|Some of us can hardly believe the IF is happening.|
Our out-of-town performers have landed and are getting mentally prepared to face the hungry Winnipeg audiences.
Come warm up at the FREE show at the King's Head Pub tonight:
THE IMPROV FESTIVAL SAMPLER PLATTER
Stephen and Lee from CRUMBS host the opening show of the Winnipeg Improv Festival by doing scenes with out of town guests and local players in this Improv Festival tradition. The Festival Sampler show at the King's Head pub is a part of the on going Free Laughs Comedy Series that puts on free live comedy shows at the King's Head every Tuesday night. It is entering the fifth season of production. The sampler is exactly that, a free show that lets the audiences catch a glimpse and “sample” the improv styles of the guests that are coming to play in Winnipeg at the festival. Kick back, enjoy a beverage and a snack while the experts entertain you.
King's Head Pub, 120 King St. | 9 p.m. | Free
And you can hear Stephen and Lee of CRUMBS live on CBC Radio One today, 990 AM and 89.3 FM, on Up to Speed.
Then, they continue on with taping some improvised videos for CBC's Manitoba Scene site, based on suggestions from CBC listeners. Stay tuned to the website for that!
We've had a lot great radio and TV interviews this week so far, and you can check them out. Today the September 20th edition of web & TV show The Week Thus Far features CRUMBS in front of a live audience; also listen to their interview on CKUW 95.9 FM, talking to Jon Wilson of Joke's on You (download the September 19th episode here).
Thanks to all who are helping to spread the word about the IF!
See you tonight!
