Event description

Description

Come and laugh off the last of your resolutions with comedy and music at the SHENANIGANS comedy night, featuring your hosts The Coincidence Men! This month their guests include comedians Faisal Butt and Jackie Pirico with sketch from TallBoyz II Men, with musical guests Captain Cowboy & The Money-Maker!

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

TALLBOYZ II MEN aim to take sketch comedy to new heights! Measuring in at a whopping 25'2" (collectively), this troupe has quite the perspective to share! Featuring Tim Blair, Vance Banzo, Franco Nguyen and Guled Abdi, their collective credits include JFL42, Comedy Brawl, CBC Radio, NOW Magazine and The Colin Mochrie Improvisation Award.

JACKIE PIRICO developed a passion for comedy while working as a waitress at Montreal’s Comedy Nest to pay for her degree in linguistics at Concordia. She eventually discovered that the comedy chops she’d developed as a busker were her strongest draw as a performer. Credits include Just For Laughs, Bitch Salad, ALTDot and she’s a co-host and producer of the Laugh Sabbath collective.

FAISAL BUTT is sure some people find him funny but his name is also hilarious; it’s probably why started doing stand up. He regularly tours across the country and has filmed his first comedy special for the ichannel. In 2014 he was the winner of the Sirius XM "Top Comic" and then featured in the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal as well as a solo show during JFL42 inToronto. He was also in the Bordertown and Oddball comedy festivals and recently taped an episode for “The Debaters” on CBC. He also has a beard.

CAPTAIN COWBOY & THE MONEY MAKER is a duo that is very serious about keeping things silly, and committed to musical tomfoolery. Described by INSPADES Magazine as “Old time folk and Americana played at a ragtime pace, rounded by jazzy vocals and a gritty finish. They animate the stories of forgotten songs in a way that sparks a smile and inspires applause". Founded in the subways of Toronto by Alex Shaw (Captain Cowboy) and Dayna Pirso (The Money Maker) they transcend time and space, riding a tall wave of euphoric laughter and classic entertainment. Must be seen to be believed!

ABOUT YOUR HOSTS

With 100 years of collective comedy experience between them, THE COINCIDENCE MEN are Kerry Griffin, Ralph MacLeod, Gord Oxley and Marcel St. Pierre. Respected vets, teachers and coaches in Toronto’s improv, sketch and comedy “scene" since the early 1980s, they've been individually involved with Canadian Comedy Award-winning groups like Monkey Toast and Slap Happy and the sketch-comedy-Gemini-Award winning comedy duo Fast n Dirty. With appearances on CBC, The Comedy Network, YTV and more, they've been founding alumni and creative forces behind Toronto's much-loved Bad Dog Theatre Company. All are alums of Theatresports, three of them are Second City alums, and another one founded and runs The Social Capital Theatre. They have been described as "a roomful of Alan Aldas" as well as "Toronto's most grizzled improv troupe".
