Songs for a New World Order
a rhythmic remedy for a heartless world

I’ve got some bad news. Our messy dumpster-fire of a world is hurtling through space on a one way ticket to its own demise, and the only way we can save it, is to sing...for a new world order. After a successful premier at the 2017 Toronto Fringe Festival, and an officially selected extended run at The Second City Toronto’s John Candy Box Series, musical comedian, Anesti Danelis, brings his delightfully dark acoustic comedy to the 2018 Montreal and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals in hopes of spreading his message of love, and woke-ness. One city, with a fringe festival, at a time.

With a style that sits deadpanned between Flight of the Conchords, and Tim Minchin, Anesti Danelis serenades you with his dynamic, witty, and ridiculous songs that has earned him official selections to the Chicago Sketchfest (2017, 2018), Montreal Sketchfest (2017), and Fresh Notes Fest (2018). Directed by Tricia Black (Songbuster: An Improvised Musical NNNN - Now Magazine, The Sketchersons: Sunday Night Live, Tweed and Company) Songs for a New World Order is a surreal take on the mundane struggles threatening our humanity. From the deep dark secrets we suppress (shhhhh) to the slow walkers we can’t surpass (why can’t they just f*@#-ing move?), these catchy songs will leave your heart full and your mind woke. But not just regular woke. Woke AF...AP. Woke as fast as possible.

*Update: Anesti Danelis has been nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award 2018 for Songs for a New World Order*

Anesti Danelis delivers the funny with a hefty side of heart. Not only were his songs
expertly composed, his lyrics were freaking hilarious.
Danelis is goofily charming, and self-deprecatingly hilarious...If musical comedies are
your thing Songs for a New World Order will surely delight you as it did me.
Blessed with a lovely voice, really good timing, and an excellent deadpan
