In 2003, Second City Alumnus and (future) Academy Award winning actor, Alan Arkin taught a 3-day improv Master Class in Toronto. This class was a life changing experience for most of its participants. Based on an exercise from this class, Monkey Toast creator David Shore came up with an idea for new improv format and began work-shopping it with the MT Players upon his return from the UK. The result of that workshop was The Arkin.

Plus, we’ll be joined by special friend, award winning comedian, Sandra Battaglini!
