Farewell, Georgia.

Thanks to all of Georgia.

For whatever.

And special thanks to all the Atlantonians who came to see our closing show on Saturday night.

Although we forgot to say it at the show, we are going to take all the (plethora of) unused audience suggestions back to Toronto and dip into them for our audio improvisation sessions.

So, who knows? Maybe your suggestions will pop up months from now. In Canada! In audio!

Atlanta Update.

For anyone in the greater Atlanta area who saw our Thursday night show, we have devised an all-new show to close out the festival on Saturday at midnight.

You should probably be there.

All new.


Also, we are pleased to announce that we will be guests of Uncle Gampa's Hoo Dilly Stew on Saturday at 1:00pm at Dad's Garage.

You know, for the kids.

Check it out.

Hoo dilly.

The Shobu Show.

From the mind of Deborah Robinson comes The Shobu Show, a crazy new sketch competition.

As clearly as we can tell, it is based on Japanese comedy, hosted in Japanese, and is some kind of comedy fight-to-the-finish.

This will be the first installment.

The line-up (possibly) includes:
The Iliads
The Karyn Parsons Project
Sandra B and the Gang
Unky Darryl's House of Sketchola

Hosted By
Kaz & Nobuyoshi

From Deborah:

“Shobu”: to win or to lose; a battle (Japanese).

Toronto’s edgiest comedians battle it out for the title of “Shobu
Champion”. The show features authentic Japanese school girls as judges,
fake fighting monsters, Audience “Shobu” Challenges, and musical

Thank Yous.

We have a couple thank you's to toss out for this past week's shows.

Thanks to Kevin McLeod for teching our show at the Tim Sims when Angola sprained her neck. Congratulstions on your first show!

Thanks to Ken Ferrell and Graeme Bunton for taping.

And thanks to everyone who came out to the Cobra Benefit show. The boys raised over $500 for the little kickers - that's the sponsorship fee plus a good bit of spoiling cash.

Just for the record, contrary to past information, IRON COBRA did not take any money from the benefit show. C'mon, these are kids.

If you want to see Toronto's fiercest little league team in action (and the only one sponsored by a bunch of rock stars) word on the street is that they can be caught Saturday mornings at Christie Pits Park.

Cobra Benefit. Update.

The line-up as stands is as follows:

Wren City Churches (Musica)
Us (Improv)
The Iliads (Sketch Comedy)
Fever Sheds (More Music)
Katie Crown & Levi MacDougall (Stand-around Comedy)

So, come out and help a bunch of degenerates raise funds to sponsor/spoil a team of 10 year old soccer players. Weird, eh?

Atlanta Schedule and Ticketing Online.

The schedule for the First Atalnta Improv Festival is now online here.

For more information on the festival in general, read below or visit the Dad's Garage Theatre Company site. Obviously, you don't have anything better to do.

Hmm...what else to say...?

You see, this "page" doesn't "paginate" well when the pictures are greater in height that the length of the text.


This is awkward.

I'm going to get a coke.

The Cobra Benefit Show

Our good friends, the Wren City Churches, have put this rock/comedy/rockedy show together seemingly to sponsor anything with 'Cobra' in their name.

Here, read (from their website):

"The purpose of this event is multiple-fold: it will help send Iron Cobra to the improv games in Atlanta; it will help Wren City Churches and friends sponsor a soccer team of 11-year-olds, to be named (of course) The Cobras; and it will be fun for you.

The bill will include: Iron Cobra, improv-comedy-doing anthropomorphized robots from the future sent back in time to do improv comedy. And us, Wren City Churches. Also, stand-up comedy by James Brylowski. Further: something special from Mike De Eyre - you might know him for his work in The Black Maria, or his neat hair. There might be another band, maybe more comedy, and some short films."

Come out.
Rock with us.
Talk with us.
Touch Mike De Eyre.
