The improv gods are fickle. Sometimes they smile on performers and sometimes they laugh out loud.

While a couple of the five likable young men in Winnipeg’s Parking Lots Improv hit the ground running, most had to work hard for the funny in their opening fringe performance.

Luckily, they hit their stride midstream, spinning a fractured tale set in an ice cream parlour into a mildly perverse take on cults, hot-fudge hangovers and hotdogs of happiness.

There were a few false steps along the way, but ultimately, this comedy was worth the trip.

— Pat St. Germain

 

From the Fringe program:

From the people that brought you Choose Your Adventure! Five characters. One location. Every night, a new batch of characters, made up on the spot, find themselves in entirely improvised situations. They rob a bank or run a castle or have a concert or just hang out in a mall with a crazy security guard! We have no idea! You can help us make a special show every time. The results may be comedic or dramatic, but they are always concocted in the heat of the moment. So sit back and relax… and enjoy the show.

Cast: Jesse Bergen, Luke Cecelon, Jonathan Kornelson, Michael Ostry, Colin Ward
