Normally not a fan of 1-person shows, I am thrilled I made a concession for this. It is hysterical, incredibly dark, authoritative and hypnotic. ... full review

Such a funny, dark, original and edgy story - told masterfully as a solo performance. Truly one of my favorite things I've ever seen at Fringe.... full review

Last year, Mitchell Bisschop’s reworking of Madison Avenue icons into the Citizen Kane homage of I Can Hear You Now, demonstrated he was writer/performer of both talent and a sterling comic sensibility. This year’s Pit of Goblins reveals a far more twisted aspect to Bisschop. A writer/performer of talent, yes; just one you may not want to leave your children alone with.... full review

Mitchell Bisschop is awesome! 3 clearly defined characters. That's all he needed to create one of the most interesting, tightest, wildly entertaining shows I've seen at this years fringe festival. Years from now I will reference this show...thats how good it was. ... full review

This is a delightfully dark comedic piece from the equally dark and disturbed mind of Mitchell Bisschop. It follows. the story of a serial killer in a small town and revolving around a Pit of Goblins. ... full review

This show was so funny, so dark and so deep. It takes a very talented writer and actor to make you feel empathy for sinister characters and Mitch succeeded in this task. I highly recommend this show!... full review

A wonderfully dark comedy about sacrifice and belonging. Grotesque and bizarre, but never gratuitous. A really fun night out.... full review

This show is FANTASTIC. Definitely one of my favorites of the 2019 Fringe Festival. "Dark comedy" is a term that's thrown around a lot, and Pit of Goblins takes the phrase all the way to the very edge... and then pushes it into a pit. (yes of goblins). This show has genuine laughs and times that were so sad the audience didn't know what to do, and it all worked perfectly. From the opening moments where the main character is dragging a body out into the woods to speak to his therapist, I knew I was in for a different type of show. ... full review

Pit of Goblins is a must see! Funny, disturbing and a fantastic soundtrack. Mitchell is either a genius or in terrible need of therapy, either way you want to watch.... full review
