Roman Danylo Live! Performance Lineup Grows!
Posted: Wednesday, February 23rd 2011
Red Deer native Neil Grahn will be sharing the stage with Canadian comedy star Roman Danylo, and local theatre troupe Against the Wall Theatre have been confirmed as performers in Danylo’s Improv Jam for the March 18th CentreFest fundraiser - Roman Danylo Live - at the Scott Block in Red Deer.
Neil Grahn is currently a star and writer of CBC Radio’s The Irrelevant Show. Neil has been in the TV business since 1990. He began his television career writing and starring in the comedy series Three Dead Trolls in a Baggie and soon realized many of the key creative decisions were being made by the people behind the camera. He crossed the creative floor in 1995. Grahn wrote and directed and produced the Gemini Award-winning lifestyle series Taking It Off. He won an AMPIA award for Get A Laugh, a one-hour special on Street Theatre, and was nominated for a Gemini in 2008 for a comedy/documentary series he wrote, directed and produced called Fish Out of Water. Recently, Grahn has directed The Family Restaurant, X-Weighted and Fish Out of Water for television. He also kept touch with his comedy roots by head writing and performing in The Irrelevant Show for CBC Radio One. And he continues to stay busy in the comedy world with national radio, live improv comedy, short films and comedy pilots.
Topping off the night with a little comedic chaos, Roman invites local improvisers in each city to join him onstage at the end of the show for a short improv jam. We are very excited to announce that Danylo has invited the crew from Against the Wall Theatre to take part in this Improv Jam. Against the Wall Theatre is a diverse group who works in theatrical experiences from sketch and improv comedy to explorative controversial theatre. They are probably best known for Bull Skit! comedy nights, which have become a must-see event in Red Deer.
