Bull Skit Comedy’s Christmas show runs Nov. 22-23

Bull Skit hits the stage this week with more of the improv and sketch comedy local folks love on Nov. 22-23 at 8 p.m. at the Scott Block.

Tickets are available at the door or online in advance at www.BullSkitComedy.com.

They are $23 each for adults and $18 for students and seniors age 65 and over.

Bull Skit’s unique and hilarious blend of improv and original sketch comedy has made it Red Deer’s favorite source for laughs, organizers say. This month, Bull Skit is delighted to welcome musical guest Garrett Olson, a local singer/songwriter. Olson has an alternative rock sound which is rooted in powerful melodies and emotionally charged lyrics.

This month, Bull Skit is also bringing audiences a touch of holiday spirit.

Laugh the night away with sketches that include a pair of elves shoveling coal for all the naughty children, Santa Clause battling a young boy named Ebenezer, a parody on Rob Ford and Frosty the Snowman’s white powder addiction.

Also favorite characters like Alice & Sarah and the Bar Story boys will be stopping in to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.

There is also a cash bar. Please note that Bull Skit contains mature language and adult themes.

Meanwhile, Bull Skit is also presenting a show for the entire family – Calf Skit featuring the beloved character of Pinocchio. It runs Nov. 23rd at 2 p.m. at the Scott Block Theatre. Tickets are only available at the door. They are $20 for a family and the kids receive free popcorn.

This family-friendly show is a chance for the audience to get involved and tell the story, and Calf Skit uses a unique blend of improv comedy as well.

Audience members can choose their own adventure as the format for each show while enjoying the retelling of classic fairy tales with each story always having a moral as well.

This month, Calf Skit presents the story of Pinocchio, who begins when the woodcarver Geppetto builds a marionette to be his substitute son. A benevolent blue fairy brings the toy to life.

And while the puppet is not yet a human boy, he must earn the right to be real by proving that he is brave, truthful and unselfish. But even with the help of Jiminy, a cricket who the fairy assigns to be Pinocchio’s conscience, the marionette goes astray.

Doors open at 1:45 p.m. and the show starts at 2 p.m. at the Scott Block.

The brainchild of Jenna Goldade and Amy Erlandson, Bull Skit was started five years ago as a way for local actors to gain a foothold and create opportunities for themselves in the industry. Originally branded as a cabaret, comedy and drama production, Bull Skit has evolved into a blend of improv and sketch comedy.

This past May, Bull Skit officially marked their five years of making Red Deer laugh by bringing back some of their most memorable sketches.
