The County's Artisanal Comedy Troupe: TASTE THAT!


Taste That is thrilled to be the host company for the Comedy Country Summer Comedy Series.

The County’s Artisanal Comedy Troupe: TASTE THAT! is a ragtag group of Prince Edward County residents that include  a beekeeper, a councilLor, a painter, an innkeeper, and two comedy producers. The group is well-known regionally for their semi-monthly shows, and their annual Christmas comedy productions (It’s a Wonderful ‘New’ Life, The Nightmare After Christmas, No Room at the Inn) that take an irreverent look at life in Prince Edward County. Their shows feature a hilarious mix of improv and scripted comedy including their signature recurring segment, The County Roundup – a local newsdesk that earns bigtime laughs at small-town news.
