Makin' Up The Funny!

The Gas Station Arts Centre is proud to present the 2014 Winnipeg if... Improv Festival.
The very first Winnipeg if... Improv Festival happened all the way back in the year 2000. It’s hard to believe that the futuristic sounding year 2000 is now so far in the past. But here we are in 2014 and we all have computers in our pockets. For this year’s futuristic Winnipeg if… Improv Festival we will be teleporting in performers from Germany, Vancouver, Edmonton and from the other end of the our Galaxy (because we have the technology). Tickets for the Winnipeg if… Improv Festival are available through the Gas Station Arts Centre by calling (204) 284-9477 or using that fancy internet and purchasing them online by going to www.gsac.ca or www.improvfestival/blogspot.ca and following the links. It is the year 2014 — we should all be buying everything online, shouldn’t we?
The talent at this year’s festival includes:
Kevin McDonald from “The Kids in the Hall,” the seminal Canadian sketch comedy TV show from the ’90s. The much loved comedy of Kevin McDonald, who lately has been calling Winnipeg home, will be showcased in this festival in the “Cold Read” show, as well as guesting with Winnipeg's own CRUMBS (both shows happen on Saturday, October 4).

Through performances, screenings, artist talks and site-specific installation we will showcase a broad and inspiring range of approaches and concepts that relate to this years theme, keeping you surprised, engaged and thoroughly stimulated.
