Ingersoll is a fun amd interesting look at the writings of a now rarely heard of historical figure. It centers around his writings and opinions about religion. The actor/writer is clearly very passionate about the man Ingersoll and this shines through the entire performance. Its quite maddening so little has changed for society since the 1800s.... full review

I have to start out by saying, I had no intention of catching this show. I had not heard of Robert Ingersoll and was not in the mood for a History Lesson. Earnest won me over on the hard streets of the Fringe. Every time, the guy saw me he called me out by name. I can not resist kindness. I wish I could listen to Ingersoll speak today, tomorrow and everyday. His life, thoughts and writings are fascinating and contemporary. The mere idea that the Devil has gotten a bad rap in our minds and for what? Literally, what has the Devil done over the course of humanity that is worse that just one of the angry outbursts of God? Kearney's channels Ingersoll's spirit for just over an hour and his dialogue is just replete with thought provoking text... full review

Instead of these self-serving and megacorporation-serving talking heads blathering all over AM radio and endless tv channels and innumerable websites, WE ABSOLUTELY NEED a man like Bob Ingersoll back in the world to directly address the evils, the lies, the hypocrisy. Earnest's love for this man from recent history shines ever more brightly this year.... full review

Ingersoll speaks again was fascinating. First that such a prominent figure could be so forgotten in history. The acting was truly superb and spoken directly to the audience so it was as if we were in conversation with Ingersoll. The content was highly thought provoking and oddly contemporary. It brought to mind the ultra conservative religious right on the one hand, the lies of American politicians and on the other I wondered what my Christian African American friends would think and feel about such an outright attack on the Bible and Christianity. Even for myself who is not religious but spiritual (and there is a difference) the arguments were at times provoking like all good theater and at times just a wonderful cry for human justice.... full review

It was marvelous. Robert Ingersoll was famous in his time. And we got to sit in on one of his lectures. What was amazing is that though the words were actually written more than a hundred years ago, this talk on religion and politics could have been written yesterday, and felt particularly relevant to what is happening in this country today.... full review

I was amazed how ahead of his time Ingersoll was on so many issue (race, women's rights, religion, etc). The man would likely be considered radical if he lived today! Even more impressive was Kearney's portrayal. With a larger than life figure such as Ingersoll, it would be easy to seem a pale copy or to reduce the man to sound bytes. Kearney brings passion,wit and humanity in his writing and acting as Ingersoll giving him new life even in 2018. I was captivated from start to finish. In short: the subject was interesting, the delivery was wonderful, and there was not a dull moment to be found!... full review

Even with 379 or so competitors, Robert Ingersoll (1833-1899), as inhabited by Ernest Kearney, is clearly The Wittiest and Most Literate Star of this year's Fringe! This isn't the first time Mr Kearney has excavated History to recreate an unjustly forgotten giant of the mind, and it (hopefully) won't be the last. This is certainly The Best, though---or, at least, the hardest to top! An Hour (and then some) with Robert Ingersoll will introduce you to a literate contrary thinker of a century ago, from a time when public speaking was its own art form---and Mr Kearney, Ingersoll's interpreter, is a master of that, too! ... full review
