IN THE BEER GARDEN
Bears: they’re majestic but it’s dangerous to get too close.
Oh, wait, no–I meant feminists, human feminists.
This is a tale of a Canadian lady learning about the famously powerful creatures, about being seen as one, and using that raw bear energy to eat entire tables of food, impressing family and scared restaurant owners alike. Hammer combines sketch, stand-up, and personal storytelling to make a show that’s as good as gourmet honey, but less expensive.
Kate Hammer (Just for Laughs, POP Montreal), is an improvisor, writer, and performer–a sort of artistic haberdashery on two very small feet (making her easy to push over). She makes big topics feel effortless, even as she balances delicately on her exceedingly petit trotters. Performing in Canada, the U.S., and now living in the U.K., you'll want to catch this dynamic act before she runs for the stars on her worryingly compact hooves.
