FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!
This all female-identifying longform troupe was founded at the start of 2019 as part of The Assembly, Toronto’s only game-based longform improv company. Fire! Fire! Fire! are known for their high-energy, no apologies, big support improv, you can expect these gals to set any stage on fire!

The Dirtbag Cousins are a sketch and improv troupe who bring quick and high energy scenes to the stage through a combination of scripted and improvised character pieces. They love and encourage audience participation during their act and welcome whatever may happen. Catch them at their monthly show every last Sunday of the month at Comedy Bar.
James is a regular competitor and runner-up in countless comedy competitions. James O’Hara is becoming a staple in the Toronto comedy scene. He has been a fan of stand-up comedy since long before he understood the jokes. He would just laugh whenever his dad laughed. Now, he is all over the GTA telling jokes he thinks will make his dad chuckle. Trained in improv, acting, sketch writing, and third-person bio writing, he has got it all. His brand of self-deprecation and wordplay makes him a unique blend that will surely make you say, “You’re doing great James”.
Jackie was named by Exclaim! Magazine as a quickly rising force in comedy and an “adept comic scene stealer” by The Hollywood Reporter. Jackie Pirico delights audiences with her oddball material and disarming style. Catch her Just for Laughs television taping on The Comedy Network, her segment Pet Trialz on Viceland TV, or see her live with the prestigious Toronto comedy collective Laugh Sabbath.
