Meet The Fringepig Team...Mister Kipper

Mister Kipper is Fringepig’s publisher and voice of reason.

Early in the morning Mister Kipper will be in the office, adding swine-points to scathing reviews and changing the word ‘cunt’ to ‘regrettable fellow’.

For Mister Kipper, journalistic balance in our articles is paramount and the job of reviewer reviewing is a noble one done for the public good. Whenever someone asks him “Who made you the king of everything?” he replies “God did”. He’s not even joking. Mr Kipper has frequent ecstatic visions.

As our publisher and benefactor, Mister Kipper tries to keep the others in line.
But he can’t be everywhere.

If Mister Kipper wrote all the reviews this website would be quite boring.
