LIVE.. AT YOUR EVENT.. IT’S THE CAST OF THE IRRELEVANT SHOW!
An hour of sketches and songs tailored for your audience by CBC Radio’s award-winning comedy troupe.
OUR TRACK RECORD
The Irrelevant Show was one of CBC Radio’s most successful comedy programs. It drew an audience of more than 750,000 listeners per week, won multiple Canadian Comedy Awards and sold out theatres across Canada.
In seven seasons on air, we recorded more than a thousand sketches and songs. So whatever your group or event, we have material that will strike a chord with your audience. We’ve done numerous sketches about sports, medicine, education, politics and the legal system. Beyond that, many of our greatest hits look at the absurdities of daily life: dating and marriage, business, parents and children, office politics, air travel, etc. We also have lots of material about pop culture – we cover the waterfront from Stuart McLean to Star Wars.
And we can write material specifically for your group or event.
Here’s another great entertainment option. We’ll put an exclamation mark on your gathering with a brand-new mini-musical all about you.
We also do a theatre show! It’s called The Cast of the Irrelevant Show: Doing our Best Here’s a video trailer.
