Opening Night Celebration
The Chairmen • Obey the Chair!
Yes, Chairman Bob and Chairman Jim are known for mayhem. Now, as a public service, the Chairmen want to alert you to the lurking dangers of patio furniture. These guys know scary. Throwing fire? Done that. Sky-high tightwire? Been there. Losing your pants onstage and revealing your pink Hello Kitty boxers to a room full of merciless nine-year-olds? Check! But the Chairmen say such nightmares are nothing compared to the terror of... the CHAIR-iot. Insert scary organ music here!
White plastic stacking chairs are found all over the world, yet no one knows about the secret life of the ubiquitous lawn fixtures. Flyin’ Bob Palmer (the Festival’s resident CEO of silliness) and his cohort James O’Shea are on a global mission to change all that. We are delighted to present their hilarious show in this special Saskatoon engagement – after our Festival they are off to Dublin, Ireland in their quest to reveal the hidden secrets of the chair! Catch them (literally) in their home town as they open the Festival on Saturday night.
