The County's Artisanal Comedy Troupe: TASTE THAT!

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.

A sweet night was had by all who showed up to the Cherry Valley Strawberry Social last evening.  Locals and visitors alike enjoyed fresh local strawberries from Laundry Farms paired with home-baked goodies with dollops of  icecream.  There were even gluten-free and vegan options too!

As they say……. the proof is in the pudding or should we say cake?
