Toronto Fringe favourites Peter n’ Chris are back again this year with their own special brand of sketch comedy shenanigans in Peter n’ Chris Present: Here Lies Chris, running at Randolph Theatre.
When Chris (Chris Wilson) dies in a tragic accident, Peter (Peter Carlone) must travel through time and space to find a replacement Chris in an alternate universe.
Here Lies Chris features hilarious physical comedy, including classic comedy bits, chase scenes and interdimensional travel sequences – all interwoven with real-life personal conflict between our boys. From the hysterical opening, where the boys air drum along to Fun’s “Some Nights” – Peter’s arms flailing like Kermit the Frog – to the movie homage (Lord of the Rings, Braveheart, The Matrix, Stand By Me), kick-ass soundtrack and heartfelt conclusion, your eyes and seat may very well be wet (with laughter and pee, respectively).
Peter n’ Chris Present: Here Lies Chris is a big fun therapeutic trip through time, space, friendship and sketch writing partnership.
Peter n’ Chris Present: Here Lies Chris continues at the Randolph Theatre until July 11 – check their Fringe show page for exact dates/times. Meantime, why don’t you go ahead and give Peter n’ Chris a follow on Twitter.
