Wes Babcock & Nancy Kenny
A workshop presentation. Princess Polly loses the popular vote to be Miss Leader of the Free World to a Department Store Mannequin. A Prince Charming Type knows he can save the day, if only people would listen. In this dark comedy of errors, Polly learns what it takes to change the world, and it’s less funny than she thought. A brand new show from the creators of Roller Derby Saved My Soul and Everybody Dies In December.
Spoken word. Rap. Song.
Repression. Depression. Obsession.

A show. You. Me. Your friends. Too forward? We could get coffee first.
Reverse-psychology. Reverse-reverse-psychology. Psychology?
Commands: C’man. C’maaaaaan.

The Improv Embassy
By combining actual news stories and improv comedy, The Fake News Show presents reality as it truly is: surreal. Think The Daily Show, The View, The Onion and Whose Line Is It Anyway all rolled into one sexy, truthy package. We’ll keep Trump jokes to a minimum – honest.
Monica Ogden & Tony Adams
LUB DUB seeks to create honest and genuine moments through improvisation & collaboration. Imagine one moment slow dancing to The Drifters, the next you’re creating a piece of art with found objects. Like a sketch show meets performance art meets an ask-me-anything, the result is performance that is vulnerable, prone to surprises and a unique & malleable experience for audiences to be a part of.
Sandy Gibson & Mark MacDonald
Confederemix is kickin’ it really old school with a musical retelling of Canada’s birth as seen through the eyes of Anne Brown and her husband George, a lesser known Father of Confederation. The story is told and sung through a mash-up of contemporary songs and dramatic moments in Canadian history. It’s a bumpin’ new show that you don’t want to miss!
Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone shares a secret. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from a traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before. In this fast moving kaleidoscope multiple characters try to make sense of what they know. (note this is a not a clown comedy as indicated previously but rather comedy drama)

Lauren Cauchy, Amanda Logan & Allison Harris
Afternoon delight, hanky panky, souring the kraut.
Join Lauren, Amanda and musical guest Alli in a late night (or mid-day) talk show all about sex positivity. Think The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, but with one hot lesbian as The Roots, and two rad babes as Jimmy.
Every show will feature another artist in the city who will come on to chat, play games and give advice on your sex questions. This is your warning: audience participation may be involved – wanna Do It with us? Let’s talk about sex, baby.
“Cauchy and Logan play off each other really nicely…cool as cucumbers…” – New Ottawa Critics
