Okay gang. Wednesday’s show is over. So there are no more 2/1 tickets… but there is a secret password… That gets you 33% off on all of the tickets you purchase for you and your friends (sooooo many friends)… So on Thurs/Fri/Sat, just whisper the secret password to our box office staff (or online) and all of your dreams (of 33% off tickets) will come true! The super-secret password is… brains. You’re welcome.

okay. this one isn’t so easy, because both are visually stunning pieces of art that have their merits… buuuut…The top 7 reasons BoLD is better than All is Lost are:
- the existence of dialogue.
- All is Lost doesn’t feature some of the scariest creatures of horror (unless you include Robert Redford on that list) doing hilarious things… or any things. All is Lost features none of the scariest creatures of horror.
- rudimentary sailing < ridiculous choreography
- an hour of sketch comedy is waaaay more fun than being stranded at sea
- Brunch of the Living Dead is literally in THREE DIMENSIONS (as are all Late, Late Breakfast Show performances)
- both are stories of struggles for survival, but BoLD has (SPOILER ALERT) straight-up resurrection
- Pat Quinn is funnier than Robert Redford (and basically as handsome…)
I don’t understand the question… Why not BRUNCH OF THE LIVING DEAD? It’s on the heels of Hallowe’en and, moreover, a sketch comedy* show with such a hilarious title shouldn’t need to justify the “why”… The title is cheeky and intriguing, which our extensive research tells us is an advantageous in marketing to everyone on Earth. But so many fans (zero, in fact) have asked, “Hey, is this show about zombies?”… No. It is not. It’s just another clever title in a long line of clever titles… However, the show dates are close to Hallowe’en, so the title may hint at an overall atmosphere or theme… I can’t really give straight answers when I’m mobbed on the streets by our relentless fans… “Will zombies appear?” … Perhaps. “Do they eat brains?” … Could be. “What about a werewolf; will there be a werewolf?” … Kind of. But I have already said too much. Unfortunately, I can’t show you what BRUNCH OF THE LIVING DEAD will look like… You have to see it for yourself. NOV 13-16. birds and stone theatre (204 16th Ave NW, Calgary). 8pm. Be there. Bring friends. Tell other friends, if they can’t make it that night. That be all… for now.
*sketch comedy= a performance of short, original comedic scenes or ‘sketches’… think of the LLBS’s brand of sketch comedy as kind of like Saturday Night Live without censorship or awkward Miley Cyrus appearances.
Yes, it is time to reveal the cast of DEGRASSI KNOLL. After months of secrecy and misinformation, we are proud to announce veteran LLBS performers DAN PERRY, PAT QUINN, AMOS ALTMAN, MAT GLESSING, and rookie SAMARA EMSLEY will be performing DEGRASSI KNOLL @ birds and stone (204 16th Ave NW) from Sept 11-14. So, rest easy Earth. We’ve got this. Pat and Amos aren’t pictured. They were busy choreographing an epic fight that was eventually cut from the show, ’cause it was too elaborate.
Ah. Three solid months of serenity for us (and three sad months without joy for you) are over. We will again drive ourselves to insanity in creating our tasty brand of sketch comedy, so you can smile again, laugh again, feel again. Because we return in September, sketch comedy-ing it up for you with DEGRASSI KNOLL. Sept 11-14. birds and stone theatre. 204 16th Ave NW. Calgary. Alberta. Canada. BE THERE! Online tickets through the very handy link on this website will be available next week and SUPER-SECRET CASTING NEWS is coming soon! That is all. Oh, except for this:
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!
