pam poovey

Amber Nash, Brendan Hunter, Mark Meer, Belinda Cornish, and Stephanie Wolfe appear at Happy Harbor Comics on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 from 5:00 till 7:00 PM! 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.

SUPPORT THE EDMONTON FOOD BANK!
Donate $1 for each autograph or selfie with each celebrity!
100% of the money (or non-perishable items (2lbs=$1)) will given to the Food Bank!

* THE HOP-CADE *
* * * * * * * *

We’re taking the giant plot behind building 12 (aka the garden bar) and turning it into the HOP-CADE! Our dream of creating an outdoor arcade and beer garden from last year has been realized.

We’ll have:
* Only IPAs on tap
* Our oversized lawn games (Jenga, Connect Four, etc)
* Two pinball machines (The Twilight Zone and Theatre of Magic)
* Donkey Kong
* Ms. Pac-Man
* A Skee-ball machine

Not enough? How about an arcade game with a 25-foot screen driven from a used beer barrel converted into a vintage arcade console? This last feat will be created by our friend Hunter Bond, Troll Slayer and resident Pinball Mechanic at J!NX, with custom metal routing by San Diego’s reproHAUS.
