Created and Performed by Bruce McCulloch

Bruce McCulloch, a member of The Kids in the Hall, is back with his world premier of Dark Purple Slice, a one-man show that moves brilliantly between funny, relatable and surprisingly touching. Using music, stand-up, and storytelling, Bruce McCulloch takes us on a poetic flyover of his life “pursuing stories” and makes an unspoken agreement with the audience to contemplate the world together. 

Slice combines Bruce’s knack for effin’ funny observations with his humanistic yearnings and the way he uses gallows humour to get through the dark times. Looking at life as an outsider, Bruce observes the way we reach outward and inward, and his struggle against his own internal pessimism to see the beauty and joy in life.

Exclusive! A VIP Meet & Greet with Bruce is available as an add-on to the Friday, February 2nd performance of Dark Purple Slice only! After the show, you will be escorted backstage to meet and take a photo with the star. (The option to add this experience will appear during the check-out process.)
