Alberta improv teams battle for crowd approval at Bull Skit Comedy fundraiser

Pies can be thrown Saturday, May 25, at Red Deer’s Scott Block Theatre

A “cage-match”-style improv fundraiser will be held by Bull Skit on Saturday at the Scott Block in Red Deer.

Teams from Red Deer (Bull Skit Comedy & Improv Jelly), Calgary (Kinkonauts) and Edmonton (Grindstone Theatre) will be battling to outwit each other — and win the crowd’s approval.

They will also have to survive the audience’s “diabolical nature,” since onlookers will determine the fate of team members.

This means pie throwing, leg shaving, and hot sauce sipping are all fair game and can be incorporated into sketches at the whim of the crowd.

“Keep them alive or see them fall! Who will get the final shaming at the end? Who will win the Bull Skit Comedy trophy? Only you and time will tell!” say organizers.

Proceeds from this improv competition will support Bull Skit Comedy, a non-profit organization moving into its 12th season. The money will go towards theatre space rentals, updating equipment and ensuring a successful 2019-2020 season.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are $15 in advance from www.bullskitcomedy.com, or at the door.
