Being Winnipeg’s longest-running and most prominent improv troupe comes in handy when you’re having a bit of an off night.

Such was the case with Crumbs, back for their 13th consecutive festival appearance. The Thursday-night show saw performers Stephen Sim and Lee White take the audience suggestions of gravedigger and elevator repairman and run with them for an entire hour. Or rather, they ran, slipped, rallied, floundered, surged ahead, fell behind. But the supportive audience rooted for them all along, even when they appeared about to give up at one point, and some guy in the third row was signalling a vigorous thumbs-down.

Sim and Lee could save themselves (and the audience) some strain by allowing some more suggestions, rather than making the initial ones last the entire show. Regardless, these guys are just so much fun to watch! And you know they’ll be even more impressive on a good night.

From the official Fringe Festival program:

CRUMBS is back for a record-breaking 13th season here at the Fringe. Fresh off their world tour, which blew away packed houses all across Europe, they are now ready to blow you away. DJ Hunnicutt improvises the soundtrack and video, taking this already awesome show to the 13th dimension of awesome.
