Shenanigans Comedy Night
October 13, 2018 @ 8:00 pm$8 tickets available at the door
It’s the October edition of SHENANIGANS COMEDY NIGHT with The Coincidence Men! A comedy-variety experience best served with MANY FINE BEVERAGES available at the bar! This month our guests features improv with duo LIFE AFTER LOVE (Alia De Santis, Amanda Parker) standup with MARC HALLWORTH and as always, your headliners The Coincidence Men!
Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Marc moved to Toronto in 2009 and has since been part of NXNE, YYComedy, FunnyFest, the Brantford Comedy Festival, “Funniest Clean Comedian on the Lakeshore”, and the Bollywood Monster Mashup, where he opened for Aparna Nancherla. He was the second place winner of the 2017 Flat Tire Comedy Competition, a semi-finalist in the 2017 Toronto Comedy Brawl and 2016 Prove You’re A Comic Competition, has appeared on SiriusXM Radio as part of “Canada Laughs,” and was chosen to host the Ontario Celebration Zone as part of the 2015 PanAm Games. His sketch troupe Vest of Friends are the winners of the Best-of-the-Fest Award at both the Toronto and Montreal SketchFests, and were named one of Bite.ca’s “10 Canadian Sketch Troupes You Need To See Right Now.” He is an improv tournament champion at both the TheatreSports Micetro and Toronto Beerprov, and got to be part of The BooProv Halloween Spooktacular with Colin Mocherie. With material that’s not out to offend, his few goofy ideas mixed among a ton of personal anecdotes all culminate towards a ton of laughs and some real optimism!
LIFE AFTER LOVE
Alia DeSantis and Amanda Parker are Toronto based comedians brought together by fate to remind us all there’s life after love. They’ve received training from Bad Dog Theatre, Social Capital Theatre and Second City. Watch out for them performing around Toronto as a duo and as part of the ensemble of Booze Clues, the improvised Hangover. Now ask yourself…Do you believe?
