WHISTLER, BC – Scooby Doo meets Psycho in Peter n’ Chris’ quirky comedy The Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel Saturday, April 22, at Arts Whistler Live!
The Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel is the most acclaimed show from Peter n’ Chris. It’s a take-off of the horror and mystery genre, paying homage to some favourite movie moments by spoofing classic films like The Shining and Psycho.
The Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel features two oblivious friends stranded at a mysterious motel with a murderous motel manager. Can they make it out alive? Or are they too preoccupied with having to share an uncomfortable single bed to notice murders happening all around them? This hilarious murder mystery is full of twists and turns, and guaranteed to get the audience laughing.
“The first act is sort of a comedic play and the second is going to be some sketches that we recently performed at Just for Laughs in Montreal,” says Peter Carlone. “Our first act will be a bit of a murder mystery/Hardy Boys spoof, and I think the audience can expect to have a light-hearted and awesome time. All we are after is to have a good time with the audience and get some hot laughs!”
With an extensive comedic resume under their belt Peter n’ Chris have built a strong following across Canada and the US with their fast-paced, cinematic, and extremely physical style that pushes comedic theatre to its limits. Peter n’ Chris are a three-time Canadian Comedy Award winning sketch troupe from Vancouver, BC. They’ve performed in acclaimed festivals such as Just for Laughs, The San Francisco Sketch Comedy Festival, and the Chicago Sketch Fest. They also lend their comedic talents to CBC Radio 1’s sketch comedy show The Irrelevant Show, CBC Punchline, and have contributed video content to CollegeHumor.
Before the performance, check out the new Teeny Tiny Show in The Gallery, grab a drink, and enjoy live music from Stephen Vogler. Tickets at artswhistler.com
