Comedy Plus Time Equals Tragedy
Set to the backdrop of a live sketch-comedy performance, Comedy Plus Time finds Tim and Dana (Winnipeggers Tim Gray and Dana Smith) in the awkward moment when an acting duo becomes more than friends and co-workers.
Elapsing over the course of a performance of their hilarious sketch show (which Gray and Smith actually perform), the newly single Dana and the already single Tim realize they are both single at the same time. Hilarity and awkwardness ensue.
Penned by Smith, Comedy Plus Time is a sly show-within-a-show where the sketches take equal footing with the “drama” behind the scenes, from Morley the Teenage Moose to all-occasion rappers-for-hire (they do funerals).
Very funny with just the right touch of pathos, Comedy Plus Time equals terrific.

From the Fringe program:
Isn't it funny how a little bit of sex can change everything? Two friends in the midst of performing their sketch show experience this problem firsthand. Complete with Hall and Oates, an angsty teenaged moose and a staggering fear of vulnerability, this show lifts the curtain to the drama behind the sketches.
Starring Dana Smith (Lady Skits, 5 Stars – Uptown) and Tim Gray (Full Screen Ahead, 4 ½ Stars – Uptown), and directed by Rory Fallis (Producer, Rogue Cop, 5 Stars – CBC).
