The Carnegie Hall Show is a unique improvised comedy event presented by multiple Canadian Comedy Award Winners The National Theatre of The World; Second city alums Naomi Snieckus (CBC’S Mr. D) and Matt Baram (CityTV’s Seed) along with perpetual special guest and professional British man Chris Gibbs.
The show is an evening of improv and variety. Singers, dancers, acrobats, puppeteers and even the occasional magician surround the improvisation – first, an original format – The Retrospective - After getting a suggestion from the audience of "an event to celebrate", the tuxedo and boa-clad cast take the audience on a timeline retrospective, looking back on the greatest improvised scenes ever performed based on that event as they make them up from scratch before their very eyes.
The second half of the show is an improvised old-fashioned radio play. Getting a small suggestion from the audience, the cast proceeds to weave a story replete with witty dialogue, commercial breaks and occasional on-air emotional breakdowns.
You never know who will be playing at The Carnegie Hall Show! Past guests include Colin Mochrie, Scott Thompson, Maestro Fresh Wes, ‘Puppets Who Kill’ creator Jon Pattison, and many more.

Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.
Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
The great Townes Van Zandt once said there are two kinds of music: "The blues and zip-a-dee-doo-dah."
According to this, Mirel Wagner's self-titled debut falls solidly into the blues category. "Songwriting can hardly be more minimalistic, no-frills, more strict as Mirel Wagner's sparse music," according to German magazine Spex; we agree.
