Travis Bernhardt and Chris Ross scribble outside the lines of improv comedy with their high energy, hilarious, and surreal two-man show. Their extreme physicality, endearingly strange characters, and commitment to entertain *by any means necessary* have surprised and delighted audiences across Canada. They recently were awarded the Pick of the Fringe at Vancouver Fringe Festival 2017, with a holdover show on Sunday, September 24 at Performance Works!

We will be inspired by Chris & Travis, the Fringe, and other theatre works on September 26 at Cafe Deux Soleils! Join us for comedy on Commercial starting at 8 pm – tickets just $7 or $5 for students!
