Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
The DnD Improv Show: Five!
Oh, this little show’s grown up so fast — five years old already and still with mostly the same outrageously funny cast.
Heck, we suspect the 2013 edition of the nerdalicious DnD Improv Show features the best mix of characters yet, a Game of Thrones-y bunch, from the noble Sir Gregory Gallahad (dashing Toby Hughes, natch) to the adorable dragon Deloris (Katy Bennett, cheekily stealing the show in her best role of this series). There’s also a deliciously sinister talking chicken.
Look, it doesn’t take a bowl of magic pipeweed to understand why DnD sells out every time: take 14 of the best improv comedians in Winnipeg (Fraz Wiest, who plays zonked-out wizard Taxx, might actually be the funniest person in the city), give ’em swords and sorcery and decide their fate with dice. If you like awesome things, find a way to come and play.

From the Fringe program:
The DnD Improv Show is back for its 6th installment of EPIC ENTERTAINMENT!
Follow a cast of fantasy-inspired characters as they go on an adventure narrated by the Dungeon Master. Each show is fully improvised (so are the BATTLES) and continues where the last one left off.
Also, there are the 20-sided Dice of Doom, which decide the fate of the characters for better or worse! Roll your initiative…
