Quite possibly the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life! The greatest story ever told! These are the words I use to describe this one of a kind, true story. Presently with hilarious perfection by Dean and Victor. I've seen it twice and I think it actually got funnier the second time around!...
I've seen this show three times now over the years and it's still one of the funniest live shows I've ever seen. Dean Cameron and Victor Isaac are flat out awesome. I could stop there because if funny is what you're after, see this show. Easy. But this show is much more than a guy goofing off on the internet with some criminal overseas.
This show is an exercise in the delivery of justice.
Stay with me.
Keep in mind, the whole show is the reading of an email exchange between Cameron and an actual Nigerian scammer. It's real. This happened.
At the top of the show, Cameron reminds us that these scammers really are very bad people. By allowing this scammer to continue thinking he'd got a live one, Cameron draws out not only the Ni...
At the intersection of Epic Trolling and Life As Performance Art lies "Nigerian Spam Scam Scam." An exciting, escalating story about African internet con artists being conned in return by a character actor with too much time on his hands, featuring an ending that will drop your jaw when it drops the mic, and make you jump to your feet with applause. See it. Believe it. Love it. I did. ...
I had seen this show ten years ago. Always remembered the many, many laughs it gave me. Dean Cameron gives a delightful performance of his real experience. Still funny, after all these years!...
Nigerian Spam Scam Scam was awesome and hysterical. There is clearly something wrong with Dean Cameron as he says in the beginning, we see the part of him "only his therapist understands". But you will be thankful for his insanity as you travel down his road of madness; watching him do what you know you've imagined doing. The twists and turns and delights that occur through out this retelling of ACTUAL EVENTS will leave you with several "Oh My God, that did not happen" moments. Thank you Dean Cameron for living this out on behalf of all of us. And additional kudos to the other half of Spam Scam Scam, Victor Isaac for all the humanity he gives the Nigerian side...I actually started to sympathize for him! And last but certainly not least, to ...
Nigerian Spam Scam Scam is a must see. Having seen it in 2008, I have been keeping an eye out for years for an opportunity to see it again. Imagine my thrill when I saw that I had the chance to finally see it again!
I will tell you that 8 years later, this piece held up in every way imaginable.
It opens with a laugh and then hits you every 30 seconds with laugh after laugh on top of laugh for well over an hour. Dean and Victor clearly enjoy doing this and it's a joy to watch them play off each other.
It's also the kind of thing you see and then want nothing more than to find more of your friends to bring for their first time.
Thank you for hosting this performance and hopefully word spreads during the run and the show can find itself...
If you've ever wondered who was on the other end of the email communication you've received from a Nigerian prince with $30 million dollars to get out of the country (or dozens of similar scams), this show gives you an amazing and hilarious insider's view. It takes you through both sides of the communication as the "scammee" (Dean Cameron) eventually gets one over on the scammer (Victor Isaac). Both performers are top-notch, and the story moves at a brisk pace, delivering laughs by the truckload along the way. Definitely worth adding to your Fringe "must see" list!...
Loved this show.
I loved the idea of the true story of a Nigerian Scam coming to life on stage. I always receive their emails, yet to see the response, in how I would have loved to respond, come to life! I am now looking forward to receiving those emails. I will now know how to respond. I loved the ending. I laughed and clapped hardy.
Dean Cameron brought us into his demented, comical, genius mind in replying to the Nigerians. Victor Isaac was lovely as the Nigerian. Victor was dead on as I would have imagined a Nigerean to be: calculating; planning; stoic, even so focused to transfer themselves as a woman. All in the quest to drain Americans or the weak and greedy of their life savings.
A great pre-dinner must see. Go se...
First: full disclosure--Dean Cameron is a family member, my son-in-law to be precise. Still...listen to me....I have seen this show quite a few times and each time it is better than the time before. And it started out really good! But what is that to all of you seeing it for the first time? Just let me tell you that Dean and Victor are a delight and the story is so wonderfully funny and strange. Personally, it makes me giggle that weird stuff like this actually happens. I find the show interesting, funny, delightful, precise, clean, economical---and these are all good things in my book. And by 'precise' I mean that if someone raises an eyebrow, we in the audience know what that eyebrow is saying....
