What: Can you tell the difference between three types of beer from a smell test? Do you type your university essays out on a typewriter? Have you ever claimed that you are a ninth-generation direct descendant of the inventor of the bicycle? Barry can. Barry would. Barry has.

Artisanal Intelligence is proud to introduce the next wave in A.I. customer service: Barry - the perfect fit for all your too-cool for school business needs! 

Written by ira cooper and starring Hannah Everett and Drew Carlson, Artisanal Intelligence is a comedy with original music about a hipster customer service robot named Barry. Barry knows a little about many topics, plays folk-pop ukulele tunes, can memorize reasonable-length coffee orders (2 paragraph minimum), and doesn't mind being stored in awkward crawl spaces.

In 2019, the show was performed at the Regina, Edmonton and Prince Edward Island International Fringes, sold out five shows, received 4 1/2 stars from the Edmonton Journal, 4 stars from Global TV, and was one of The Buzz PEI's "favorite Fringe plays of all time."


Run time: 55 minutes

Tickets ($15) available here.
