CANCER gives the cabaret performance of a lifetime!
In this critically acclaimed and award-winning one-man, satirical cabaret Bruce Horak brings CANCER to life.
A cancer survivor himself, and one of Canada’s only legally blind professional actors, Bruce Horak brings a fresh and funny perspective to a disease that too many of us will face and that so many of us could use a good laugh at.
Co-Created and Directed by award-winning director/performer Rebecca Northan (Canadian Comedy Award – Best Sketch Group, Gemini and Dora Award nominee, CTV’s “Alice, I Think”) "THIS IS CANCER:” will leave you wondering how you could fall in love with such a deadly performer.
WINNER Outstanding Actor in a Musical or Comedy (Betty Mitchell Awards, Calgary, 2007), a TWISI award for outstanding contribution to the arts in Nova Scotia, and Critics' Pick at the Winnipeg and Edmonton Fringe Theatre Festivals.
"The wildest, most thrilling ride you'll take in a theatre" - Calgary Herald
“This is Cancer is as genius as it is absurd, with a satisfyingly violent climax. The silliness is rife but doesn’t overshadow the catharsis. Allow this remarkable show to spread all over your body. You’ll do more than survive”– The Edmonton Journal
“One of the most brilliant shows the Fringe has ever seen”– The Edmonton Sun
"This Is Cancer mixes a potent cocktail of comedy, pathos, sarcasm and genuine emotion. There is a charge in the air during Cancer’s audience interactions. If you have ever wanted to confront Cancer about that last time he showed up, take your chance. But be warned...Cancer has some serious balls."- See Magazine
"This is CANCER is deservedly popular, one of the shows at last year's Fringe and this year's Fringe that you must see, if at all possible. It's so, so wonderfully strange and cunning that describing the show seems a sacrilege. It's a difficult and magical experience that inspires introspection, anxiety and, with any luck, a hint of relief." - Todd Babiak, Edmonton Journal
