Fifty Shades of Dave

Fifty Shades of Dave is an erotic parody of The Vinyl Café. All the warmth and wit of Stuart McLean’s beloved show but with a naughty twist.

Tell us about the show.

Featuring three original stories that thrust Dave and Morley into a series of sexual misadventures, Fifty Shades of Dave offers sharp writing, warmth, and a spot-on impression of Stuart McLean saying naughty words. A bit risque but never filthy. Fifty Shades of Dave reinvigorates this Canadian classic with a sex-positive message.

Why should someone come see your show?

Come if you like funny stories, well told. Or you miss Stuart McLean’s stories and you want a loving reminder of his great gifts to Canadian culture. Or, you kind of dislike Stuart McLean’s stories and you want to see a ridiculous twist on a Canadian legacy. Fifty Shades of Dave is all of those things.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Your dad, pretending to be Superman, in just his red unders.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

Beaver Dreams. Clowns and puppets and beavers, oh my.
