April 6th! Almost a year after our one-night sketch comedy event blew minds and melted brains in Red Deer for the first time, we return to Red Deer to bring the guffaws and set hearts aflame… FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY! AGAIN! It’s going to have everything… Comedy… Sketches… Sketch comedy… Maybe some songs, some dancin’, some romancin’… Online tickets already available, so if you want to get your tickets early go to the trusty ol’ PURCHASE TICKETS HERE link and get ‘em while you can. Otherwise our box office opens @ 730pm on April 6th at the Scott Block Theatre! So if you’re 1.88 hours driving distance (or less) from Red Deer, you should see this show… And if you can’t see this show, tell your friends all about it… Deal? Great! See you (and/or your friends) there! HUGS!
WELL, A BIT BELOW THERE… WHERE IT SAYS PURCHASE TICKETS HERE. OR AT THE BOX OFFICE OF WHICHEVER THEATRE WE HAPPEN TO BE PERFORMING. HOWEVER, WE ONLY TAKE CASH AT THE THEATRE BOX OFFICE, INCLUDING FOR OUR NEXT SHOW, TRAGICALLY DELICIOUS (MARCH 13-16) AT THE BIRDS AND STONE THEATRE (204 16TH AVE NW)… IT’LL BE LIKE A SLUMBER PARTY THAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU WANTED TO GO TO… EXCEPT IT’LL BE BETTER BECAUSE THERE’LL BE NO ACTUAL SLEEPING OVER. YOU CAN GO HOME TO SLEEP IN YOUR OWN BED… MAYBE TAKE A BATH… WHATEVER YOU WANT… SO, SEE THIS SHOW. THAT IS ALL.
Here we go, yo. Here we go, yo. Now, what’s the-what’s the-what’s the scenario… Ah, an A Tribe Called Quest reference… Claaaasssssic! Anyway, the scenario is that there’s another show on the horizon… Tragically Delicious… March 13-16… And if you want a password for a 10 dollar ticket, here it is… the password is BANSHEE… Use it at our online box office (where it says purchase tickets here… to your right on this site) or in person from March 13-16 at the Birds and Stone Theatre at our cash-only box office… So… You’re welcome… And here is a photo of a show we did where Jesus had us singing and dancing and being ridden like ponies to Ginuwine’s song Pony (Jesus is in the snuggie).

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Tragically Delicious is a sketch comedy show full of whimsy, music, dance, romance, cereal, joy, and laughter. The cereal is a symbol of the tasty comedic goodness in this show, but the rest of the description for this delightful sketch comedy romp is totally accurate.
And if you’re Irish, your ticket is only $15!
OSCARS 2013 EDITION!
So.. Cliff didn’t see any movies in 2013… And the Mongoose only saw The Dark Knight Rises (“Sucked!”), Resident Evil: Retribution (“Ruled!”) and Step Up 4: Revolution (“The most emotionally resonant film I’ve ever seen”)… So that leaves me. Hi, I am Amos… And when I am not preparing our next show (Tragically Delicious, March 13-16, Calgary AB, 8pm, 204 16th Ave NW) with our wonderful cast, I cry in the tub, eat tacos, and sometimes watch movies… So here’s my list of the best movie-films and, in addition, performances of 2012.

Reasons to skip Safe Haven next weekend:
- you’re being coerced with the promise of sex or cake, but those promises will likely be broken once you fall asleep 5 minutes into the movie
- this movie promises to be a giant piece of shit… just redundant drivel…
- one “hot” guy in Safe Haven isn’t better than 4 hot guys in Power Ballad
- you don’t like torturing your intellect
- one “hot” lady isn’t better than 3 hot ladies in Power Ballad
- you want to keep shitty movies from making money, so there’s less incentive for Hollywood to make such shitty movies
Reasons to see Power Ballad this week (Feb 13-15):
- you’re pretty sure that this show will freely open you to the possibility of good times, laughter, joy and a bit of post-show sex and/or cake
- drivel? depends on your sense of humour… redundant? NEVER!
- 3 hot ladies
- 4 hot guys
- unpredictable story arcs
- more music than an episode of Treme
- Jesus sightings
- battle scenes, love scenes, Purim scenes
-busting of moves
- hilarious wigs
- supporting local artists appeals to you
- Pat Quinn
… and many more!
WINNER: POWER BALLAD. See it, because if you see Safe Haven you’re clearly an idiot.
