Double Dare Live

May 3, 2019

Calling all kid Einsteins and intrepid adventurers - Double Dare, the messiest game show ever to grace the small screen in the late 80s and 90s, is stepping out onto the stage for a series of live shows! Having recently enjoyed a revamp, the popular Nickelodeon production became a kids TV staple thanks to its rip-roaring physical challenges, which often included copious amounts of slime, plenty of pie-in-face moments and human-sized ice cream sundaes.

Penn & Teller

May 10, 2019

Penn and Teller's brand of awe-inspiring illusions mixed with buddy-comedy shtick has kept the duo at the very top of the magic profession for the past 30 years. Their trademark is the updating of worn out or archaic routines, such as bullet catching or their recent adaptation of the classic bag escape trick (their version involved a lot of helium).

With a resume bursting with achievement, Burton Cummings is one of Cananda's most beloved sons. His long and illustrious career saw heady rock-stardom with The Guess Who, who became the first Canadian band to reach the Billboard #1 and sold millions across the nation. As a solo artist, he's continued to evolve and create his rock and bluesy tunes, including Stand Tall and My Own Way to Race.

Comedian, writer and actor Patton Oswalt has spent the last decade headlining comedy clubs and theaters all over America in addition to nine seasons playing the role of Spence on CBS's hit show, King of Queens. He also voiced "Remy the Rat," the lead voice in Pixar's blockbuster hit, Ratatouille. From pop culture trivia to politics, there is rarely a subject on which he isn't well-versed and guaranteed to make his audiences consider, long after the laughter has finished.

Featuring special guests 'The Steep Canyon Rangers', expect an evening of banjo-tinged interludes and singing punctuated by the side-splitting humor and charisma of these comedy greats.
