Graham Clark’s The Quiz Show At Fox Cabaret September 9, 2017

21 Aug

Love to laugh? Or may you just need a laugh. We recommend you check out The Quiz Show coming to The Fox Cabaret on Saturday, September 9th.  The show which was originally featured at the now defunct Hot Art Wet City is back.  Graham Clark grew up loving all the old game shows and has created an interesting hybrid from game shows of the past. The Quiz Show is hosted by Graham Clark and features local comedians as contestants doing their best to make audience members laugh for which they win prizes.   If you are unfamiliar with Graham’s comedic talents, he is a 3 time Canadian Comedy Award winner, co-host of Maximum Fun’s Stop Podcasting Yourself, a regular on CBC’s The Debaters, has appeared at Just For Laughs, as well as Halifax and Winnipeg Comedy Festivals and even won best stand up last year a the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. So we would lay bets the guy will make you laugh. Tickets for the show are now available on Eventbrite for $10 in advance of $12 at the door.

rEvolver Festival Presents All The Way At The Russian Hall May 31- June 3, 2017

22 May

AllTheWayUpInTheAirTheatreThere is a new game show in town as part of the rEolver Festival happening May 24 to June 4, 2017 presented by Up In The Air Theatre. This show is being billed as a “hypnagogic game show straddling the worlds of a haunted house and The Price is Right. This partially-immersive, pop-cult, horror-flick-obsessed puzzle invites audience members to dive into a hero’s journey… to emerge thrilled and victorious. All The Way rewards the competitor, soothes the dreamer, and delights in the deliciously unconventional.”  Personally we love unconventional, so our bet is this will be an interesting show. We hear there are prizes to be won and if you are a fan of Sudoku and have watched a lot of television, especially Buffy, you will do quite well. All The Way runs May 31st to June 3rd at The Russian Hall, 600 Campbell Street in the heart of Strathcona. Tickets are $20 each and available online from The Cultch.  If you are not familiar with the rEvolver Festival, it brings new works by emerging theatre companies and artists to the stage each May. We invite you to check out some of the shows they will be presenting this May during the rEvolver Festival.
