GARY JONES & RICHARD SIDE in
"STAR TREK: IMPROV COMEDY SHOW"
SCHEDULED FOR THE SATURDAY NIGHT DESSERT PARTY (now sold out)
Actors Gary Jones and Richard Side bring over 45 years of combined
comedy improv experience to the CREATION ENTERTAINMENT stage (on
Saturday) as Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock. In a hilarious 40-minute show,
Gary and Richard will create, with the help of the audience, an impromptu episode
of the beloved original STAR TREK television show. With audience suggestions
ranging from "the name of the planet," the "special power of the planet's evil
queen," to the "true nature of the relationship between Kirk and Spock," their show
can't fail to have audience members rolling in the aisles. Their on-stage history
and chemistry is undeniable and their improvised, joke-writing skills are
lightening-fast and razor sharp! And, as these brilliant comedians pay homage to
STAR TREK on it's 40th anniversary,don't be surprised if some of their pointed
barbs also skewer every other sci-fi action adventure show while they're at it.
GARY JONES has been recurring as "Sgt. Walter Harriman" for 9 years on
the smash sci-fi phenomenon, STARGATE: SG1. But, he's been a comedian
since day one, touring with the famed Second city comedy theatre and
even improvising at the home of Microsoft's Bill Gates!
You seen comedian and actor RICHARD SIDE on a number of Sci-Fi shows
including STARGATE Sg:1, ANDROMEDA and an OUTER LIMITS episode in
which he played the organizer of a UFO convention. Richard's impressive improv
comedy credits include representing Vancouver and winning the first
ever "JUST FOR LAUGHS" world improv tournament in Montreal.
