Brainiac Five Presents: An Eclectic Aggregation of Erudition and Information
Until now, Brainiac Five has lived under the radar. These men and women have gone about their day-to-day business, leading regular lives, blending in with society. They have been your Sunday school teacher, your date to the Yacht Club annual social, or running your local used book sale. They have been authoring your favourite comics and meticulously writing in to your local newspaper. All the while, they have been meeting to expand their own minds, minds which were already prodigiously gifted.
Now, they come to the Toronto Fringe Festival to share their knowledge and experience with you. Brainiac Five Presents: An Eclectic Aggregation of Erudition and Information is on at the Tarragon Extra Space (30 Bridgeman Avenue) for the duration of Fringe. Each of seven shows will focus on a different theme, such as the creation of a great work of art, or a scientific innovation. This completely improvised show is bound to regale you with hilarious, wildly inaccurate facts of the world created on the spot by the cast, and even goes so far as to present the invention of the Brainiac Five; The Cognoprojector Psychotron, a helmet which allows time travel.
This show is produced by Deejay Dayton, aficionado of alternate history, and directed by Robert Ariss Hills, a long-standing pillar of the Toronto improv community. It stars Deejay Dayton, Dustin Freeman, Alex James, Liz Jukovsky, and Amanda Petryschuk, all Toronto improvisers.
