Geez Louise Comedy Fun-raiser July 17 2014 for Broad Theatrics

Geez Louise! Comedy Fun-raiser July 17, 2014 for Broad Theatrics.

Since arriving in Victoria in 2010, Kirsten Van Ritzen and Ian Ferguson of Broad Theatrics have been very busy individuals.  Their company has created two Victoria Fringe Festival productions (All My Day Jobs, Fringe-provise Me!), initiated the very popular live improvised serial Sin City (entering its 5th season this fall with a brand new setting and cast of characters), produced She Kills Me (a TV series featuring women comics) for APTN (with Drama Camp and Less Bland Productions), and staged the first Funny Women Festival.  In addition, Van Ritzen teaches well-attended improv and stand-up comedy classes, and appears on stages across the region

Ferguson, with Less Bland Productions, has been hard at work on Gone South—a documentary about Canadians in Hollywood, coming to a film festival near you soon.

Now you can get your fix of mid-summer laughter with a night of comedy, and support Broad Theatrics too at the Geez Louise! Comedy Fun-raiser.
