There are a lot of comedians and performers in Toronto who hail from Calgary, especially performers who started out improvising at the Loose Moose Theatre. (The theatre is on dry ground, but cancelled a string of shows due to road conditions during the recent flooding.) Many of those alumni are banding together for The Calgary Stamp-Aid Fundraiser, to raise funds for the Red Cross Alberta Relief Fund. Hosted by The Rumoli Bros, the bill includes Canadian comedy heavyweights like Ron James, Gavin Crawford, and Ryan Belleville; the star-studded cast of Fringe show The Soaps; and musical guests like Terra Hazelton and Jay McCarrol. It’s PWYC, though the comics hope you’ll throw in a $20 for the Red Cross—and bid on a wide variety of auction items between sets.
