Resolutions are futile

Resolutions Are Futile (January 13, 2018 – S6E1)

“The Romulans and the Bov have trapped the crew of the USS Hummingbird. How will they keep their resolutions now?”

Holodeck Follies – Spontaneous Star Trek

Canada’s only spontaneous Star Trek show returns! The Dandies have moved the show to prime comedy time at Comedy Bar – the second Saturday each month.

Saturday, January 13, 2018 8 p.m. sharp

Comedy Bar – Cabaret space
945 Bloor Street West, Toronto ON M6H 1L5 (map)
Tickets: $15 at the door.
Advance tickets ($10) through the Comedy Bar website ($1.25/ticket service fee)

For our Trekkies and Holodeck Follies fans: The action continues

The season five finale episode ended on a cliffhanger with the crew of the USS Hummingbird facing two deadly rivals. You’ll be on the edge of your seats as the improvised drama and adventure continues in the season six opening episode.

“Holodeck Follies is one of the funniest shows in Toronto!” – Space Channel

For our non-Trekkies: Two amazing opening acts

Ingrid Hansen & Steven Chmilar: this artistic power couple (dance-theatre and visual artist) return to the show to share new songs.

Morgan George: a veteran sketch and improv comedian, Morgan has broadened his focus to include stand-up.

And to keep the show moving at warp speed, our host, comedian Hisham Kelati (stand-up, 2nd Annual Star Trek Show, Comedy Appetizer, Joke Marmalade, The New Material Comedy Show)

The Dandies are Chris Casselman, Danielle Cole, Alan Leightizer, Zachary Mealia, Jamillah Ross, Andie Wells & Velvet Duke, and Jason Zinger (Musical Director)

“The Dandies delivered a show that could be described as ‘engaging’.” – Ilana Lucas, Mooney on Theatre


The emotional intelligence of the crew of the USS Hummingbird comes into question as 9 of 10 wrestles with her newfound ability to feel. Meanwhile, the Bov – a biped bovine race that seemed innocuous – poisoned the crew and hijacked the ship. Hurtling to Earth using the new SMORE drive, they seem intent on galactic domination. The Romulans have come to help but things go awry.

We were treated to non-Trekkie jokes from comedians Hisham Kelati and Jennifer McAuliffe, and music from Xave Ruth.


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.
