The BS Comedy Players were incorporated in 2008 to preserve a 75-year Winnipeg tradition of political satire, musical, sketch comedy, started by the Winnipeg Press Club (WPC) and known by many appreciative local audiences as Beer & Skits.
While similar shows sprouted up on university campuses and among professional organizations around the country, the WPC’s Beer & Skits remained true to its original mandate of lampooning local, national and international politicians and celebrities and inviting them to the show to face the music.
Over the years, a committed group of amateur actors, singers and stage crew, professional musicians and a team of dedicated volunteers staged Beer & Skits on behalf of the WPC. When the WPC was no longer capable of mounting the show, this talented cast and crew, by now a close-knit family group, decided to continue the tradition and lead it into the future.
...and so the BS Comedy Players Inc. was born!
