Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

WE are not mak­ing this up... but he most cer­tainly will be.

Im­prov-com­edy mas­ter Colin Mochrie is drop­ping by the Winnipeg Free Press News Café on Tues­day at 1 p.m. for an ex­tremely un­re­hearsed chat about life, hu­mour, Cana­dian showbiz and how it came to be that a guy who makes up funny stuff for a liv­ing ac­tu­ally sat down long enough to write a book.

Mochrie, who was re­cently named this na­tion’s com­edy per­son of the year at the Cana­dian Com­edy Awards, is on a cross-coun­try tour pro­mot­ing Not QUITE the Clas­sics, a col­lec­tion of short sto­ries in which the newly-minted au­thor took the first and last lines of fa­mous literary works and then made up all the amus­ing bits in be­tween.

Join Mochrie and Free Press en­ter­tain­ment writer Brad Oswald at the News Café for this in-per­son in­ter­view, or watch it as the event is streamed live at www. win­nipegfreep­ress.com.
