Our last Improv night with Taste That and special guests SONGBUSTER was amazing.  Here are a few shots from that night of hilarity.

Sorry you missed it?  You should be.  Next show is August 19th featuring Soul Decision.

 

SOUL DECISION

Explore a world of characters and relationships with the award winning – high energy duo, Soul Decision. Watch Christian Smith & Kevin Vidal as they weave in narrative while smoothly transitioning from scene to scene. They’ll make you dance, cry and hopefully beatbox. Oh and they’ll make you laugh!

Soul Decision is made up of Kevin Vidal (nice guy) and Christian Smith (cool guy). They were recently named the “Best of the Fest” for the Toronto Sketch Comedy festival (2017) and performed in the “Best of the Fest” show in the Montreal Sketch Fest (2017). Christian is a Second City alumni of their House Company and understudies for their Touring Company. Christian & Kevin are currently in the online sketch show Tennyson Industries. Kevin is an alumni of the Second City Mainstage in Toronto. You can catch him on CBC’s Workin’ Moms and Kim’s Convenience. Both are actors and writers but most of all they’re nice boys.
