The holidays are upon us! It’s the time of year to break routine and overindulge on all levels. Baking, booze and brie are now daily staples and sleep takes a back seat to merriment and general debauchery. Speaking of unbridled revelry, the “Reindeer and Beer” comedy show hits the Wiggle Room in all it’s red velveted glory this Sunday at 8 p.m.
The line-up for the evening may not be familiar to Montreal Comedy aficionados. That’s because the bulk of the comedians are from Toronto. The show is the brainchild of comic Ronen Geisler who, along with buddies Josh Infald, Sai Kit and Canadian Youtube prankster “Kivork” are currently selling out rooms in their hometown and who are hoping to expand their brand.
Geisler is no stranger to filling venues; he runs a bi-weekly show in Toronto called “Cowboy Comedy”, which typically sells out. As he puts it, “It’s the real wild west of comedy – completely uncensored with no rules or boundaries. The line up is never announced, so the audience never knows what to expect!”
So what can they expect on Sunday night at the Wiggle Room? According to Ronen, an extreme mix in styles and humour. “Sai Kit is one of the most unique clean comedians in Toronto while Josh Inflad brings a dark side of humour that really fucks with your head”. As for Geisler himself, he considers his comedy style more of a blend between light and dark. “I usually mix up my set with a clean joke followed by something dirty, then go clean again. Like someone who washes their dirty hands 20 times a day.” Hosted by local funnyman Paul Ash, the show will also feature a special burlesque number because, as we all know, no visit to Montreal’s sexiest venue is complete without one.
As far as post-show shenanigans go, you can stick around afterwards to hang out and drink with the comics (I suggest sampling some of the delicious signature cocktails the venue has to offer). Consider it a more fun and demented version of your office Christmas party. Plus you can stay out late guilt-free as next week is pretty much a write-off, work-wise.
