THE BIG STUPID IMPROV SHOW
A sampling of your favourite local improvisers teams up every show with out of town guests to jam. It’s like a really cool jazz club, only instead of instruments everybody is strumming jokes. Come check out what fringe artists are also hilarious when they don’t have their precious scripts!

GORDON’S BIG BALD HEAD – GRAND THEFT IMPRO

THE LATE NITE CABARET
A late night talk show hosted by RFT’s Amy Shostak and Kevin Gillese, with interviews, different guest acts every night, live music and beer served through out. Up until some recent legislative changes rocking a party this hard was technically illegal. But now we are permitted by law to hand you an awesome end to your night, every night of fringe.

**** “You can be sure that no matter what happens, there are going to be laughs.” – The Edmonton Sun
Rapid Fire’s hottest export is back for the fringe, serving up another platter of improvised mayhem for your comedy appetites. Kevin Gillese and Arlen Konopaki have been touring and developing this act for several seasons, over several continents. And along the way they picked up the amazing Cellolitis, a live, looping, bow-snapping sensation from Berlin.
**** “Their chemistry is rock solid.” – SEE Magazine
A WATCHED POT NEVER BOYLES
Let’s get one thing straight. Boyle is pronounced “boy-lay”. Join Walter and Ester as they move to the big city, fall in love, and live with the demons that haunt them. A love story guaranteed to make you piss emotion.
***** “Smartly constructed duo Walter Boyle and Ester Horse will split your sides with their crude humour and wacky relationship.” – VUE Weekly.
**** “A watched pot might take forever to boil, but Arlen Konopaki and Amy Shostak induce bubbling laughter from lights up to curtain down..” -SEE Magazine
