Banish the messy middle woes with some proper belly laughs! Starring Geri Hall (This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Second City) and Gary Pearson, (MADtv, Corner Gas), Middle Raged is a hilarious sketch comedy show that explores the ridiculous nature of life from 30 to 65; when the bloom is off the rose, but the thorns are sharper than ever. The humour comes from relatable situations and challenges: from the struggle to write your will, to the effort to keep things spicy in the bedroom (Outlander role play anyone?). It explores child-rearing in confusing modern times, financial struggles, and trying to keep your spirits up despite attending too many funerals.
Middle Raged has been enjoyed by sold out audiences in Toronto, Hamilton, Oakville, Edmonton—and now it’s your chance to enjoy the performance in Surrey. This is a truly funny show that explores that time of life when you're running out of time! This laugh-out-loud show is also party of the Comedy Series.
Audience advisory: For ages 19+. Some mature language and themes.
About Geri Hall
Geri Hall is the raspy-voiced redhead who plays the role of Christine in the funny, scary, and awesome tv series, Astrid and Lilly Save the World, airing on Crave in Canada. Geri spent five seasons starring as a roving reporter and anchor on CBC’s iconic Canadian satire, This Hour Has 22 Minutes, where her hilarious character, Single Female Voter, made national headlines during the 2008 federal election. If you are Canadian and didn’t see her getting handcuffed by the Prime Minister on 22 Minutes, then her face and voice and comic charms may be familiar, from dozens of other TV shows, films, and television commercials.

She is the proud holder of some nice statuettes from the Canadian Comedy Awards, the Writers Guild, and the Gemini Awards. She won the honour of Best Actress at the 2017 Valencia Web Fest for her starring role in Tim Hamilton’s Perverts Anonymous, which won Best Comedy at The U.K. Webfest. She also won the award for Outstanding Guest Actor in an Interactive Narrative Drama at the 2013 LA Web Fest for her role as Gifted Sarah in Ruby Skye P.I.
