Chris Gibbs has been unqualified for many jobs… he was an overweight acrobat, a private school English teacher whose only qualification was a British accent, and a Titanic Museum re-enactor fired after one day for ‘adding a few jokes’.

History
The show premiered at the 2009 Toronto Fringe Festival, where it won Patron's Pick. It then played to sell-out houses at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival (and would have won the best of fest, apparently, but Chris had to go to Just For Laughs. Just saying.) He was later invited to perform it at the 2010 Next Stage Theatre Festival, and then in the 2010 Uno Festival.
