Following in the hilarious, puppet-heavy footsteps of GIANTS I, GIANTS II is set to blow the roof off The Cultch November 26th. We are proud to announce the line up will feature Pump Trolley, Morgan Brayton, Alicia Tobin, and the debut of RAP BATTLE with Sunday Service star Taz VanRassel (a.k.a. Tarz Vin Diesel). There are profiles and videos coming from the entire GIANTS II line up, but first we want to tell you more about the main event and the man behind it.
Get started by checking out the above piece from our video partners Weekend Leisure, who are channeling their love of nature, comedy and in this case sweet, sweet rocks in creating cool content on each of our guests. Hats off to WL for their work on this video, there’s more to come!
RAP BATTLE with “Tarz VinDiesel”
In the tradition of great comedy rap projects, our Centerpiece collaborator Taz VanRassel will introduce RAP BATTLE, a series of conceptual rap showdowns between the finest and funniest beat-smiths in the city. In one contentious night you will see such battles as Lions vs. The Moon, the EU vs Stable Economics, or even Cake vs. Pie. A full line up of MCs and conceptual battlegrounds will be announced in the lead up to the show, in the meantime grab your purple drink and get set for an awesome, rhyme-filled GIANTS II Centerpiece!
Fifteen year veteran and self proclaimed “Bratty Boy” of Vancouver’s comedy scene, Taz can be seen improvising across Canada, America, Europe and Australia. He is best known for his work with weekly improv shows The Sunday Service, Urban improv and Vancouver Theatresports league. With four Canadian Comedy Award nominations for “Best Male Improviser” ( including 2010) under his belt, Taz has solidified himself as a leading figure in Canada’s growing improv community. When not punching people in the face with comedy, he can be found teaching and directing his craft to people of all skill levels, race, gender and creed. Taz has collaborated and performed with the likes of Ryan Stiles (the Drew Carey show), David Cross (Arrested Development), Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad), Scott Adsit (30 Rock) and Oscar Nunez (the Office[US]).
