WEYBURN - Starring Geri Hall and Gary Pearson, “Middle Raged” is a hilarious sketch show, exploring that time of life when you’re running out of time.
The show will be the next performance for the Weyburn Concert Series, set for the Cugnet Centre stage on Wednesday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Just a note, the show is not suitable for children, as it uses adult humour and is intended for mature audiences.
The show is for couples dealing with the madness of child-rearing, empty nests, aging parents, financial stresses, and even trying an “Outlander” role play to spice up the bedroom.
The show features song parodies and sketches by Hall (One More Time, This Hour has 22 Minutes) and Pearson (MadTV), and music by Jeff Rosenthal.
Geri Hall is the raspy-voiced redhead who spent five seasons co-starring as a roving reporter and anchor on the news desk of the long-running CBC hit television show, “This Hour Has 22 Minutes.” Geri got her start as a cast member at Toronto’s legendary sketch and improv destination, The Second City.
If you didn’t see her getting handcuffed by the Prime Minister on 22 Minutes – and staying in character all the while – then her face may also be familiar from dozens of other shows and television commercials, including Astrid And Lilly Save the World, Little Italy, At The Hotel, the CBC’s The Blobheads, Little Mosque on The Prairie, The Ron James Show, The Mercer Report and Murdoch Mysteries … and yes, that jalapeno cheese commercial.
She is the recipient of awards and/or nominations from the Writer’s Guild, Canadian Comedy Awards, and the Geminis.
Gary Pearson has written for such shows as MadTV, 22 Minutes, Corner Gas and the Ron James Show. He created and produced That’s So Weird for YTV and with Dan Redican, co-created Sunnyside for CityTV.
He has won the Canadian Screen Award, Canadian Comedy Award and the WGC Award. He toured Canada and the U.S. with The Chumps, and was in The Second City Toronto Mainstage company. He has appeared in multiple TV shows including Sunnyside, The Kids in the Hall, The Newsroom, 22 Minutes and Baroness Von Sketch.
His three novels, including his most recent, “Marooned in Space!”, are available at Amazon.ca.
