Winter is coming, and so is one of the hottest shows this season. The Harold Experience features some of Canada’s favourite improvisers, January 3-14 at the Next Stage Festival.

The Harold Experience gives long-form fans and non-improv audiences alike a chance to enjoy The Harold performed by pros. Comedy A-listers Rob Baker, Ashley Botting, Adam Cawley, Matt Folliott, Ken Hall, Becky Johnson, and Paloma Nunez weave together real-life stories and made-up madness for a show as unique as it is hilarious. Directed by Rob Norman, it’s unscripted theatre at its best.

This is the first festival piece for Toronto’s newest long-form company, The Assembly. Less than a year old, The Assembly is already home to 14 long-form teams, four monthly shows, and a thriving education program. (If they maintain this pace, they might just have their own festival next year.)

Whether you’re a Harold enthusiast, a fan of great storytelling, or just want to see Toronto’s funniest people make shit up (brilliantly) on the spot, The Harold Experience is sure to sell like hotcakes.
