The Dandies go back to school (Sept 8, 2017)

(Toronto, Ontario – for immediate release)

Holodeck Follies – Spontaneous Star Trek

Want this first short week of school to feel even shorter? Want laughs this weekend and can’t wait for Orville on Sunday? The Dandies hear your plea. After a successful weekend at Fan Expo Canada, the improvisational comedy troupe returns to Comedy Bar on Friday, September 8, 2017.

The Dandies boldly go where no one has gone before: Holodeck Follies – Canada’s only Star Trek parody for Trekkies and non-Trekkies alike! The Dandies improvise a new Star Trek episode based on audience suggestion and interaction.

PREVIOUS SHOW RECAP (Ujilli Chillin At The Lake – S5E7, aug. 11, 2017)

The crew of the USS Hummingbird were possessed by holodeck Moriarty and attacked by tequila-drinking hecklers. And yet, she persisted.

We were joined by Ilana Lucas with a rousing Voyager parody (Stan Rogers’ Barrett’s Privateers) and a break from Star Trek with jokes from stand-up comedian Alan Shane Lewis.
