Updated: May 24, 2022

Date: December 4, 2021 Show: 8:00 PM Doors: 7:45 PM Location: The Playhouse - 10033 80 Ave, Edmonton, AB

Need to know what to buy your lover for Christmas? Or maybe you've got a mistletoe mishap on your hands? You've probably thought to yourself, "Hey, these problems would really benefit from having a man's perspective!" Especially if that perspective is largely based on what that man may have read in an online comments section. Well, we’ve got just the hot stallions ready to dispense their juiced-up wisdom. All The King’s Men returns to the Playhouse for a special winter holiday edition of the best worst improvised advice show.

Starring the original bad advice bros Gaz O’Lean and Marq, this parade of ultra masculinity is rounded off by teen heartthrob Jimmy Sympathy, badboy-sadboy Cole B. Cumming, and newly-minted bro Tyler Pocock. This testosterone-fuelled party can’t stop, won’t stop making you laugh.

Fall in love with the boys this Holiday season!

Supported on lights by Corina Dransutavicius (Rock "The Glock" Harding).
