Racial stereotypes, ethnic clichés and culture differences will be at the forefront on Wednesday, Oct. 17, as the Boone Saloon hosts what’s been hailed as one of North America’s most entertaining multicultural comedic showcases, “The Most RACES Show on Earth! (MRSOE!).”

MRSOE! is a stand-up comedy show that examines racial and ethnic differences through the lens of laughter. After selling out numerous venues in Canada and the United States since 2005, MRSOE! is embarking on its first tour across the southeastern U.S. The show in Boone is one of 16 stops.

“The Most RACES Show on Earth! helps us to better understand one another,” said Neil Bansil, creator and producer of MRSOE!. “The barriers between cultures cannot be easily dissolved; sometimes it’s actually the shock value of a lot of the jokes that inspires people to start thinking. The more we realize our differences, the more we are the same because we all laugh at the same things.”

This show features a cast of five funny and edgy comedians from various ethnicities, Bansil said, including Noah Gardenswartz (Jewish-American – 2012 Bay Area Comedy Competition semi-finalist); Viet Huynh (Vietnamese-American – 2009 Southeastern Funny People Search winner); Landry (Jamaican-Canadian – 2012 World Series of Comedy winner); Trixx (Ghanaian-Canadian – N.Y. Comedy Festival); and Bansil (Filipino-Canadian-American – creator of MRSOE!).

The Most RACES Show on Earth! takes place on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 9 p.m., at the Boone Saloon. Tickets are $5 and are available at the door. A portion of the proceeds from each show will go toward the YWCA Stand Against Racism initiative. For tickets, visit http://www.mrsoe.com or visit the Boone Saloon at 489 West King St. in downtown Boone.
