After putting on 7 shows since our grand-opening, we’re happy to say we’ve sold-out for every single one. Think you can keep it going? November is setting a new M-B record for number of shows in one month, with four Friday shows and one special Saturday to get your live comedy on.
NOVEMBER 3 - M-B COMEDY #95: HEADLINERS FT. NOUR HADIDI
You may have seen Nour at Hillside Fest this year, headlining the LOL Comedy show on the Sun Stage. But it’s not just Guelph festivals, Nour has been blowing up the comedy scene with appearances at Winnipeg Comedy Fest, New York Arab American Comedy Festival, and Memphis Comedy Festival. Aside from all those awesome credits, she also writes for CBC Comedy and The Beaverton TV show.
NOVEMBER 10 - M-B COMEDY #96: BIRKENSTOCK-HOLME SYNDROME
After studying for months with Canadian Comedy Award winning sketch writer Roger Bainbridge, our crew of improvisers finally planned a whole show in advance. People who came to our sold-out grand-opening Gala got the first view, but now we’re doing the show one more time so everyone can laugh along.
NOVEMBER 17 - M-B COMEDY #97: DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS AND IMPROV
It's Dungeons and Dragons and improv. There's a reason improvisers love this game. Those who play D&D could benefit from improvisational skills and vice versa. We're bringing the worlds together for a night of funny and fantasy complete with a D&D character sheet workshop lead by Dungeon Master Vince Smith, an improv character-building workshop which culminates in one epic show. Sounds like we all rolled a natural twenty!
NOVEMBER 18 - M-B COMEDY #98: LGBTQ+ STAND-UP SHOWCASE FT. ASHLEY MOFFAT
Celebrate inclusion and comedy with one spectacular LGBTQ+ stand-up. Our headliner is the incredible Ashley Moffat. A frequent festival darling, she has performed at Montreal Sketchfest, Toronto Pride, JFL42, and on a televised gala at The Winnipeg Comedy Festival. It’s going to be great having her back on our stage.
NOVEMBER 24 - M-B COMEDY #99: ROYAL CITY HEROES FT. AMY DENHE and ELLA HENDERSON
It’s Guelph’s improv comedy show about our amazing city and humans within it! This month’s hero is founder and owner of Minga, Amy Denhe, and her “business love” Ella Henderson. Minga provides the platform for locals to share their homesteading skills with the community. It’s crafting, cooking and comedy rolled into one, in what is perhaps the Guelphiest show we’ve ever done.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
The end of one Improv semester, means the start of another. Exciting times are coming as we start up two more Level One Improv classes in Guelph, and for the first time ever, a satellite Level One classroom in Kitchener. Joy is on the other side of a yes, so what are you waiting for?
