Here's an All-Canadian Roadshow live performance involving theatre, music, and storytelling based on the original works of the Dumbells, a Canadian concert party (considered to be pioneers of sketch comedy) who entertained the troops on the front line in WWI.

If nationhood was won on the crest of Vimy Ridge, it was the Dumbells who provided the country with its earliest soundtrack. The soldier-entertainers’ journey from Vimy to Vaudeville is now celebrated by award-winning author and two-time Juno Award-nominee Jason Wilson in the new musical-play Soldiers of Song. In it, Wilson is assisted by Canadian storyteller Lorne Brown, Toronto stage actors Jim Armstrong and Andrew Knowlton, and Marcus Ali and Patrice Barbanchon.
