The Supporting Act Podcast #023 with Mark Forward

Posted by Matt Moskal | Wednesday, May 7, 2014 @ 8:39am

There are few Canadian comedians operating on the same level as Mark Forward. He is an absurd storyteller and an unusual talent. His debut stand-up comedy album, Things I Thought Of, was released earlier this year. Forward is now self-producing comedy shows to claim ownership over his future as a performer.

Mark and I spoke over the phone from the UMFM studio to a pub in Toronto, ON. While Forward sipped on a pint of Guinness, we talked about the frivolous awards, morning radio shows and superfluous language.

Album Review: Kurt Metzger - White Precious

Posted by Tony Hinds | Monday, July 28, 2014 @ 6:15pm

Kurt Metzger's (@kurtmetzger on Twitter) hilarious new stand-up special, White Precious is a refreshingly dark and misanthropic way to spend an hour. Fans already familiar with his popular podcast, Race Wars will not be surprised by the candidly abrasive tone. Metzger gets away with this material because it is also intelligent and thoughtfully conveyed. Undoubtedly, Kurt Metzger is one of the most underrated names in comedy.

A Walkthrough of New Image College and New Image Entertainment

Posted by Mark McLeod | Monday, July 21, 2014 @ 1:47am

The first thing you notice when you step off the elevator in Vancouver's Standard Building -- home of New Image College of Fine Arts -- is that this isn't quite the educational learning facility you're expecting. Backed by a lush, almost new age-feeling interior -- which serves as the sign in desk for both the in-house spa and the acting/esthetics school -- I suddenly wasn't sure what to expect. After all, when you're expecting a rather cold and business-like lobby and you get something out of the movies, you tend to be a bit taken off guard.

Have you ever wished you could be your favorite superhero or movie character at Halloween? Do you have dreams where you wished you were Hellboy or The Hulk or an undead zombie? I mean, really be those characters, not just wear a lame store-bought costume? What if I told you that there's a school in Vancouver that can not only transform you into whatever your imagination might dream up, but that they can also give you the skills to do it professionally?

Posted by Tony Hinds | Tuesday, May 27, 2014 @ 9:50am

Fans of comic Myq Kaplan (@myqkaplan on Twitter) will not be disappointed by his latest, Small, Dork and Handsome. Kaplan's unique style, a rapid-fire clever verbal assault on the audience, lines nearly overlapping one another, seems to have intensified since his previous, Meat Robot.

Trailer Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Posted by Andrew Burns | Tuesday, May 20, 2014 @ 7:41pm

Yesterday the second trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy dropped after days of mini teasers and screenshots had been hitting the web. If the fans of the comic series weren't sold after that first trailer they are now. But the real test will be for all those non-fanboys out there, will this be a film that the average movie-goer would want to see? Before I make my case that the answer should be an emphatic "Hell YES!", first take a look at the new Guardians of the Galaxy below to judge for yourself:
