The Bike Trip

Created by Martin Dockery

    Wow!! Martin is an amazing, story teller. His energetic, animated style takes you on an autobiographical journey that is exciting, humorous and quite a “trip”. Don’t miss it. Tell your friends.

    High energy, funny, thought provoking… Hop on a bike and take a ride with Martin while he intimately shares his experience on LSD in real time, whatever that is. This is what the fringe is all about. Not to be missed, a real gem!

    I loved this show! Martin is full of surprises. He has a great story to tell and, fortunately for the audience, he is a great storyteller. I loved the twists and turns in the narration and the mind-bending aspects as well. Don’t miss it! Also the Fringe Festival will only thrive if we welcome performers from elsewhere and attend their shows.

    Martin is very energetic and agile. He is a good story teller. My only criticism is that I thought it was a bit too long.

    Brilliant performer – Martin is a powerhouse on stage and will make you laugh until your face hurts while both intentionally and inadvertently sprinkling insights regarding the human condition throughout.

    If you can only see one show at the Fringe this year – make it this one!

    FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE! Martin has a tremendous ability to take the audience on his journey – we sense his every perception. The show’s humor allows us to laugh not only at the versatile performer, but as an extension – at ourselves. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHOW!

    I’ve seen six other shows so far at the Fringe this year and “Bike Trip” is still my favorite. I feel privileged not only to have seen Martin perform, but also to have experienced the grace and elegance he brought to the audience-talent interaction. At some point–and it’s interesting that I can’t remember if it was when he was hanging out with us before the show or in the show itself–he says that the play will communicate something of the psychedelic experience, and I can attest that he does … somehow. As someone who has used my own personal stories for my art, I felet alternately intimidated and inspired, and I know the inspiration part will last. But I will never ever ever ever be able to use my body the way Martin so effortly does in service to his monologues. Wow.

    Martin is an incredible and unique performer that you do not want to miss! if you are so lucky to have him in your town you should make it a priority to go see him! Captivating, hilarious, deep, and beautiful, this shiw is a perfect mix of absurd, sincere, existential, and down to earth simplicity. it made me excited to be part of the human experience!

    The various stories are woven together well, & there is an aspect of vulnerability that comes through that is touching.
