9 talented actors; 9 improvisors who don’t have a clue; 1 hilarious experiment.
The eighth edition of 50/50 is coming to the Just For Laughs festival! After selling out at last year’s OFF-JFL, 50/50 is back with its biggest and baddest cast yet.
In each of the show’s 9 scenes, an actor who has rehearsed lines from a play is paired with an improvisor who has no prior knowledge of what the actor has rehearsed. The result is silly, high-energy and seriously funny. This is a theatre experiment you’ll never forget.
This year’s JFL shows features special guests Leigh Cameron and Kirsten Rasmussen (Second City Mainstage), Coko and Daphney (SheDot Festival, Duofest) and Léa Rondot (Ape Island, Toronto Sketchfest) as well as many of your local favorites including ace comediennes, award-winning actors and superstar improvisors. Don’t miss out!
