“Moose in a Top Hat” Millennium Place – Friday Dec28

Moose joke #126

What is a moose’s favourite thing to put on a hot dog?


The Whistler Arts Council is pleased to welcome four celebrated performers as they premiere their new collaboration “Moose in a Top Hat, the ultimate show of comedy, mystery and magic.”

More accustomed to the Vegas circuit than Whistler’s mountains, the performers will bring their Vaudeville-style acts to Millennium Place on Friday, December 28 in two shows, a matinee for kids and an evening show for grown-ups.

The performers include funny man Matthew Johnson, mentalist Christopher Taylor and magicians Trevor and Lorena Watters.
At the family matinee show children will meet Professor T who brings to life the magic all around us. Kids of all ages will appreciate the crazy antics of balloon-twisting funny man Matthew Johnson, more commonly known in Whistler as that tattooed balloon guy from the Children’s Arts Festival. A show highlight will be when Trevor appears to saw his wife Lorena in two.

The adult show features mindreading and more comedy and magic, all with a grown-up dose of humour.
