QUAL­ITY COM­EDY

NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe Preview -

The Fringe is al­ways full of com­edy per­form­ers of all stripes – im­prov, stand-up and sketch.

New Sec­ond City Tourco mem­ber Mandy Sellers and her part­ner Laura Sal­vas bring their sketch savvy to Two Weird Ladies Bomb The Fringe (from July 6 at the He­len Gar­diner Phe­lan), while the fan­tas­tic Van­cou­ver troupe

Petern’ Chris ( Peter Car­lone and Chris Wil­son) re­mount their T.O. Sketch­Fest Au­di­ence Choice-win­ning Peter n’ Chris And The Mys­tery Of The Hun­gry Heart Mo­tel (from Wed­nes­day, July 4 at the Ge­orge Ig­nati­eff), a great show­case for their phys­i­cal and ver­bal com­edy skills. Sketch and im­prov comic Isaac

Kessler, fa­mil­iar to Fringe au­di­ences for 2-Man No-Show, is part of the en­sem­ble cast of Vin­cenzo Alib­erti’s A Fu­neral For Clowns (from July 6 at the An­nex Theatre), which is def­i­nitely not for those who find red-nosers scary.

And stand-up Dy­lan Gott de­liv­ers 50 min­utes of funny about be­ing fat, sex­u­ally in­ad­e­quate and creepy in

Dy­lan Gott: Medicine Woman (from July 5 at the Solo Room).

One guar­an­teed good time is late en­try The Soaps (from July 6 at St. Vlad’s), an im­pro­vised soap opera. Set against the back­drop of 1812, the con­tin­u­ing show fea­tures some im­prov pi­o­neers, in­clud­ing

Paul Bates, Lisa Brooke, Jan Caruana, Chris Gibbs and Sandy Jobin-Be­vans.
