3 guys, a girl, and a 2 drink minimum

Rated: 6 out of 10 [3 Stars]
By: John Chase (Director@winnipegonstage.com)

Three young stand-ups from the local comedy scene (Cara Lytwyn, Jason Funk and Dan Verville) take the stage with their latest bits, sprung from individually creative source material that will probably go over best with audiences closest to their own age bracket. Ms Lytwyn and Mr Verville contrast each other nicely with good performing rhythm in two very different styles. Mr Funk's delivery didn't seem quite as certain as the other two and hitched at times, though this may smooth out as the run continues.

The fourth comic listed in the Fringe programme is apparently no longer with the show; his slot is being filled by J. Williamez, who was its highlight performer. Mr Williamez has a local following, indisputable technical skill as a guitar-playing entertainer, and songs based on subjects so inappropriate for your grandmother that you will either find him completely hilarious, or wonder exactly what you walked into.

A couple of minor technical issues will still need to be worked out during the run, but opening night was nevertheless fun. If you're looking for some casual laughs at a very reasonable ticket price, "3 guys, a girl, and a 2 drink minimum" may be one to consider -- especially if you feel more at home in a comedy club and are still checking out this whole "theatre" thing. Three stars!
