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. Songs for a New World Order is a dynamic hour of comedic music that touches on the serious issues plaguing our world like: slow walkers, conspiracies, magazine sex advice, aliens and more. The show debuted at the 2017 Toronto Fringe Festival, and earned an officially extended run at The Second City’s John Candy Box Series, which showcased their favorite comedy picks of the fringe. The show then toured to the 2018 Montreal Fringe Festival earning a ‘Best Fringe Festival Production’ & ‘Best Lead Actor (Musical)’ nominations at the 2018 BroadwayWorld Montreal Regional Awards, and to the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it received audience praise, and a ‘Best Comedy Show’ of the fest nomination at the Amused Moose Comedy Awards. A live comedy album recording for the show is in works for January 31st, 2019 at The Social Capital Theatre 9:30pm.

Relaxing with a cup of Isle of Harris gin tea at @eteaket reflecting on the best show I’ve seen at the free fringe this year!

Fantastic Free Fringe available, including the talent that is @AnestiDanelis performing #sfanwo at @HanoverTap . Despite one of his guitar strings breaking, the music and comedy was on point! Well worth a visit! @TheFreeFringe #intotheunknown
