Canada's Funniest Live Comedy Show BeerProv Makes Return Appearance to New York City.

New York, NY, June 22, 2014 --( BeerProv, created by Jim Robinson, is the one of a kind live comedy experience that serves up plenty of beer and plenty of laughs! The show allows the audience to control the fate of the performers as improvisers compete against each other between sips of beer.

The event began back in 2010 in Toronto, Canada and has featured a brilliant set of performers including Colin Mochrie, Sean Cullen, Mark Little, Second City Alumni and many of the best improvisers in Canada. The show has twice been featured during the Canadian Comedy Awards Festival at Toronto's famous Comedy Bar.

The rotating cast of comedians improvise hilarious sketches on the spot based on suggestions from the audience. Improvisers are eliminated by audience vote after each sketch until only one member of the cast remains - the last surviving improviser is dubbed the "BeerProv Champion" and is given the opportunity of drinking beer from the Mug of Champions.

After the successful US debut of BeerProv in April, a performance which was voted as The #1 Thing To Do in New York City by, Robinson and his cast will once again take the stage in The Marlin Room at Webster Hall on July 16th at 8pm.

Amanda Mactas of Manhattan With a Twist attended the most recent performance and wrote “BeerProv is a sure thing [...] that literally puts you in danger of spitting your beer out from laughing so hard. Creator Jim Robinson does a great job [...] has put together an entertaining and energetic show.” BeerProv has long been hailed as “ of Canada's most uniquely hilarious live comedy shows.”

Jim Robinson, creator of the hilarious event, is an actor, writer, improviser and comedian from Ottawa, Canada. Robinson's credits include; many Second City productions, “founding member of the award winning sketch troupe Fratwurst, and he has performed in both the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival and the New York City Sketch Comedy Festival.”
