CBC Radio's The Irrelevant Show - The University Theatre


Every week, the hilarious cast of The Irrelevant Show brings you a buffet of award-winning comedy sketches and songs, recorded before a live audience. While those shows have always been recorded in and around Edmonton, this year The Irrelevant Show has travelled to Toronto and Winnipeg, and will make it's Southern Alberta debut as part of this year's YYComedy Festival.  The show ranges all over the comedy map, from the everyday to the surreal. You'll hear scenes about family life, dating, relationships and the workplace. The show offers an irreverent take on pop culture - from the news, to game shows, to superheroes. And some sketches will simply be flights of imagination - to other times, other planets and other universes.

The Irrelevant Show is back for its fourth season on the CBC Radio One network, and will be doing a live taping at the YYComedy Festival. "The live recordings are a fantastic experience",  producer Peter Brown says. "The actors are performing the sketches for a live audience for the first time; the crowd gets to see sound effects and music created right in front of them: suddenly the whole show comes to life right before your eyes. And the audience loves it when things go wrong -- our cast is made up of very funny improvisers -- often the between-sketch banter is a highlight of the night".
