IRON COBRA Improv. Toronto Fringe. July 6-17.

Okay, so...

This is very exciting.

IRON COBRA (well, mostly Becky, as Graham may possibly be indesposed) is hosting Toronto's very first Big Stupid Improv Show-esque event at the Toronto Fringe. It's called IRON COBRA Improv, which made more sense before Graham became indesposed.

The Big Stupid is an Edmonton/Winnipeg Fringe tradition that sprang out of last minute Fringe cancellations. In that event, an improv show would be thrown into a venue bringing together improvisers travelling through town for the Fringe.

But who cares, right?

In our version, the performers will be mostly local as our lovely city has a glut of amazing improvisers.

Just check out who is on the line-up so far:

Teresa Pavlinek, Scott Montgomery, Derek Flores, Paul Bates, Sandy Jobin-Bevans, Albert Howell, Naomi Sneickus, Jason Bryden, Kerry Griffin, Eric Hart, David Dineen-Porter, Aurora Browne, Rebecca Northan, Sean Tabares, Kathleen Phillips, Dave Pearce, Kurt Smeaton, Jamey Rosen, Dale Boyer, Chris Tindal, Mark Andrada, Chris Gibbs, Nick Flanagan, Jeff Santos

...with more to come.

Not too shabby, eh?

Every show will be different with a different theme (all women, all westerners, Nick Flanagan's evening of filth...).

Specific show rundowns will be posted soon.

Edmonton, Improvaganza. June 15-25.

Edmotn's own Rapid Fire Theatre hosts ten days of improv in their fine city and IRON COBRA will be there.

But we won't be alone. No, no. We have been sent to this tournament to destroy teams from Atlanta, Winnipeg, Slovenia, Belgium, Toronto (that's another team from Toronto), Seattle, Portland, Berlin, Regina and, of course, Edmonton.

Pretty nifty, eh?

Check the Rapid Fire website for more info and performance schedules.

P.S. - That's Bill over there.
