“It is impossible to summarize this spiritual experience as a viewer”
Catch the world premiere of GET LUCKY at the Toronto Clown Fest JUNE 1, 2 and 3rd 2018!
Can a man get in touch with his femininity without losing his balls? Full of bold moves, masterful dance and hilarious wit, award winning character comedy artist Candice Roberts hit’s the spirit of our current cultural shift with her gender bending physical comedy. Sexy, stunning and uproariously funny, Get Lucky is a provocative take on the life of a simple “hoser’s” journey to becoming a better man.
Meet Larry, from Moose Creek, BC Canada; he “ain’t no idiom”, and he’ll show you that he’s handier than a pocket on the back of a shirt. He’s funnier than a one legged cat tryin’ to scratch a turd on a frozen pond, but hey, If you can’t laugh at yourself how the hell are you going to laugh at other people?
Larry is the theatre’s custodian. He’s here to “shoot the shit” with the audience and wants to prove that he has a heart on of gold. He’ll show you that he’s worthy of a good woman and can quit swearing, quit drinking and even take up mediation.
Through Larry, Candice takes an opportunity to comment both comedically and incisively on the social conundrums and controversial topics of today. She speaks to her experience as a woman raised in rural BC in the 80’s as played through a “family-inspired” red-necked man.
Visits home became much more entertaining as she began to develop this alter-ego. All of the topics you might not want to talk about over Thanksgiving dinner got a heck of a lot more funny and relevant.
In a form that embraces the full spectrum of the theatrical experience, including tap-dance and audience participation, Get Lucky tackles feminism, gender constructs, politics, small-town Canadiana and religion.
