An evening of comedy and conversation in celebration of Colin Mochrie’s Not QUITE the Classics hosted by Al Rae and co-presented by the Winnipeg Comedy Festival.

Colin Mochrie has penned a collection of stories. Borrowing from a well-known improv game, Mochrie takes the first and last lines from familiar classics and reimagines everything in between. With the same engaging humour he exhibits on stage, television, and film, he takes the reader in bizarre and hilarious new directions.

He is best known for his roles in "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and "This Hour Has 22 Minutes", and as host of "Are You Smarter Than a Canadian 5th Grader?"
