So if you like Becky's work or are just easily persuaded, go vote.

Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award Nomination.

Toronto, September 2004 --

IRON COBRA is pleased to announce their nomination for the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award. Full information about the award, its fund and its background are available via the Tim Sims website.

The full list of nominees has not been officially announced yet but should be within the next few days. However, IRON COBRA happens to know that they are in awfully good company this year.

The gautlet of events for this award includes a couple of shows culminating in the Cream of Comedy show where the award is presented by Lindsay Leese. All performances will be listed on the calendar shortly. Unfortunately for the catch23 crowd, they all fall on Mondays. IRON COBRA understands.

Updates to follow.

catch23 Returning Champeens.

Dear everybody,

Thank you for your narrow votes of support last week. We won, anyway.

This victory, however, did not fall upon us without the delicate talents of the two charming improvisers we dragged onto the stage with us - Peter Stevens and Kevin Gillese. Thank you, gentlemen, your efforts did not go unnoticed.

As a result, we have realized that we do our best work when cowering behind the "skillz" of others and thus have invited Mr. Gillese to join us next Monday. Fear not, Mr. Stevens, your arbitrary time shall come as well.

But this week we summon the power of Gillese to vanquish our foes (a varied and impressive line-up featuring Derek Flores, Rebecca Northan, Kurt Smeaton, Julie Dumais, Alana Johnston and Scott Montgomery)!

catch23 IMPROV. September 13th.

IRON COBRA makes a haughty return to the catch23 stage in an attempt to answer the pressing question "What's so great about these guys."

Come enjoy this high pressure show and see how the Cobra fares with a reputation to uphold.

Surprises guaranteed.

The World Has a New Dominator.

September, 2004 --

IRON COBRA (playing as Team Toronto) is bringing home a first place victory from the World Domination TheatreSports Championships hosted by Dad's Garage Theatre Co. in Atlanta, Georgia.

In true competitive fashion, they were aided heavily on stage by their opponents and would like to thank Team Edmonton (Jacob Bannigan, Mark Meer and IRON COBRA founding member Josh Dean) for basically doing all the work for them.

IRON COBRA would also like to thank everyone else especially everyone in Atlanta.

IRON COBRA is safe and sound in Atlanta having a great time and has been for a few days now.

Updates have been made to the calendar but the Dad's Garage website is really the best place to look for show and tournament information.

We love you, Atlanta!
