Tomatoes Tried To Kill Me But Banjos Saved My Life






Theatre, Festivals

An important, inspiring, motivational and FUN show that has touched the hearts of many an accidental procrastinator and highly driven executives alike. Former Chief Executive and company director (who once ran a company that outperformed Yahoo) and current rare Banjo enthusiast Keith Alessi, himself a recovering executive (and cancer survivor, pilot, lover of tomatoes, player of banjos, mentor, Fringe hero, and more...) has re-invented himself as a modern storyteller, and has quickly become a beloved and fierce force on the Fringe Festival on it's tour across Canada.

In this traditional yet somehow unorthodox one man show, Keith addresses his audience with a wholesome and encouraging warmth (and impressive Banjo skills) as he tells his true-life story... about Evil Tomatoes and Heroic Banjos, a diagnosis, putting off learning to play (and perform) the banjo... and more...

This is a show about choices, about how we face the and overcome obstacles in our lives. A pure joy to watch this performer enjoying himself on stage.

* Writing and performing this show is a bucket wish-list item for Keith!!*
He's showing us a GREAT TIME!
