Success 5000: Live On Stage



Even the program for this show is entertaining in itself: there’s a black and white stretched out jpeg of a dog in the middle with no explanation. Success 5000 guitarist and singer Robyn Slack picks it up in the middle of the show and questions the dog and why there’s six different fonts and typos. Success 5000 is a comedy sketch performance with self-depreciating, nihilistic, and sarcastic humour that’s both current and genuinely hilarious. Duo Slack and Josh Coss quip between songs and poke fun at each other, but mostly at the fact that Slack writes all of their music. They perform classic hits as “Grandma” (“Grandma is a f*cking racist!”), “Pretty Big Deal” (they were on CBC once and met Peter Mansbridge’s assistant Greg!) and new song “I Wanna Eat Everything.” The show is worth checking out for two grown men picking fun at each other between laugh-out-loud nihilistic music—just try to keep up with the audience-driven “Pickle” song.
