Irrelevant Show CBCThe Irrelevant Show is back for its fourth season on CBC Radio One with live tapings in the Edmonton area. Every week, the cast of The Irrelevant Show brings you a buffet of award-winning comedy sketches and songs, recorded before a live audience in and around Edmonton.The show ranges all over the comedy map, from the everyday to the surreal.

You’ll hear scenes about family life, dating, relationships and the workplace. The show offers an irreverent take on pop culture – from the news, to game shows, to superheroes. And some sketches will simply be flights of imagination – to other times, other planets and other universes.

Produced by Peter Brown, led by head writer Neil Grahn, the writing team includes members of the cast as well as writers from Edmonton’s rich comedy community, including Chris Craddock and Dana Anderson. This season’s shows will be compiled from live performances in late 2012 and early 2013 and include some of Edmonton’s funniest comic actors: Mark Meer, Donovan Workun, Jana O’Connor, Marianne Copithorne, Neil Grahn and Leona Brausen.Musical guests include Sheldon Elter and Ryan Parker from Edmonton cult band the Be Arthurs, and gifted actor/singer Jocelyn Ahlf accompanied by Jan Randall on piano.

The Irrelevant Show has won both a Canadian Comedy award and a medal at the prestigious New York festivals.  The point out on their Facebook page that this is the last week of voting for the Canadian comedy awards. You can support them by registering and voting.
