DotDotDot probably isn’t the sharpest improv at the fest, but it might be the sweetest. Edmonton’s Rapid Fire Theatre cohorts Jessie McPhee and Joleen Ballendine offer a refreshing, relationship-based take on the genre, be it familial, romantic or otherwise.

The geeky chic of these two young performers (accompanied by a live guitarist) is so darn cute, it makes you want to take them home in your pocket. In a good way, not a creepy one, of course.

As with most improv, skits are up and down through a performance, but highlights from this particular show include separated Siamese twins Emili and Sara (who later rejoin with Velcro) and a young man who moves chairs for a living (and who wears a fresh bear skin to a date with a vegetarian).

Results may vary, but a chuckle can be expected.

— Barb Stewart

From the official Fringe Festival guide:

A mix of awkward comedy and dysfunctional, yet lovable, characters, DotDotDot is a fan favourite at Edmonton’s Rapid Fire Theatre. This improvisational troupe will have you laughing to the point of tears, then crying until it's funny. DotDotDot. It’s like falling in love for the first time, every time.
