PNC Kinda Ok Corral banner

.

If you’re a fan of the Fringe or independent theatre, you’ve probably seen at least one of Peter n’ Chris’s hilarious sketch comedy shows. They’ve been performing on the Fringe circuit for years and are local to Vancouver. From exploring their bodies to solving mysteries, they are an award winning duo who never fail to captivate every audience they encounter….and they’re back to have you rolling in the aisles again! Theatre Wire is proud to bring you the first show of The Fringe Presents, Peter n’ Chris and the Kinda OK Corral running December 3-5 at Studio 1398.

Now, we could whet your appetite by trying to describe Peter Earp dropping his mimed gun or Texas Chris as a flamboyant cow named Winnifred but really, we couldn’t do it justice. You’ll have to make plans to go see Peter n’ Chris and the Kinda OK Corral for yourself.

While you anxiously await December’s arrival and the opening night of the show, we give you more…Peter n’ Chris!
