Attending a meat draw at a legion is a Manitoba experience that ranks up there with going to a social.
The dependably funny, fast-on-their-feet ImproVision crew — Alan MacKenzie, George McRobb and Ed Cuddy — take advantage of their cosy legion venue by adding a twist to their games: three meat draws, with the winners getting prizes and becoming part of the show. Such is the strength of the veteran performers that they can take an average boring workday as related by the winner of the canned ham (FYI: don’t expect any steaks or ribs) and re-enact it with a bit of embellishment for plenty of laughs.
The improv games performed included a form of marshmallow torture and acting out random shows from the fringe program in different styles. The group has been together long enough to take any audience suggestion, no matter how silly or inane (Jamaican Tara Reid, anyone?), and riff on it.
And, if you miss anything, don’t worry: they end the night with a rapid-fire puppet recap.
