  • Patrick Hercamp & Jon Bennett in New Show, BUTT different – Patrick Hercamp and Jon Bennett, Lost Angeles and Australia

Visit www.winnipegfringe.com/ for show times and tickets.

Oh, and if you don’t think it matters to them that you will be in the audience, here’s an email from performer Penny Ashton – “Well hello, here I am googling myself like an egomaniac and your Southern Yarn pops up! How have I never seen you guys before, lol. This will be my 7th Winnipeg Fringe, and the lone Kiwi flying the flag this year I think indeed. Just thought I’d say thanks a lot for the mention, I hope to get some Kiwis along to the show. Ka Kite, Penny.”

Of course she also means Aussies  … 🙂 … so be sure to say kia ora and g’day when you go!
