A talk with Capt. Sig of ‘Deadliest Catch’

I just got off the phone with Sig Hansen, the captain of the Northwestern of "Deadliest Catch" fame.

He's coming to the INB Performing Arts Center for a stage show called "Deadliest Catch: An Evening with Capt. Sig and the Hillstrand Bros." on July 24 at the INB Performing Arts Center.

I'll write a full story based on the interview for the July 22 paper. But I thought I'd give you a few highlights:

  • He says the stage show is often more like a comedy show than anything else, with the captains having a lot of fun with audience questions. There will even be survival-suit race, with audience volunteers.
  • They've done this show in at least 35 other cities, to big crowds.
  • Capt. Sig has a new credit to his name: He's the voice of the boat Crabby in "Cars 2".
  • Capt. Sig also has a line of fish sticks, a brand of beer, a video game and a (soon) a restaurant in his name.
  • He's from Ballard (my favorite Seattle neighborhood),

Tickets range from $20 to $75 through Ticketswest.
