Guess what the luckiest number is!!?? Two? No. Three? Ludicrous. Seven??? Old news.
IT’S FOUR. FOUR IS THE BEST ONE.
Welcome to our FOURTH season of comedy in partnership with our best friggin’ friends, the Gas Station Arts Centre. We’re expanding our season this year from three shows to five, and we are #jamped about this lineup! Read on for the hawt deets.
OUTSIDE JOKE & THE DND IMPROV SHOW- Saturday, October 31, 8pm
Join us on Halloween to kick of off our FOURTH season of comedy, with special spooky guests, The DnD Improv Show! The first half will feature an improvised musical from Outside Joke, and in the second half, an epic, bloody adventure from The DnD Improv Show. Better yet, the show will wrap up in time for you to run off to the other costume parties and apple-bobbing festivals you have scheduled. Come in costume and we’ll knock a few bucks off your ticket price!
OUTSIDE JOKE & CRUMBS- Friday, December 18, 8pm
A holiday tradition! Join us for our second annual LIVE SECRET SANTA with our improv uncles, CRUMBS. Watch as we exchange actual surprise Secret Santa gifts onstage (tree and all) and do scenes inspired by the loot received. Warm your heart, warm your mind, warm your bellies with chuckles!
OUTSIDE JOKE & FOLK LORDZ- Saturday, February 20 8pm
We are so pleased and humbled to present Folk Lordz, an electric improv comedy, folk storytelling duo from Edmonton, Alberta. Their unique improvisational style is one part Indigenous origin story, one part Russian Chekhovian character drama, and one part fresh cultural genre, taken from audience suggestion at every performance. From the world famous, Canadian Comedy Award winning Rapid Fire Theatre, Folk Lordz is fast, physical and folksy improv theatre like you’ve never seen before. Folk Lordz will wow us in the first half, and OJ perfoms our signature improvised musical in the final half (also known as the second half).
OUTSIDE JOKE & SHAKESPEARE IN THE RUINS- Saturday, April 16, 8pm
We are just tickled to dive into a first-time collaboration with Shakespeare in the Ruins (SIR), a professional theatre company most well-known for presenting promenade-style Shakespeare outdoors in site specific locations. Fun fact: OJ member Toby Hughes is entering his second season as a SIR company member- fancy, huh? Be prepared for a wacky show that pairs the classic and heavily structured works of William Shakespeare with the young and spontaneous form of improvisation. Art thou pumped??
OUTSIDE JOKE & HOT THESPIAN ACTION- Saturday, June 11, 8pm
Oh, how we look forward to our season-closing tradition with local sketch-comedy darlings, Hot Thespian Action! Join us in our yearly, side-splitting collaboration with HTA. Past years have had us laughing so hard that we must stop acting until the heaving chuckles subside. This collaboration has us improvising scenes based on HTA sketches, and HTA sharing their half-baked sketch and song ideas for us to develop onstage. Pure insanity!
