photos and the excellent writing and a not insignificant acting talent, he brings all the characters to life and they become almost tangible as the piece unfolds. This involves many a slip, a little heart break, a disappointment or two and notable success in the case of CJ.
This is not laugh a minute stuff but there are plenty of laughs, a dose of pathos and a bit of ahhh factor throughout and it is really a very pleasing way to spend a Fringe hour.
