Comments: Childhood working on the carney-circuit – Check! Improv training at Loose Moose Theatre in Calgary – Check! Hundreds upon hundreds of hours doing street shows around the globe – Check! Absolute fearlessness in the pursuit of what might just be funny – Absolutely! Eric Amber’s entire existence seems to revolve around the basic idea behind all good improv ‘stay positive and say yes to everything’ as you’ll hear in this week’s episode.

    Every time I go to get my street permit in Calgary I speak to the same lady. 15 years I have spoken to this same lady about getting my permit. I know her name, I’m very friendly and she NEVER remembers who I am or what my show is. She always insists that I audition for her.
    When I told her that I do a comedy magic show and she told me “we don’t allow comedy” I laughed in her face and called her Hitler. Why would I have thought she was serious? who the hell bans COMEDY!
    Any way yeah I scribbled over comedy and got my licence, and ever since that is exactly what I put on my application to renew my permit.
    I will never surrender to this city, I will fight for street performers till this city changes back to the way it was in the 90’s. That’s what inspired me to become who I am, I would hate it if I couldn’t return the favour.
