Headlined by REBECCA KOHLER (Workin’ Moms, Just For Laughs)!

With the face of an angel and the tongue of razor, Rebecca Kohler is full of surprises.
Life is hard, sometimes tragic, and Rebecca is no stranger to these realities; in fact she uses life’s hardships and truths to create well crafted joke-story-type-things. Rebecca brings an edgy insight to the stage and asks you to remember that she is not offensive, but that life itself is offensive.

Rebecca just finished writing for CBC’s Workin’ Moms, with other credits including Just For Laughs Festival, Hubcap Comedy Festival, opened for Norm MacDonald, Dana Carvey (and more), Winnipeg Comedy Fest, Halifax Comedy Fest, CTV’s Comedy Now, The Sudbury Comedy Festival, The Newfoundland Screech Comedy Festival, Los Angeles Comedy Festival, and regularly headlines Yuk Yuks across Canada.

She’s also made appearances on CBC’s The Debaters (Radio/TV), The L.A. Complex, Hotboxand The Jon Dore Television Show, Video On Trial and XM Radio’s Laugh Attack. As a writer, she’s written on The Ron James Show, Scaredy Squirrel and This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and more.

A Canadian Comedy Award winner, she’s been in JFL, JFL 42, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Halifax Comedy Festival, Calgary Comedy Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the New Zealand International Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Iceland Comedy Festival.

Stand Up by Jackie Pirico

Jackie Pirico has taken the Toronto comedy scene by storm with her peculiar voice, oddball material and disarming style. She has recently become the newest member of Laugh Sabbath – Toronto’s longest-running and most prestigious stand-up collective – where she writes and performs comedy and character work for packed houses and buzzing crowds. Jackie has been featured on popular festival lineups across the country and has performed in New York in Los Angeles.

Improv by K$M

K$M is Kirsten Rasmussen and Matt Folliott (and of course a dollar sign). Kirsten and Matt have been performing together for four years, and their aggressive fast paced style was born out of slaughtering houses at Catch23 on the regular. They’ve toured to Vancouver for the International Improv Festival and to Montreal Improv Festival to great acclaim and were nominated for Best Improv Troupe in the 2015 Canadian Comedy Awards.

Matt Folliott is sought after coach, teacher and has toured North American improv festivals extensively with his groups S&P and ChadMallet.

Kirsten Rasmussen is hot off the Second City Toronto Mainstage where she wrote and performed three shows, she is a co-founder of the Montreal Improv Theatre and has toured all over Canada, to New York, Chicago, the Carribbean, Berlin and Australia performing her solo shows and improvising. Dollar Sign is money, and we all love money.
