At the moment, we are very excited for a few things on the horizon. First off, Bad Dog Theatre is getting their own space! They are taking over the former Baltic Avenue space at Bloor and Ossington. Their venue Launch Week lifts off August 11 and we are extremely lucky to be opening for our buddies from Vancouver, The Sunday Service on Wednesday August 13. Come see the show, and check out the entire Launch Week schedule here. We will also be popping into other ensemble formats throughout the week.
We are both joining the expanded and reorganized Bad Dog Theatre Company as individual improvisers. What does that mean? Possible regular shows for the Sufferettes (our personal schedules permitting) and guaranteed involvement in a bunch of other formats they are producing through 2014-2015. This is a big moment for improv in the city, folks. You all should be as excited as we are.

Hey guys, the time is drawing nearer. On Sunday we take over Videofag in Kensington Market to present our own stand-alone show, VideoHag. It will be an hour-and-change long show wherein we make improv up based on archival footage found and curated by our friend, Zack Russell. It's the first time we have done a show that interacts with video, so we are pretty stoked.
We also want to give a huge thanks to Cheryl Hann for making the absolutely perfect poster above.
Doors will open around 7:30 and tickets are available for cash at the door.
Videofag is at 187 Augusta, just north of Dundas in the Market.

Just a couple of shots with our buddy, Nancy, from during and after our first ever Dora Awards. What did we learn? Never discount the celebrity status you can squeeze out of an awards night. Thank you, Nancy. And thank you to the whole cast and crew of All Our Happy Days Are Stupid for being the best team ever. Next stop, New York City! See y'all there in February.

The nominees for the 15th annual Canadian Comedy Awards came out today and we are very happy to announce that we got a few nods! We were nominated in the Improv Troupe category and we were both nominated individually in the Female Improviser category.
If you are a voting member of the CCAs, you can vote for us as of June 24th. But, given our counterparts in the individual category (Kirsten Rasmussen, Ashley Botting & Caitlin Howden) and troupe category (Rapid Fire Theatre, Die Nasty, Bonspiel & The Sunday Service), you may as well just close your eyes and click anywhere. It is outstanding company to be in.
We can't wait for the festival! See y'all in Ottawa in the fall.

We are totally delighted to report that the play we were in together last year, All Our Happy days Are Stupid by Sheila Heti, was nominated for FOUR Dora Awards this year, Including Best Ensemble in the Indie Division (and what an ensemble it was). This is the first time either of us has been nominated. The whole project was very grassroots and lots of blood, sweat and white paint went into it, so the award nods are really great. And we get to go to the party!
This on the heels of an announcement that the original cast (of fourteen) will be going down to New York City in February for an American premiere supported by McSweeney's and The Kitchen. We can't wait!
Now to plan our outfits for the Doras...

Written by and starring two extremely funny and talented men, Dan Beirne and Mark Little, Space Riders is basically the story of two shmos who turn magic...in a spacey kind of way. It also co-stars Amy Matysio, Kyle Dooley and Eugene Clark. Oh, and Kayla plays an intersex space villain and Becky plays three progressively degenerating clones.
See it now!

The Sufferettes just wrapped up our very first-ever endurance improv show - 50 straight hours of large-ensemble adventure as part of The London Jam. What an interesting experience it was. What thrills! What madness! Set on the intergalactic cruise liner, Xanadu, we experience genuine manic hysterics, performed through perceptive hallucinations and galavanted around in a surprising wealth of actual good narrative and relationship. We were extra fortunate to end up in long narrative arcs with old pals Chris Craddock and Tess Degenstein and new pal, Alex Bartram. We could get into tales of the hijincks our characters (Dame Heave Garbage and Nurse Fart Garbage from the planet Shrit) got into, but really, it would not make much sense. Also, lots of it is gross.
Huge thanks to Adam Meggido, Extempore Theatre and the entire production and support crew for making the festival and improvathon happen and inviting us into it all. Also to the fantastic cast of improvisers, a great many of whom were unknown to us before our rendezvous in Xanadu. We were blown away!
Pictured above is a collection of shots from the after party. This wasn't even close to the entire rotating cast for the weekend. Photos by Claire Bilyard, who also stayed up for most of the show to document our madness.
Oh, and for those interested in purchasing either Kitten Juice or tickets to the space premiere of Pippen!, please email our sales rep at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wow, guys, only ten days until we embark on an epic journey to do improv for an uninterrupted and ungodly amount of time. If you are in London, England, you should come out for some (if not all) of it! Check out the video above for more tantalizing details!

We are coming back to London, friends!
The Sufferettes are going to be in London for ten days this January to do some shows, participate in a 50 hour improvathon and teach a bit.
We are also planning a show with our buddy Mae Martin. We will post more info about that soon.
