Handicap, schmanicap. People with a disability are certainly not always weak, victims and they can speak for themselves. Maybe they can even be heroes.Two Dutch comedians, Marijn and Sem, will take you on an origins story, about the need to be perfect, politics, the silliness of the world and how we are all eventually imperfect.
On the 17th of June, we will Pre-Premiere our comedy show The Guardians of Imperfection
The first 30 tickets will have an early bird discount price of 8 euros, rest of presale tickets will be 11 euros and tickets at the door will go for 13 euros.
Directed by: Eline Henrotte.
Script & performance: Marijn de Vries and Sem Bannenberg
Sem Bannenberg and Marijn de Vries from the Netherlands have a handicap. They are funny. And they have a real disability as well (Sem has CP and Marijn has MS). But having a disability doesn’t stop them trying to be superheroes. Hanging on the couch and eating crisps all day is fun, but playing Fringe is their way of showing a handicap only goes so far. They want to leave the audience crippled with laughter, while also giving them something to think about.
See us at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe:
16-27th of August
11:30 PM Mockingbird
Written/performed: Marijn de Vries & Sem Bannenberg

Inspired by Star Wars and superheroes these two Dutch comedians return to Fringe to analyze the past, present and future of disabilities. They realize they are no longer Guardians, but Prophets of Imperfection. Fighting for an honest place in society (with or without crisps) things take an unexpected turn in this second part of their trilogy about living with a disability. Crisps or respect, what would you choose?
The script is largely written, the first material has been tested…
Captain Cane and Brace Boy have started rehearsals for the show with director Eline Henrotte.
Captain Cane & Brace Boy action figures are not (yet) available, those are awesome design and editing skills from Harm Rieske & Anne Rosenberg.
Most impertantly Tickets are on sale now:
This is the first log in which I, Captain Cane, will inform you of everything Captain Cane and Brace Boy and our show Prophets of Imperfection. But let me start by wishing you all a happy and prosperous 2018! I for one am very excited about this year, for we will play Prophets of Imperfection (or just Prophets or PoI for that matter) on the Edinburgh Fringe. We will play a venue more in the center, so we can hopefully attract more people. We will only play one week, so if you want to see us play in Edinburgh, keep visiting this site and you will be completely informed.
Second, I was issued by Brace Boy to tell something about Prophets. Let me say at this point we have a general outline and subjects we want to address, but we will be working on our script ‘till the end of January. So not much to say about this, besides that it’s going to be awesome. What else would you expect from your favorite crippled superheroes?
That’s it for now, but stay tuned for more CC & BB goodness. You know you want it!
