OJ & CRUMBS- Saturday, December 27th, 2014 @ 8pm
We love hosting a winter show with our favourite tall boys, and this season is no exception. Our season launcher will see Outside Joke and CRUMBS doing a live Secret Santa gift exchange, with monologues, stories and improvised songs inspired by the spirit of the season!
CRUMBS is an international improv duo from Winnipeg that first formed in 1997. They have been touring all over the world with their stripped down lo-fi improv comedy theatre show. They are lucky enough to be able to perform with Dj Hunnicutt, who happens to be an amazing Dj that really “gets it”.
OJ & PETER ‘N CHRIS- Saturday, March 21, 2015 @ 8pm
You’ve heard the buzz, you’ve tried to get tickets to their shows for the past three Fringes but couldn’t because their shows sell out, like, a year before they even happen- and now you get to see them in the flesh!! Just look at those sweet, fleshy faces.
This show will see two outstanding sets of comedy: Outside Joke with their crowd-favourite improvised musical and Peter n’ Chris performing their newest, most hilarious, most western-themed sketch comedy revue, Peter n’ Chris And The Kinda OK Corral.
Peter n’ Chris are a Canadian Comedy Award Winning comedy duo from Vancouver BC. They tour the Fringe Festival and comedy circuit bringing their narrative, cinematic and physical sketch comedy to audiences in Canada and the U.S. at such acclaimed festivals as JFL42, the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, Seattle SketchFest, and Gilda’s Laugh Fest in Grand Rapids Michigan.
OJ & HOT THESPIAN ACTION- Saturday, May 2, 2015 @ 8pm
We had so much fun collaborating with HTA last year! We closed the season with an experimental blend of sketch, improv and song. We had a blast, and we thiiiiiiink the audience did too.
We’re bringing HTA back for our season closer this year, and you can all be prepared for another flurry of sketch and improv. This show is a must see! So are the other ones but. . .but you get the point.
Hot Thespian Action is a Canadian Comedy Award nominated sketch comedy troupe who have been delighting audiences since 2006 with their minimalist aesthetic, inspired by the group’s mime roots. They are Winnipeg Fringe Festival favourites, and have performed at the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival 2009 – Present alongside a cast of Canadian comedy icons like Andrea Martin, Cathy Jones and Alan Thicke.
That’s our season, folks! If you picked up a handbill earlier this season, the March and May dates are wrong- these ones are right! We just got so excited about those handbills that we went ahead and printed any ol’ dates! (that’s not really what happened, but it was indeed a mistake) All shows are at the Gas Station Arts Centre, our favourite improv venue and co-producer. Get your tickets ahead of time by visiting Ticketweb or reserve with the GSAC, 204-284-9477. See you in December, March and May!!
