@AnestiDanelis musical comedy at @Toronto_Fringe is wonderfully weird, very funny, and full of goats.

#FringeTO Tweet Review - ANESTI DANELIS: SIX FRETS UNDER brings strong musical comedy, with a wide range of instruments in a cozy yet packed room. @AnestiDanelis is so earnest, brings on the funny lyrics, and wins over the audience. #EdFringe2019

#Edfringe Show Alert!
Fantastic Free Fringe available, including the talent that is @AnestiDanelis performing #sfanwo at @HanoverTap . Despite one of his guitar strings breaking, the music and comedy was on point! Well worth a visit! @TheFreeFringe #intotheunknown

Wonderful 3-day jolly to @edfringe Particular delight to take a chance on Free Festival musical comedian @anestidanelis and discover a gem! Hilarious, talented, charming, Canadian. His show Songs For A New World Order #sfanwo has an extra week. See it before he goes back to Canada!
