The Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival is back and we were back in the Fringe Beer Tent talking to the artists of the festival. Meet artists from Edmonton, Canada and beyond in part two of three of our Forceful Fringe Promos. What It Is provides the artists with the chance to discuss their work in a casual manor before making them share their elevator pitch with Colton Taylor Thomas for the coveted CTT Stamp of Approval (trademark). Don’t waste any time – you’ve only got a few more days and 220 different plays to check out. Get this ep in your ear holes and get to the Edmonton Fringe!

Ep 121: XMas Special 2016 – The Great Dumpster Fire

Guests: Rebecca Merkley, Robyn Slack & Joshua Lee Coss

What It Is celebrates the holiday season with an annual tradition of trying not to promote the arts for once. Taylor, Brian, Mari and CTT welcome the hilarious Rebecca Merkley and the delightful sounds of Success 5000 for a discussion about projects, dog grooming and the year of the dumpster fire – 2016. Taylor attempts to get into the holiday spirit but generally avoids the topic as Mari aims to get him into the spirit of the season. The gang plays an intense game of Artist’s Checklist, CTT tries to look on the bright side, Success 5000 shares two songs and leads everyone in a rousing rendition of a holiday classic. Grab a festive beverage, hide from your family and toss the ep into your holiday ear holes!
