Fringe veterans Peter n' Chris bring their cheeky Christmas Carol spoof to the Metro Studio

Fringe veterans Peter Carlone and Chris Wilson better known as the duo Peter n’ Chris present their own spin on Scrooge in their new Christmas spoof A Peter n’ Chris-tmas Carol, showing at the Metro Studio, Dec. 16.

As the story goes, a grumpy Chris is visited on the night before Christmas but wastes most of his time with the first Ghost. Now, he must decide which of the two other ghosts he wants to meet before sunrise in order to change his ways.

A Peter n’ Chris-tmas Carol is everything you love about A Christmas Carol, performed the only way Peter n’ Chris can; fast, hilarious and smart.

Carlone and Wilson – both graduates from the University of Victoriahave performed in Just For Laughs, JFL42, The San Francisco Sketch Comedy Festival and the Chicago Sketch Fest. They were the featured act at the 2013 and 2014 Toronto Sketch festival where they earned back-to-back Audience Choice awards. They are contributing writers to CBC Radio 1’s sketch comedy show The Irrelevant Show, CBC Punchline, have contributed video content to CollegeHumor and write for the web-series White Ninja staring Paul Scheer.

Show starts at 7 p.m. at 1411 Quadra Street. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at Ticket Rocket by calling 250-590-6291. For more information visit intrepidtheatre.com
