Success 5000 is an Edmonton-based duo specializing in musical comedy. They have toured the country, performed on CBC’s The Irrelevant Show, and been featured in comedy festivals such as Vancouver Sketchfest, Toronto Sketchfest, Philly Sketchfest, Seattle Sketchfest, Sled Island and Improvaganza. They have released two full-length comedy albums: a studio recording entitled Laughcore, and a live album, We’ll Fix It In Post, recorded at the Sewing Machine Factory in Edmonton. Self-described as “musical comedy that doesn’t suck,” their songs blend absurd humour with biting cynicism. Reviews have praised their show for its “self-depreciating, nihilistic, and sarcastic humour that’s both current and genuinely hilarious.”
Tickets: $12 / $16 at the door (plus HST and fees)
Taste That is thrilled to be the host company for the Comedy Country Summer Comedy Series.
The County’s Artisanal Comedy Troupe: TASTE THAT! is a ragtag group of Prince Edward County residents including an author, a brewer, a beekeeper, a councillor, a painter, an innkeeper, and two comedy producers. The group is well-known regionally for their semi-monthly shows, and their annual Christmas comedy productions (It’s a Wonderful ‘New’ Life, The Nightmare After Christmas, No Room at the Inn) that take an irreverent look at life in Prince Edward County. Their shows feature a hilarious mix of improv and scripted comedy including their signature recurring segment, The County Roundup – a local newsdesk that earns bigtime laughs at small town news.
