Rudolf Rocker Cultural Centre (Venue 21), to Saturday

Local troupe Outside Joke is an improv force to be reckoned with. Creating a new show every night, building from a single audience suggestion, these young Winnipeg actors can act and sing their way into and out of almost any situation.

On the night in question, a fantastic song about Community College fostered a mother of six’s dream to make something of herself and become a nurse, as babies were flushed through sewers, grilled cheese sandwiches were pined for and corpses sang.

The group works seamlessly together, obviously having the time of their lives keeping up with their own antics, and sweeping the audience along with them for the wild ride.

Laugh-out-loud funny, this is what improv is all about, sharp and hilarious, keeping us all in on the inside of the joke.

— Barb Stewart
