A Fundraiser in Three Acts
The Dandies (Dale Wells & Andie Leathley) presented their third annual comedy benefit show, Close Shave 3 — a night of comedy for Movember Canada. The benefit was held over three shows and raised $650. Through additional fundraising, the 2014 total is $1,000.
Master of Ceremonies
Starting a new tradition, we have enlisted our very funny friend, comedian Garrett Jamieson, to host this year’s Close Shave comedy benefit.
We proudly support and promote performers from diverse communities, even those who aren’t Trekkies!

Holodeck Follies: Q Meets Who – A Special Three Part Episode
Our love of sci-fi goes beyond Star Trek. For this year’s benefit show, we will let the audience decide whether we improvise Star Trek with some Doctor Who references, or the other way around. It will still be completely improvised and silly.
