The tapings are free. You just call and leave a message. And then cross your fingers and wait for them to call you back. When I spoke to the person at CBC I learned she had over 700 voice mail messages, so I consider myself very lucky to have seen three shows this season.
The joy of attending a taping is seeing the performers spontaneous humour and how they interact with each other. The live taping is interspersed with pre-recorded segments. While we watched those, the cast watched with us or talked quietly and comfortably with each other.
Left to right (below) they are: Geri Hall, Mark Critch, Cathy Jones and Gavin Crawford.
I was very surprised when in saying their final good byes at the end of the show, they said they'd see us in the fall. Fall ? What happened to spring ?
Apparently the show's contract has been shortened.
(insert your own biting, snippy comment about Conservative government here)
If Gavin is going, that means they need a new cast member.
I think I know just the right person for the job ...
