"The wildest, most thrilling ride you'll take in a theatre..."
- Stephen Hunt, The Calgary Herald.
"This Is Great Theatre" - Monday Magazine,
"On my way home, I imagined
that if cancer ever fell in love with me and some doctor had to tell me, I hope this big golden creature pops in my head so
I can laugh and not feel threatened. Bravo" - anonymous
CANCER - a deluded, egotistical ASS - goes on his
own journey of denial, anger, bargaining and acceptance when he discovers that the whole world hates him.
“This is Cancer is as genius as it is absurd, with a satisfyingly violent climax. The silliness
is rife but doesn’t overshadow the catharsis. Allow this remarkable show to spread all over your body. You’ll
do more than survive”
– The Edmonton Journal
“One of the weirdest and most brilliant shows the Fringe has ever seen”
– The Edmonton Sun
This Is Cancer mixes a potent cocktail
of comedy, pathos, sarcasm and genuine emotion. There is a charge in the air during Cancer’s audience interactions.
If you have ever wanted to confront Cancer about that last time he showed up, take your chance. But be warned...Cancer has
some serious balls.
- See Magazine
is usually no laughing matter, but when its embodiment is a charismatic man with a sexy accent and a disturbing gold lamé suit, it’s pretty funny. The show isn’t all
laughs; there’s some serious stuff here, as is only appropriate. Warning: audience participation is included, and cancer
drops a healthy dose of f-bombs.”
