Four Tall Boyz. Two Festivals. One Green Party Leader. Three Cheers for October Live Comedy!

Four tall comedians, a MPP, a “rival” improv troupe, and two freaking festivals. October is going to be an epic month. You’re still reading this intro? Stop it. There’s comedy to check out..

FRI. OCT 5 - M-B COMEDY #143: HEADLINERS FT. TALLBOYZ II MEN

For the first-time ever we’re hosting a sketch troupe on Headliners! The four members of TallBoyz II Men stand-in at a whopping 25’2”, and have even taller credits including JFL42, CBC and best of the fest at Toronto and Montreal Sketchfest. Laugh, cry and crane your necks skyward as you watch their scripted comedy magic.

The one. The only. The first-elected Provincial Green Party candidate in Ontario and leader of the Ontario Greens, Mike Schreiner, is stopping by for a night of candid interviews and improv comedy. We’ll chat with our new MPP about Guelph, life, and green things, which will inspire on-the-spot comedy from The Making-Box Brigade.

FRI. OCT 12 (LATE SHOW) - M-B COMEDY #151: THE FUTURE IS FUNNY (EPISODE 4) - HOLY SMOKES MUSIC FESTIVAL EDITION

FRI. OCT 26 - M-B COMEDY #153: THE MAKING-BOX V.S. THEATRE ON THE EDGE

MB VS TOTE.jpg

It’s a Tri-City showdown. Guelph vs. Waterloo. Royal City vs. New Berlin. Good vs. Evil. Theatre on the Edge (TOTE) is Waterloo’s band of wiley improvisers and we’ve challenged them to throw down on our home turf. For some foolish reason, they’ve accepted. We’ll be improvising in a high-intensity showdown to the death. Or until 10:30, whatever comes first.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
