Middle Raged is a hilarious live sketch comedy revue starring Geri Hall (22 Minutes, Second City), and Gary Pearson (MadTV, Corner Gas), that explores life between 30 and 65 - from raising kids, to financial stress, to dealing with elderly parents, to going to more funerals than weddings, and even trying to keep romance alive through "Outlander" role play in the bedroom. Critics are raving at the special chemistry and comedy of Gary and Geri as they send up the time of life when the bloom is off the rose, but the thorns are sharper than ever.
Geri Hall is best known for 5 season as a regular on This Hour Has 22 Minutes, has also appeared in numerous feature films like Shall We Dance, Hairspray, and is a Gemini Award winner. Gary Pearson is best known as a writer for such shows as MadTV, 22 Minutes, Corner Gas, JFL All Access, and Sunnyside, which we co-created. Gary has won the Writer's Guild Award, and the Canadian Screen Award, as well as being nominated for multiple Canadian Screen and Gemini Awards.
Both Geri and Gary were on The Second City Toronto main stage, and have extensive backgrounds in comedy. The duo recently appeared at Toronto Fringe, had a sold out run of 4 performances at the Oakville Centre, and made a big splash at the Edmonton Fringe selling out the Westbury Theatre for several standing ovation performances, and had another standing O at the Westdale in Hamilton.
