A letter received from 14 years in the past. A date with doomsday. The end of a ten-year relationship and the start of your dream career. What would you do if you could find out what your teenage self-thought of your current life? Doomsday and other important dates is a show about accepting the person we are and the things that we have done, even the time we accidentally slapped a girl in the face with our man boob.
Narrative comedy of the highest calibre.★★★★1⁄2 - We Know Melbourne

★★★★ - Short Com
Anthony Jeannot is a raw sort of comedian. Naturally funny (very in fact) but unpolished. Despite being at least thirty, an adult by anyoneís estimation, he exudes a sense of modern youth like few acts Iíve ever seen. That would be the misanthropic kind of modern youth rather than the Instagram influencer kind, as his show makes clear.

Life Coach is a haunted house ride of millennial angst, philosophical in its own manic way, but with an endearing streak of optimism that steers it clear of defeatist or nihilistic. If it has a theme itís disillusionment, Jeannot ferrying his audience through his personal perspective on becoming an adult. While it has an almost microscopic focus on his own bizarre coming of age, for people in mine and his generation itís eerily familiar.

Jeannot himself is a huge presence, all expressive face and gesticulating limbs. As thoughtful as Life Coach is, itís intense exactly where it needs to be, as well as vulgar in all the right places to boot. Itís certainly not for everyone Ė Jeannotís finger is far too on the pulse for this to work as well for an older audience as it does for a younger. Thatís not to say that people over 40 need not apply, but Iíll put it this way: if you canít work social media then this probably isnít going to work for you. Nor is it particularly interested in popular culture, however. Aspiration is an enemy and anxiety is your only friend. This is a show about the existential crises of the twenty-somethings of today. Jeannot isnít the voice of a generation Ė who is for ours? What he does is articulate the anguish of growing up to find that your prospects are worse than your parents were and he does it whilst making you laugh a whole lot.

Itís tempting to say Jeannot is self-deprecating, but with ire flying in all directions, I think deprecating period is a better description. Not content to just wallow in negativity, however, he manages to make the bitter a little bit sweeter as he does it.

Grim, sharp, hilarious, and a great Fringe debut. Thereís graft to be done for Anthony Jeannot, but heís working with a lot of raw material.
