Get ready for a comedic voyage of cosmic proportions as we journey to see a new show, The Text Generation, by Asiansploitation, one of Toronto's funniest sketch comedy troupes.
The show explores the virtues and tragedies of our digital age.
The comedy troupe is giving our group a discount of up to 25-per-cent off regular tickets!
Asiansploitation brings “Sketch Comedy with a slant” to the George Ignatieff Theatre with its all-new show, The Text Generation.
Leave Captain Kirk and his crew at the edge of the universe, as the comedy troupe brings its unique “slant” on sketch comedy to the stage.
The Text Generation features all-new material that will “engage” your funny bone as the troupe tackles a broad range of issues from the beautiful drudgery of a morning commute to our culture's dependency on technology and the deliciousness of Asian sauces.
You'll see the Cookie Monster reveal a life-changing secret, George Takei meet his son and you’ll see what every Trekkie would die to see - Data falling in love.
If our flight path holds true, you might even spot the elusive Space Shark. Step into Asiansploitation's world as our capable crew entertains with new scenes, audience-influenced sketches, and several new signature song parodies. Set your phasers to funny as you assimilate into The Text Generation!
The six-member writer/performer ensemble will feature Byron Abalos, Gene Abella, Lana Carillo, James Cheng, Franco Nguyen and Jeff B. Santos. At the helm of the show is Second City alumnus, Andrew Currie. More information.
