Are you ready to Fringe with us?

All dressed up for Fringe. Join us!

This month we’ve been busy getting ready for our performances at this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival. Assaulted Fish: Sacred and Profane is one-hour of our favourite sketches and it’s a chance to celebrate our 10-year anniversary with many of you who have supported us through the decade.

We have six shows beginning on September 6 at Studio 16 (1555 West 7th Avenue , between Granville & Fir). For a full list of performance dates and times, visit

Ticket prices vary from $10-$12 depending on whether you purchase in advance or on-site (cash only). There’s also a mandatory, one-time $5 Vancouver Fringe membership you’ll need to purchase if our show is the first one you see at the festival.

Get a Deal!
Our opening night performance on Friday, September 6 is half-price! It’s the perfect way to bring along new friends and guests for a Fishy experience.

Get a Fishy Tee!
While on-site, drop by and say hello to our publicist, Linda Ong Chan. She’ll be selling Assaulted Fish t-shirts ($25, cash only) and asking theatre guests to share their favourite Fishy moments via her iPhone.

Get Social!
Help us promote our Fringe show by tweeting (or RTing our tweets) and linking to our Facebook page, using any of these hashtags: #assaultedfish #vanfringe. If you want to pen a review of our show, feel free to post to the Vancouver Fringe fan page at

Pork Filled Fun!


The Pork Filled Players demonstrate one way to draw a crowd.

It’s June and that means it’s “Seattle Sketch Comedy Month”, at least according to those genial folks who bring you SketchFest™ Seattle. What this means is for every weekend this month you get to see Seattle sketch comedy troupes ply their trade at the Ballard Underground (assuming you are in Seattle, of course. The geographically challenged of us will have to stew in our envy). Of course no Seattle line-up would be complete without our Southern cousins the Pork Filled Players who have a few shows lined up for this weekend. Go check them out now!

Powell Street Festival: Here We Come!

Funnier in person

The Fishies are returning to the Powell Street Festival for the ninth year running!

We’ll be performing highlights from our recent show in Seattle. It’s a FREE 30-minute show featuring a pair of passionate pitchmen, two royals battling for supremacy, and a couple of scientists confronting more than giant atomic terror beasts. We’ll also present a fresh take on David Henry Hwang’s seminal 1980 play, F.O.B.

Won’t you join us?
