So lucky to have a chat with Dionna Griffin-Irons during a short trip to Toronto. If you haven't heard her story, settle in for a fascinating talk with the current Director of Diversity and Inclusion at The Second City Chicago. Also, find out why we were in a shower together! #YasKweenTo
As part of Big City Improv Festival, we held a panel discussion feature 9 incredible women to talk about their journey in comedy. Featuring: Jan Caruana, Ify Chiwetelu, Monica Heisey, Allison Hogg, Lisa Merchant, Maribeth Monroe, Jaime Moyer, Paloma Nunez, and Jenn Whalen.
A fun old chit chat with Heather MacDonald, Toronto Stand Up darling. We talk about growing up in small town Ontario, the word "exotic" as a descriptor of humans, and the magical powers of Welch's grape flavoured frozen juice pops.
A good gab sesh with Aisha Brown, the fabulous Stand Up and member of comedic rap group Runnin' at the Mouth. We talk about what it's like on the comedy scene for a woman, unspoken racism in Toronto, and the truth about anxiety hawks.
A brand new chat with Coko, 1/2 of the improv duo Coko & Daphney and Yas Kween mainstay! We discuss the Toronto improv scene, cultural influences that have shaped her comedic sensibilities, and finding your way to your authentic voice.
A talk with Rakh! We discuss the fun of sketch and improv comedy, knowing your funny, and taking the leap to become a professional Actor when you have a perfectly good University degree in Not-Acting.
Layin it down with the tremendously funny, ballsy and be-glittered Ann Pornel! We discuss her journey to Tour Co at Second City, being a bold woman on the comedy scene, and advice for those stepping into the game.
