BOWSER AND BLUE UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
Thu, 10 November 2016, 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM EST
George Bowser and Rick Blue write and perform music and comedy. Their newest work is the Musical,"Last Night at the Gayety", which opened at Montreal's Centaur Theatre on April 21, 2016.
They appear in theatres and concert halls across Canada, and since 2007 they have been featured in the Canadian Snowbird Extravaganza concert series, both in Canada and the United States.
They have appeared frequently at the Just for Laughs comedy festival, most recently in the 2008 edition, and they can often be seen on CBC television and the Comedy Channel in shows compiled from those appearances. Their Christmas CTV special "Two Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire" was nominated for a Gemini award.
They also perform at special events, such as fund raisers, annual dinners and awards galas across the country.
They have written and performed in many theatre shows, most recently "Schwartz's – the Musical"(2011), inspired by Bill Brownstein's best-selling book about the Montreal delicatessen. "The 25th Century Belongs to Canada"(2008), and "The 4 Anglos of the Apocalypse" (2006) - a comic perspective on the last 30 years of politics in Quebec - were collaborative works, written and performed with film-maker and humorist Josh Freed, and award-winning cartoonist Terry Mosher (Aislin). Previous shows include "The Paris of America," (2003), and the smash hits "Blokes," and "Blokes Deux."
In 2003 they collaborated with Terry Mosher to produce "The Illustrated Canadian Songbook", which comes with a companion CD.
Colorectal Surgeons around the world are familiar with them through the song "Working Where the Sun Don't Shine", which was first heard on "Madly Off In All Directions" in 1997.
They have recorded with Supertramp's Rick Davies, and with Katrina and the Waves. They also recorded a song with the late Blair and Gary MacLean, Canada's legendary "MacLean and MacLean."
They have recorded 13 CDs on their own "You Guys" label, and four for Montreal's Justin Time label.
Bowser and Blue provided the music for the NFB animated film "Scant Sanity," by John Weldon, and for the TV show "Misguided Angels." The instrumental guitar music for that show, "Red Guitars," may be heard in the auditorium between shows at B&B concerts.
