Winnipeg Press Club Collection

  • CA UWA 15.007
  • Collection
  • 1953, 1956-1960, 1963-1967

The collection consists of eleven programs for a satirical show called "Beer and Skits", which was created by the Winnipeg Press Club (WPC) and the Sock and Buskin Club. The event started as the WPC "Smoker" in 1933-1934 and it adapted the name "Beer and Skits" on its program in 1945. The show provided an important social and professional bridge between newsmen, the judiciary and the constabulary. Nate Zimmerman, a theatre critic for the Winnipeg Tribune, set the rules for "Beer and Skits" which were no smut, no religion and no women. These rules remained in effect until 1983, the show's 50th anniversary, when women picketed the show which attracted national news coverage. When women were allowed to join the club in 1984, "Beer and Skits" went through some evolutionary changes.

"Beer and Skits" ended just shy of its 75th anniversary. However, cast and crew wanted to keep the show going and in 2008, the BS Comedy Players Incorporated, a non-profit group, continued the show. The Press Club claims that "Beer and Skits" still currently stands as North America's longest running revue.
