Steve Patterson - I LAUGH therefore I think

​Shantero Productions

April 18, 2015
Showtimes:
April 18, 7:30pm
Hot on the heels of his critically acclaimed national tour This Is Not Debatable, Steve Patterson returns with I Laugh Therefore I Think, a rollicking slice of hilarity that will make you laugh, think, or – at the very least – think about laughing!
 
Known foremost as host of CBC’s hit comedy radio show The Debaters, Steve Patterson is also considered to be one of the country’s premier comedic talents, being named twice, first in 2011 and again in 2013, as Best Male Stand-Up Comic at the Canadian Comedy Awards. It’s an opinion universally endorsed by peers and media alike: “There’s no debate about it, Steve Patterson is hysterical. Don’t miss him” - Rick Mercer; “one of this country’s sharpest wits” - Montreal Gazette; “wickedly funny” - Halifax Chronicle Herald
 
Joining Steve is special guest Ivan Decker, a Vancouver-based comedian who has been heralded as one of the fastest rising stars in Canada. A 10-year stand-up comedy veteran at age 29, Ivan reveals the humour hiding in the everyday trials of today's young adults with careful dissection, brilliant timing, and intelligent observation. Fans of The Debaters will immediately recognize Ivan as a frequent and popular guest.
 
I Laugh Therefore I Think: A current, sometimes irreverent, original 90-minute one man show stoked with Steve's hallmark gift for capturing a funny turn of a phrase, a smattering of original satirical songs and a glee that comes from the opportunity to express opinions beyond the bounds as moderator of The Debaters ... things that we all laugh about first and think about second. Or do we think first and laugh second? Or do we just laugh for a second before thinking, 'Oh. Should I have laughed at that?' All this and more. Buckle up for an all-systems-go blast-off to the land of laughter!

The Honeymooners Play

​Celsk Benefit Promotions

June 28, 2015
Showtimes:
June 28, 2:00pm

“Honeymooners, the Golden Age of Television” revisits the era that made Jackie Gleason and Art Carney stars of television. Told through the lens of the popular series, the Honeymooners, this production looks at their lasting friendship and the work they accomplished together.

The curmudgeonly Ralph Cramden and lovable Ed Norton bring out the laughs as the show is seen being shot in the New York television studio. Alternating between the studio and Jackie’s favourite bar, this funny yet touching script is written by Sharyl Hudson and directed by Peter Muir with musical direction by Bill Sewers. Starring Alex Ryker as Jackie Gleason and Dan Anderson as Art Carney, a cast of characters brings the story to life.
"There was little rehearsal. Gleason liked it that way...and there were no second takes. The show went out "live". The sets were painted cardboard (with the only set of apartment doors that opened "outwards" instead of "inwards). Nobody imagined this short run series of half-hour episodes would rerun continuously everywhere in the world on television for the next 50 years...."
Come see Jackie and Art set the early television world on fire with comedy, music and song with this unique production.
