Here is a little about each of the performers in the show.
“Watching DUO DAD perform is like watching an episode of kids say the darndest things, except it’s two dads.” – Matt Folliott, S&P, Chad Mallett, and current Canadian Comedy Award Nominee K$S. DUO DAD reminds us about the beautiful communication that can and does exist between father and son. They have performed at the Big City Improv Festival (Toronto), Nestival Festival (Columbus, OH), Boston Improv Festival, and in June will be at the Orlando Comedy Festival.
Sarah St. Fleur
Sarah, better known by her stage name Double XL, is unquestionably the long-awaited breath of fresh air emerging from Quebec’s comedy scene. Born in Montreal to Haitian parents, DoubleXL began her artistic career very early through multiple dance performances and hosting at numerous variety shows on local and international stages. Undeniably passionate, with a dynamic and straight to the point sense of humour DoubleXL exudes an electrifying stage presence that leaves no one indifferent.
Max got his start in comedy in the gritty scenes of Windsor and Detroit where he then toured the tri-state area quickly becoming known as one of the top rising comics. In 2017 he moved to Toronto where he has continued to make a name for himself. He was semi-finalists in both 2017 Border City Comedy Festival and 2018 Comedy brawl, and he won Sept 2018’s GoYukYourself. He also co-created the comedy group PlusTime Comedy which produces weekly online sketches and monthly live shows with a quickly growing fan base.
Angst 4 the Memories
A couple of 30 year old punks who really GET what the teens are going through is Angst 4 The Memories. All their shows come with a parental advisory: if you’re a parent, they advise you not to come. Get out of here, mom and dad! Let kids be kids! Punk rock! Fuck you!
