We are entering the most exciting year since 2000. Yes, of course I am talking about 2012, the year that tons of morons are screaming is going to be the last year ever. All because a bunch of people decided to stop updating their calendars. Even more hilariously, it was probably a South American guy who had just finished the work on one huge cycle of day/month/years he had been carving into stone and took a break then realized that he would be good because it stretched roughly a couple thousand years into the future. And even though I have used the image from the Movie 2012 (without anyone's permission) I of course don't believe any of the crazy talk and hype.
So, the world isn't going to end because of that. There are plenty of real reasons the world can end and I won't list them (global warming, random asteroid collision, pandemic... Oh wait, I wasn't going to list them).
Okay, that is a whole lot of "doom and gloom" to start this off. I will now go into the things we all have to look forward in this coming year.
The next CRUMBS show!
The next CRUMBS show is Tuesday, January 3rd at 9pm at the King's Head Pub. Yes, this is a part of the ongoing and "super-amazingly-hilariously-underground-cool-to-the-max" Free Laughs Comedy Series that is in its 6th Season of bringing high quality comedy to Winnipeg audiences. The shows are free and are upstairs at the King's Head ever single Tuesday night.
CRUMBS on Jan 3rd and also Jan 17th, Feb 7th and Feb 21st.

The CRUMBS Radio Special on 101.5 UMFM!
CRUMBS does a live radio show on 101.5 UMFM every single Monday at 5pm CST where we bring you our very best opinions about the News the News is too afraid to have opinions on. We also have our show streaming live on the Internetz as well as having it Podcasted for future generations.

Other Free Laugh Shows are great too!
The Free Laugh shows at the King's Head are also great and worth their weight in Comedy Gold. The one most everyone is most excited for is the Kings of the King's Head which is the comedy game show show that has been running as a special presentation hosted by Lee White.
The next comedy game show is going to be Jan 31st.

There are probably other reasons to be optimistic and hopeful in this new year as well.
-Its the year of the Dragon (which is a really cool mythical being)
-Your family and friends are great (aren't they?)
-You're alive (and being alive is amazing)
-Things are still funny
See you at the hilarious comedy shows Winnipeg!
How does CRUMBS ruin the holidays? Actually, we have no idea, just thought it would make some sort of eye catching headline.
CRUMBS has a show on Tuesday, Dec 20th at the King's Head Pub as part of the ongoing (and 6th Season of) The Free Laughs Comedy Shows. These comedy shows have sparked a underground movement of comedy in Winnipeg. Now there are soooooo many live comedy shows to see, when 6 years ago there were barely any regular comedy nights. Oh how Winnipeg has grown, I would dare say that if the comedy scene hadn't turned around we wouldn't have gotten our NHL team back... Maybe I'm being too bold.
The CRUMBS show that is happening on Dec 20th is a CRUMBS & Friends show that will feature some amazing special guests. What special guests?
Mama Cuttsworth (who will be DJing for the show)
Mike Grajewski (Visiting all the way from Toronto)
RobYn Slade (Visiting all the way from Awesome and member of Outside Joke)
Tricia Cooper (Former member of the Royal Leichtenstein Theatre Company and current amazing woman)
Tobias Hughes (Yes, the famous actor and member of Outside Joke)
Gordon Tanner (Former member of the Royal Leichtenstein Theatre Company and also a famous Winnipeg celebrity)
Alix Sobler (former New Yorker who chose Winnipeg, also, amazing actor and playwright)
Who else? Well, you will just have to show up and see.
CRUMBS has also put together an official Youtube Channel (just like all the dancing kittens and lip syncing kids). We will slowly be building this and growing this to include sweet videos of us doing our live show and short films. We will probably post videos of dancing kitties and lip synching kids as well.
Check out these first two vids:
Please check out the channel and spread it around and do the internet stuff with it.

The King's Head is HERE
Now, before I do the rest of my updates about the CRUMBS Euro Touro Fall 2011 edition, I must tell you all that we are all back in Winnipeg and will be returning to the King's Head for the Free Laughs Comedy shows.
Soooooooooooooooo, that means you should go to the King's Head this Tuesday and every Tuesday after that.
Why this Tuesday?
Well, this Tuesday is December 6th and marks our triumphant return to Winnipeg stages. You will like it and remember how much you've missed us.
Why every Tuesday?
Well, because every single Tuesday there is a comedy show that happens at the King's Head pub as part of the Free Laughs Comedy Series.
