Hungry For Local Entertainment?
The Sampler is a fast-paced comedy contest — where performers have a limited time to win over the audience. Feed your competitive spirit while getting morsels of local comedy.
The Sampler Game Show – March 14th, 2016
Your vote will determine who makes it from amuse-bouche, to appetizer, to full course meal. Cheer loudly so they can get their just desserts — the headline spot at a future show!
This round of The Sampler will be hosted by the charming and engaging Korri Birch (stand-up comedian, Good News, Toronto, 4 Litres of Orange Juice). If you’ve seen his news show, you’ll know that you’re in for a treat.
Come cheer these competing comedians:
- Daphney Joseph (stand-up comedian, Coko & Daphney)
- TacoCheetah (improv – Zohaib Khan, Raj Vaidyaraj, Kaleb Brown, Arun Kirunpanathan, Malcolm Bonner, Jayson Malcolm)
- Aaron Wry (stand-up comedian)
- Humble Thunder (improv – Jacqueline Twomey, Brittney Drysdale, Kaleb Brown, Nina Adler)
- Velvet Duke (musical improv, The Dandies)
Headliner: Solo sketch/improv comedian Moniquea Marion won the first ever The Sampler and has earned her headliner prize, but I would have booked her anyway. Moniquea is a veteran performer and comes up with great characters. You may have seen Moniquea Marion 365, her current webseries, and Mumsical, her 2015 Toronto Fringe show.
