One Man, One Mystery, No Clue. In 2005, Chris Gibbs premiered this one-man comedy play about Victorian London’s most overlooked detective at the Winnipeg Fringe. It won Best of Fest. Now, after 14 years, over 120 performances, a new title, one sequel, at least 37 new jokes and one Steven Spielberg movie, he's bringing the show back. “Clueless, guileless and absolutely priceless.” - Edmonton Journal “Gibbs’s performance is near flawless. His martini-dry wit is characteristically sharp, and his comic timing is beautiful.”- CBC

Not Quite Sherlock

Chris Gibbs—Rio – Portage Place

I am somewhat stunned that it was all the way back in 2005 that Chris Gibbs brought the original version of this show, then called Antoine Feval, to the Winnipeg Fringe. He has not lost his touch as he still keeps the audience laughing (a lot) with his masterful and often punchy word play. The story follows main character Barnaby Gibbs, who is almost completely clueless and very naive, and who has been taken in by a criminal who pretends to be a great detective in order to cover up his crimes. Gibbs easily moves between the various characters and it is a fun story with a great ending.
