CRUMBS shows and stuff like that.

CRUMBS has 2 exciting shows on the horizon. Let me explain...

The Facebook event is here

The Facebook event is here

1) Tue Dec 15th
First up we have the CRUMBS & Friends show that is happening as part of the ongoing Free Laughs Comedy Series that happens at the King's Head (every single Tuesday at 9pm blah blah blah you know this) what makes this installment exciting is our "friends" our "special guests" are non other than Alix Sobler & Tricia Cooper.

Alix Sobler hails from New York City, met a man on her Fringe Festival touring and moved to Winnipeg. That doesn't stop her from burning up stages and burning up scripts (this might be confusing, allow me to explain, Alix writes a mean script and performs live as well).

Tricia Cooper was a cast member of the legendary Winnipeg sketch troupe The Royal Lichtenstein Theatre Company. They did many a hilarious comedy show here and on tour. They even got their own special on CBC. She has also been known to make people laugh on her own too.

2) Fri Dec 18th

Secondly, we have the SIM, SLADE, WHITE & McINTYRE show. This show is huge, this show is epic, this show is not to be missed. The original version was way back in 1996 and was called "SLADE, McINTYRE, SIM & WHITE" and was not only a kind of rite of passage for the "SIM" and the "WHITE" it was also one of the first improv shows for Canadian improv players Michal Grajewski, Aaron Merke and Bob Banks (who can now be seen performing in Toronto and Vancouver as part of such groups as Projectproject and Ghost Jail Theatre).

This show is possible because Robert Slade is in town (from London England) performing in the MTC Mainstage show and happens to be in town (lucky us). Stephen McIntyre and Robert Slade are the reason why improv in Winnipeg is so good, let alone why it even exists.

It also should be mentioned that before the show on the 18th there is another show you should check out. On Friday, Dec 18th at 8pm there is a show called "SKetches & Doodles" that is a sketch comedy show produced by "The Gray Area of Comedy". This sketch show will feature live and video sketches (and will feature RobYn Slade, who just happens to be Robert Slade's daughter). If you go to this show and keep your ticket stub, you will get into the late show for only $5 (good deal).
