Toronto, ON – 01/05/2012 – Revel Theatre Collective’s dungeon is so crammed with talent that it’s forced to expand to fit the likes of Big in Japan for the May 6th edition of its Sunday night improv showcase Piece of Garbage Sex Dungeon: A Night of Sophisticated Comedy. The night features a mixed bag of improvisers ranging from relative newcomers to the longstanding troupe Big in Japan.
The May 6th show will be hosted by stand-up Sarah Hennessey who has garnered a cult following in the city through her smart-alecky style. The night will feature improv by the Improvniacs (Dwayne Mailman, Tracy Rowland, Amanda Skinner, Jessica Williams) and the Puns of Brixton (Joe Delfin, Matthew Landry, Mark MacDonald, Mickey MadDonald).
Headlining the night is Big in Japan (Jess Grant, Ken Hall, Kevin Thom). Big in Japan has been a staple in the Toronto improv scene for the past several years and has represented the city at improv festivals all over Canada and the United States. Its current permutation combines seasoned and strong performers with varied experience in solo improv and sketch comedy.
Every edition of Piece of Garbage Sex Dungeon: A Night of Sophisticated Comedy is capped off with an all-out totally improvised comedy jam session. At the door audience members are encouraged to put their names in a draw so they can win a chance to join the cast. Not only will they have the chance to play with some of Toronto’s hottest improvisers, winners will also get their money back from the door. It could be you!
Piece of Garbage Sex Dungeon: A Night of Sophisticated Comedy happens every Sunday at artist-run venue Unit 102 (376 Dufferin Street) located on the edge of Parkdale. Tickets are $5. After the show audience members are invited to join the cast at a nearby watering hole to keep the party going.
