What’s the haps

24 07 2013

With only a few weeks left in Montreal before I head over to the Edmonton Fringe and then back to Australia for the debut production of my new show TRAMPOLINE, I’ve been pretty busy as always. Check out SHOW DATES for more info on upcoming performances!

I just finished my Zoofest season of Let’s Start A Country, which was, as always, a lot of fun. The organisation of the festival was a bit of a shit-show and I doubt I’d want to do it again, but our shows went well, got good crowds and there’s heap of great shows still playing that I highly recommend checking out. (Die Roten Punkte, The Progressive Polygamists, Kuwaiti Moonshine, The Birdmann, Underbelly and Slut (r)evolution to name just a few).

I am currently interviewing/reviewing a bunch of acts for the Just For Laughs Festival for Bloody Underrated, which has also been a blast so far. Much more to come this week too!

THE DEATH OF CAPTAIN SPACESHIP

6 07 2013

Last week, after ten months and nine amazing “episodes” (including a motherflippin’ XMAS SPECIAL!) the crew of Captain Spaceship just had their final mission at Mainline Theatre (But for HOW LONG!?). The finale was bitter-sweet, funny, silly, spacey, timey-wimey and even a little sentimental; all the things I’ve come to love about this format!

This on-going sci-fi improv series has been one of the funniest and most rewarding shows I’ve ever had the pleasure of being involved with. The incredibly talented cast, that really was the best of the best, made my stupid idea come alive and took it too places I never thought imaginable. I was thrilled to see how quickly audiences embraced the show and gave us our own little cult following (cult followings are cool). I have had such a blast living out the adventure of these crazy characters, I do hope we get to do this again sometime. Plans are already underway for Captain Spaceship Down-under and a follow up series in Montreal next year, so stay tuned Spaceshippers, the Captain is just locked in stasis…for now.

I want to take this opportunity to thank my incredible cast Lea Rondot, Pat Dussault, Dan Jeannotte, Lise Vigneault, Matt Goldberg, Marc Rowland and Kirsten Rasmussen as well as all the incredible guest stars who appeared throughout the series: Dan Derkson, Jess Fildes, Anders Yates, Colin Munch, Brent Skagford, Vinny Francois and the mighty Vance Gillies!

Thanks also to the fine folks at Mainline Theatre, Especially Amy Blackmore, Al Lafrance and out awesome techie Emily Thorne. Big thanks also to Jeremy Hechtman who got the ball rolling on this project and without whom, it might never have happened.
