Our sold-out performance at the Vancouver International Sketch Comedy Festival went SO well, we decided to celebrate with TWO shows back in Edmonton this weekend! Catch us at Back Of The Bus, an adults-only fundraiser for a young-audiences theatre production, this Friday at 9pm at the Catalyst Theatre. We’ll be playing a set themed around childhood, but it’ll be raunchy as hell, and that’s pretty much how the whole night’s gonna go down. Alternatively/in addition, you can catch us performing sketch comedy with the Débutantes at Exciting Times, this Saturday at 9pm at the Mercury Room. The lineup for that show is STACKED, including two amazing musical acts and a bunch of hilarious comics, so get your tickets in advance or risk being SO SAD (also advance tickets are cheaper!). Look, the most important takeaway here is that you have two chances to see us this weekend and BOTH of them also have Mikey Maybe on the bill, okay? How could you possibly pass that up?
Success 5000 will be playing at the Vancouver Sketch Comedy Festival on Saturday, January 17th – 7:30pm at the Waterfront Theatre! Tickets are available RIGHT THE HECK NOW. Other highlights of the festival include KEVIN FREAKIN’ MACDONALD FROM KIDS IN THE HALL. Ahem.
Before we leave town, though, we’re gonna do a big kickoff show at Wunderbar with Gossamer Obsessions and Boxcar, two local sketch groups who are also in the festival AND consist of all the funniest people I know. I’m not lying when I say there might be more hilarity jammed into this event than any other show we’ve ever played… possibly any show that anyone has ever played. It’s gonna be NUTS.
