James Gangl Remounts Toronto Fringe 2011 Hit Sex, Religion & Other Hang-ups Oct 3 - 22

From a media release:


• Gangl self-finances a 3-Week run of his show October 3 to 22, 2011 to increase the odds of finding true love.  Chris Gibbs directs as Gangl leaves his heart on Theatre Passe Muraille’s Mainspace stage!

[Toronto, ON] –  Sex, Religion & Other Hang-ups, is about a guy with a ravenous sexual libido (Gangl) battling it out against a guy with a staunch Catholic upbringing (also Gangl) over the heart of a sexy, insightful underwear model (not Gangl) that he meets at his first professional acting gig, a commercial shoot for Coors Light.

Gangl tells the story in the hopes that the right lady will date him after the show.  Fringe sensation and solo-show veteran, Chris Gibbs directs, mining the universal truths in Gangl's twisted and touching true story. 

Sex, Religion & Other Hang-ups was voted Patron’s Pick at the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival and Now Magazine awarded the show “Outstanding Production” and Gangl “Outstanding Performance.”  James Gangl also won the first annual Ed Mirvish Award for Entrepreneurship for highest percentage of tickets sold… the entire run was sold-out!  Gangl is a decorated improviser nominated for 3 Canadian Comedy Awards including Best Male Improviser and is co-creator of the smash indie film night My Tapes.

Gibbs has directed himself in a number of Fringe hits including Like Father, Like Son? Sorry, Antoine Feval and Gibberish.  Gibbs won a Canadian Comedy Award along with The Carnegie Hall Show for Best Improv Troupe and has been called "One of the funniest guys around" by the National Post.  Gibbs thinks that Gangl is another one of those funny guys... just not as funny as him.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
