What is Girls Night In?
TALLBOYZ Season 3 debuts January 25th on CBCGEM
The hit CBC sketch comedy show Tallboyz debuts its third season on January 25th 2022 on CBC GEM.
The hilarious show is back for a third season to explore everything from office politics to daddy issues to making a deal with the Devil (played by Paul Sun-Hyung Lee). Measuring in at 25'2” collectively, Guled Abdi, Vance Banzo, Tim Blair and Franco Nguyen return to jab at popular culture from a very tall point of view.
I had the honour of being the Consulting Producer on this brilliant show and you may even see my mug in a few episodes. We ran the writers room over Zoom in a lockdown, it was so much fun and it shows in S3! Check it out here: https://gem.cbc.ca/ on January 25th 2022.
Mama City Improv Festival 2020
In March of 2020 the Mama City Improv Festival took place in Cape Town, South Africa. At the time we didn't know that this would be one of the last festivals to take place in person for a very long time.
We had outstanding performers from all over the globe. We collaborated, learned, taught, performed. Eva and I are so grateful to everyone who performed and participated in the festival both on and off stage.
Eva Gilliam (from Cape Town's The Long Shots), and Ashley produce this festival together from 1/2 way across the world! #MamaCityIF is Africa's first international improv festival - bringing top improvisers from all over the globe to the Mother City!
When it is safe to do so, we will be up and running again. Who knows when that will be, but until then, keep on laughing and connecting with each other. Much love.
