Looking forward to shows is so much better than looking back on shows. Yes of course, looking back on shows allows us to reflect on times gone by and the wish for those "good old days" to return. But the looking forward to new live shows, new books, new films, new music, new times is infinitely better. What new dreams may come? What amazing never-before-seen thing will happen?
*if you have any of the above machines you can disregard the need for looking forward or looking back.
Well, let me tell you, that if you aren't THERE to ACTUALLY see the NEW thing that happens LIVE, you just HEAR about it SECOND HAND. Second hand might be okay when we're talking about finding a cool pair of second hand pants but when we are talking about a mind-blowing live show... you really had to be there. The good news is, there's still time, remember, I'm talking about shows in THE FUTURE not shows in THE PAST. Get to the live shows and EXPERIENCE the moments.

John B Lowe is the Education Director at PTE and has performed with Die Nasty (Edmonton’s celebrated and long running improvised soap opera) as well as having a nice list of TV and Film credits including a role on Tiny Plastic Men and MVP Most Valuable Primate, yes you read that correctly. Don’t believe me? Check out his IMDB here:
Thursday, Dec 4th at the Park Theatre
The Pechakucha Volume 20 will be happening and for some reason it looks like my name is listed as one of the presenters... I guess this means I will be doing the pechakucha. What is that? Well it is 20 slides of 20 seconds each. It as started in Japan (which is why it has that Japanese sounding name) and now it has gone global. I'm terrified and looking forward to the challenge.
Thursday, Dec 11th at the Park Theatre
The very last taping of the Winnipeg TV show The Week Thus Far. They have been doing their live-to-tape TV show for ShawTV for years. CRUMBS has been on their show as a guest more times than anyone, so it feels right to be on their last show and help Winnipeg say goodbye.
Tuesday, Dec 16th at the Good Will Social Club
CRUMBS + More!
A triumphant return of the CRUMBS duo in Winnipeg. They have been split in two for too long. Lee has been touring in Europe and Stephen has been touring... doing stuff... in Winnipeg. They are joined by Dj Hunnicutt, who will be playing the improvised soundtrack. What else could happen? What else is this show? What more could possibly be offered? Show up LIVE to SEE.
Every Monday at 5pm on 101.5 UMFM
Mon, Dec 1st guest John B Lowe
Mon, Dec 8th guest TBA
