“Like a well-balanced breakfast, Egg Zeppelin is equal parts improv, slacker humour and fan-boy obsessive, set at a greasy spoon where the only licks on order are Jimmy Page’s.” – Globe and Mail

Egg Zeppelin is a 2-person, long-form improvisational comedy show. From audience suggestions, the comedy duo of Kris Siddiqi and Marcel St. Pierre create a spontaneous hour in the lives of Dude and Man, the owner-operators of a dilapidated greasy spoon in a non-specific, small Canadian town just a few hours on the Trans-Canada Highway, halfway between ‘here’ and ‘there’.

They cook. They talk rock, politics, history, philosophy, or whatever their local early-morning talk-jock suggests. They play guitar, sing songs and dish out all-day breakfast and advice to whoever drops in – usually someone stuck at a literal or figurative crossroad on the way to a gig.

Add to that a musical segment that features a revolving door of musical guests, who literally sing for their breakfasts as per the house rule posted above the grill:  IF YOU CAN PLAY, YOU DON’T PAY.

In addition to a healthy serving of laughs and lyrics – at least one full all-day breakfast is actually ordered, cooked and served as part of each and every show. No substitutions are allowed.


Created by and starring Marcel St. Pierre and Kris Siddiqi and directed by 3-time Canadian Comedy-Award winner Lisa MerchantEgg Zeppelin premiered in February 2010 as a live show at Toronto’s Bad Dog Theatre Company, and featured top comics and special musical guests — like The Frantics’ Peter Wildman, rising stars like indie music ingenue Allie Hughes, folk musician Jory Nash and Halifax’s own hip-hop favourite, Wordburglar.

The show was also shortlisted (from over 140 competing submissions) and performed at Toronto’s Comedy Bar in August 2010 as a finalist in Insight Entertainment’s ‘Pilot Week’ showcase – a week-long festival of 30-minute pilot proposals performed live on stage.

Egg Zeppelin – The Improvised Bacon, Music and Comedy Show. It’s a 60-minute live stagemash-up about friendship that blends old-school horse sense with coffee and bacon and a ‘Whole Lotta Love’.

Tickets: $12/$10 students and are available at the door.
