Toronto Fringe: A rootin’ tootin’ wild west good time in Peter n’ Chris & the Kinda OK Corral

peter_n_chris_hand_gunsPeter n’ Chris (aka Peter Carlone and Chris Wilson) are back at Toronto Fringe, this time with their own brand of sketch comedy in Peter n’ Chris and the Kinda OK Corral – on now at the Randolph Theatre.

Peter Earp and Texas Chris become unwitting allies in the fight against an evil oil baron (inspired by Francis Underwood, Kevin Spacey’s character in The House of Cards) to save Peter’s farm, corral and beloved cow.

Hilarity and shenanigans ensue, in this show that is part scripted, part improv, part homage to movie westerns – featuring soundtrack bites from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Brokeback Mountain, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. I especially loved the dramatic saloon entrance slow pan from the boots up, the horseback chase scene, and that Peter and Chris both got turns at playing the bad guy.

Peter n’ Chris and the Kinda OK Corral is a rootin’, tootin’ barrel of wild west fun!

The show continues at the Randolph Theatre until July 12 – check here for exact dates/times.

In the meantime, Peter n’ Chris are launching a web series Hardly Men, based on the Hardy Boys, and you can help them out by contributing to their indiegogo campaign.
