Kitty_Vanderbilt

Host: Kitty Vanderbuilt

“Who is Kitty Vanderbuilt?

Kitty is just your regular republican, capitalist, god-fearing, bible toting American.
In other words: she’s one lovable lady!
She hosts regularly at the wiggle room and believes true talent comes from within.. Your wallet. “If you got enough money, you can make anyone love you.”

Carson Pinch – Don’t Look at Me! – Solo Show

A sneak peak of Pinch’s solo show which will be performed at New York City’s Solocom Festival.
A sublime glimpse into the lives of ardent citizens as their perceived reality is torn asunder. Travel down the dark highway between the realms of science and superstition, of obscurity and substance. What beauty… What terror.

Two Man Ballet

THE TWO MAN BALLET

Anton Golikov (Raise the Stakes Theatre) and Alain Mercieca will be performing excerpts from their new play TWO MAN BALLET, an experimental comedy and the poetic classics “THE GARGOYLEMAKER” alongside “PARTY WRITER”.

SLUMLORD

A one woman show by KATIE LEGGITT

In her show, Slumlord, Katie Leggitt explores several characters currently living in a housing project located in Leggitt’s right supramarginal gyrus, also known as the eclectic, trendy, cerebral cortex or “Upper East Side” of the brain.  It’s a no holds barred type of place, and the bouncer is feeling lucky tonight.

GENUIS GOLD

Genius Gold is a sketch comedy duo comprised of Alain Mercieca and Keith Waterfield. Genius Gold’s show “Genius Gold” brings a frenetic madness and tension to the stage that leads one to question “Why am I so in love?” Champions of the avant-garde, their comedy seeks to unite the divided, and separate the many. A barrage so insane, they aim to touch on every possible joke-subject ever.

 


Saturday Nov 15th

DiAnne Smith

HOST: DeAnne Smith

DeAnne Smith, a three-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee (2011, 2012, 2013) has performed all over the world, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Iceland Comedy Festival and Just for Laughs Montreal and Chicago to name a few. She’s also been on TV in four countries, including on Last Comic Standing NBC, The Late Late Show on CBS, Canada’s The Comedy Network and CBC, Australia’s Channel 10 and ABC, and UK’s Sky TV.

It’s hard to know what to put in a bio, guys. DeAnne also really likes toast and has a hard time maintaining talking about myself in the third person.

The Montreal Gazette says DeAnne is “fresh, cutting…one of the finest wits in the country.” The UK’s Telegraph calls her “Smart. Very funny. Effortless charm lets her get away with murder.” She’s never actually murdered anyone.

Along Came Salmon

TSC’s house Sketch team featuring Katie Leggitt, Deirdre Trudeau, Jacob Greco & Stefan Petersen

Along Came Salmon and then all your dreams came true. That is of course if your dreams consist exclusively of a bunch of hip and swell young folks performing hilarious and TOTALLY well rehearsed sketch comedy on a stage in front of you. It’s so well rehearsed it looks like we only practiced like once or twice, because it’s JUST SO RAW, YOU KNOW!?! We love babies and guns. Get with it.
