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. "Serious comedic heavyweights" (Toronto Star) "NNNN" (Now Magazine) "Pure confidence... surefire comedy" (Mooney on Theatre )

Sarah Hillier (Second City) and Jess Bryson (Bad Dog Theatre) are the dynamic improv duo Wine Time. Fun, outrageous and full of heart, these real life friends and real life improvisers have 30+ years of improv experience between them.

The Lusty Mannequins are Ashley Comeau, Alastair Forbes, Karen Parker, and Connor Thompson: the Four Horsemen of the Comedy Apocalypse!* All four are alumni of the Second City Mainstage in Toronto, combining for over 60 years of comedy experience. They have taught and performed the world over, from Bratislava to Barcelona, from London to the Gulf of Mexico (aboard a cruise ship). In 2016 they co-founded the Mama City Improv Festival in Cape Town, helping to create the first ever international improv festival on the African Continent. They have appeared in commercials and TV shows and films and have sung with symphonies and written plays and podcasts, alongside folks like John Cleese, Robin Duke, Martin Short, Colin Mochrie, and the Kids in the Hall.
