Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
The Big Stupid Improv Show
Big Stupid is like that proverbial box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get, but you know it’s going to be good.
This perennial fringe laughfest led by CRUMBS’ Stephen Sim and Lee White — with DJ Mama Cutsworth supplying improvised musical accompaniment — features a rotating cast made up of touring fringe performers and local improv lights.
Alix Sobler (She’s Not There, 2009) was among the standouts on opening night, when the crew performed a director’s cut show.
Given five half-baked sketches, the audience votes for a favourite to complete. Pirates, aliens, star-crossed lovers — it can be a tough choice, but with Big Stupid, it’s always the right one.
— Pat St. Germain
