QC – Step Aside, Pops Signing

qc-sap1

Cartoonist Kate Beaton appears at Rialto Hall on Sunday, September 27, 2015 at 7:00 PM! Tickets available at the link…

Step Aside, Pops is the sequel to the hit comic collection Hark! A Vagrant, which appeared on best of lists from Time, NPR, and USA Today; spent five months on the New York Times bestseller list; and won Harvey, Ignatz, and Doug Wright awards. Cartoonist Kate Beaton returns with all-new sidesplitting comics that showcase her irreverent love of history, pop culture, and literature. Collected from her wildly popular website, readers will guffaw over “Strong Female Characters”, the wicked yet chivalrous Black Prince, “Straw Feminists in the Closet,” and a disgruntled Heathcliff. Delight in what the internet has long known—Beaton’s humour is as sharp and dangerous as a velocipedestrienne, so watch out!

Amber is best known as the voice of Pam Poovey, the profoundly inappropriate Human Resource rep for the International Secret Intelligence Service on FX’s “ARCHER”

Nash will be in town with Dad’s Garage Theatre Company to present her one-woman show, “WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU?” at the 34th Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival.

In “What’s Wrong With You?” Amber faces the perplexing dilemma: what do you do when you don’t seem to fit into any mould? From gossipy old southern ladies to sassy lady wrestlers, and even James Lipton, she tells the story of her idiosyncratic journey one character at a time. And you can bet it’s going to be wickedly hilarious.
