Just like a classic episode of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ the audience members play a pivotal role at a Popalopots show, where they bring suggestions to life with stories, characters, and jokes that either knock it out of the park or, at times, fall flat on their face. Either way, you’ll be in for a night of unforgettable laughs.

Tickets are $15 with general admission seating.

Popalopalots is Back Again!

January 20, 2018 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger in that movie where he’s trying to save the boy who would grow up to save humanity, said “I’ll be back”? Well, imagine, instead of Arnold, it was Popalopalots Improv Comedy who would be back. And instead of trying to save humanity, Popalopalots just wanted to make you laugh.

Performing their make-it- up-on- the-spot sketch comedy at The Guild in Charlottetown, Popalopalots will have you laughing when they succeed, and laughing even harder when they fail.

Having the Last Laff

Don’t miss The Last “Laff” show. Newfoundland’s longest touring entertainers plunge into some new and classic material. You’ll be treated to new ballads and be delighted to hear some old classics including: Sarah, Saltwater Joys, Da Barbacue.

Buddy delivers a side-splitting dissertation on the life of BAACH and he and Chaulkie give mainlanders some crucial advice when encouraging a story from a Newfoundlander. Ray has a few new titillating tunes on the Carbonear computer as well as a dandy recitation. And Chaulkie might sing the blues as well as a new song about beautiful Corner Brook.

Come witness the spectacle which is Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers. These three musical and comedic craftsmen are assisted as always by their venerable bassist, Byron Pardy.

From Sketch comedy to poignant ballads dressed in sweet harmony, their ranting and raving has something for everyone. You will certainly connect or reconnect to The Rock.

The last Laff is at The Harbourfront Theatre Saturday, April 8th, at 8 PM.

Alls I’m Saying

Alls I’m Saying is brazenly tentative! Like a sniper with the hiccups, Derek Edwards takes aim at life’s galling moments, exhales slowly and jerks back the trigger. A riotous evening of homegrown comedy — like taking a ride in an open golf cart with a good friend and a 6 pack.

From Vegas to St. John’s, this Just For Laughs veteran is universally considered to be among the comic elite. Certainly his peers think so, as evidenced by the fact that he’s a four-time nominee, and winner of Best Standup Comic – Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”

Clearly the critics agree: “5 STARS – the funniest man on earth” – Winnipeg Free Press; “4 STARS – the crowd howled” – Victoria Times Colonist; “still the funniest man in Canada” – Toronto Sun; “Edwards reigns as the King of Canadian comedy” – Charlottetown Guardian; “Derek Edwards is hysterical” – Calgary Sun; “Edwards takes stand-up to next stage” – Georgia Straight; “the epitome of timing & storytelling” – Halifax Chronicle Herald; “the comedian’s comedian” – London Free Press.

Alls I’m Saying – Derek Edwards’ new 90-minute stand-up comedy show, …a richly textured and enthralling ‘cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority by the consummate Canadian Comedian.

Derek Edwards is at The Harbourfront on Sunday, April 2, at 7:30 PM.
