Fresh from a hit season at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe and sell out run at Soho theatre in London, The Bear Pack return to Sydney for an exclusive one-night only fundraiser in December, with two blockbuster halves.

This is a show that could be about an old abandoned ice-cream factory; a clown who loses custody of his kids; two strangers who coincidently meet at a retro 1980’s roller derby and realise they’re long-lost brothers. It could be about absolutely anything—and that is the beauty of The Bear Pack.

The Bear Pack is Sydney’s Barry Award nominated Steen Raskopoulos (Whose Line Is It Anyway? Australia, BBC’s Top Coppers) and Carlo Ritchie (The Checkout), accompanied by Ange Lavoipierre on the cello. Their show is 60 minutes of improvised storytelling inspired by the audience’s suggestions—The Bear Pack will create the kind of stories your grandparents wish they could tell you!

With no idea what thrilling and hilarious twisted tale might emerge, audiences are guaranteed to be left in awe of the quick-witted and creative genius of two of improvised comedy masterminds.

The jam-packed first half will see musicians and improvisers combine for one hell of a mash up. Montaigne, Mansionair and another super special mystery guest will have their original songs brought to life by some of Australia’s best improvisers, including: Tonightly’s Bridie Connell, The Feed’s Jenna Owen, and other stellar improv cast Cale Bain, Will Erimya, Kate Coates, Reuben Ward, Edan Lacey, Orya Golgowsky, and Zoë Rae Latimer.

Guaranteed to make you feel again, The Bear Pack is the steam-ship of hilarity you’ve been waiting for. Don’t let it sail away without you this December!

The show is dedicated to the memory of Elliot Miller, a young man and tremendous improviser whose presence is dearly missed. Profits donated to Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.
