HEY ABBOTT! - Another Classic Comedy Tribute Show

The Ellice Theatre, May 30 to June 2, 2012
Artwork for HEY ABBOTT! - Another Classic Comedy Tribute Show

Award-winning Abbott & Costello impressionists CHASE & HAMILL and their wacky cast re-mount their latest tribute to the legendary comedy duo!

When Bud and Lou join the carnival, they encounter multiple crazy characters. Zany antics ensue!

Another FAMILY-FRIENDLY hour of sketch comedy, featuring "WHO'S ON FIRST" and a NEW selection of old-time favourites.

As seen at VENUE #1 (MTC Mainstage) at the 2011 Winnipeg Fringe:
[4.5 STARS] – Ignite 107  /  [4 STARS] – Winnipeg Free Press

"Winnipeg's John Chase and Kevin Hamill certainly have the chops to pull it off. Their chemistry is terrific, and by time we get to the show-stopping "Who's On First" finale, the air positively crackles with comic electricity." – CBC

"Classic comedy at its finest. Don't just consider seeing this show, go see it." – Jenny Revue
