Charles Presents: Moby Alpha
An hilarious homage to classic sci-fi and bombastic literature, Moby Alpha tells the story of a mad captain's quest for revenge on the amorphous spacial energy cloud that temporarily took his leg.  More simply, Moby Alpha is Moby-Dick in space, but funny.

Written and performed by Charles (Chuck Armstrong & Charlie Stockman), the Seattle comedy duo Centerstage Chicago called "absolutely brilliant", and about whom Culture Vulture Victoria wrote "these are highly trained professionals, people, and this is seriously good comedy."  Winners of best "Best Writing" and "Best Sketch Comedy" at the 2012 LA Comedy Fest.

The show runs Friday and Saturday nights from March 28th through April 12th. Doors at 8pm, show starts at 8:30pm.

$12 advance, $15 at the door.

Praise for Moby Alpha:
"A clever satire that manages to prank sci-fi and classical culture in the same trip."
- Edmonton Sun

"The two energetic and well-prepared actors set their phasers to 'funny' and fire away with brisk wordplay and bright physical comedy."
- Winnipeg Free Press

"Nerds will rejoice in [the] impressive attention to detail."
- Edmonton Journal

"There is great hilarity as the actors use every sci-fi cliche in the book and more. Do yourself a favor, and see this dynamic duo."

"Stockman and Armstrong move smartly from character to character, and throw in comedic homages to everything from Alien to 2001: A Space Odyssey to Isaac Asimov... Their ingeniously-designed space helmets [give] the show an other-worldly feel."
- CBC Manitoba

"[Moby Alpha] makes the audience feel like they are venturing through space... Nerd hilarity ensues."
- Charlebois Post
