Golden Oldies - Pearle's Early Shows


PearleHarbour_canadian

Canadian Content-ed! 

The outsider's insider guide to the contemporary Canadian experience. Part late-night television, part mandated nationalism, better edutainment than 60 Heritage Minutes strung together in a row. Presented at Theatre Passe Muraille After-Hours.

Rebel Without A Clue

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world full of mad, mad, mad, mad people, massive corporations that iWatch you, governments that throw fits over fabric and how you wear it, and everybody's yelling at each other.

But fame has never been so tantalizingly close. Say the right wrong thing, upload the perfect fail video, or just go on the offensive: soon all of call-out culture knows your name. 

... Pearle who?

Pearle Harbour returns in this outrageous romp into our culture of outrage.

Presented at performance art venue Videofag.

Featuring sketch-comedy duo STEVIE THUNDER: Marcel Dragonieri & Kat Letwin!

The Ex-Mas Special

Pearle Harbour is working the overnight shift at the Purchasing Channel on Christmas Eve, hocking Slankets and the exercise alternative Hula-chair. But all Pearle can think is mele kalikimaka...

Revisit the classic Bing Crosby teevee specials of yesteryear with Pearle, complete with all the holiday fanfare, surprise cameos, and totally not-scripted impromptu musical numbers! 

Presented at performance art venue Videofag.

Suffer-gette City! (a municipal politics cabaret)

Pearle Harbour's big debut. In the chaos and carnival of the Toronto Mayoral election, a new face has entered the race: all-American world-wartime gal and political bombshell Pearle Harbour.

Proclaiming herself "manifest destiny, manifested," her platform is simple: is Toronto is ready to move into the big leagues, and defect to the U.S. of A? And if that's the case, will she finally feel at home?

Presented at performance art venue Videofag.

Featuring sketch-comedy duo STEVIE THUNDER: Marcel Dragonieri & Kat Letwin!
