On May 26th, GIANTS VI: THE FINALE will feature one of Vancouver’s most charming improv duos. Christine Bortolin and Bita Joudaki are Sister Act. There have been some tensions in the group of late, manly caused by Joudaki’s proclivity for running off with sport-related mascots, but they’re staying together for the kids.
Hip.Bang! are an improv duo from the 1940′s. They are now very very old but as funny as ever.
Made up of Tom “Donnie” Hill and Devin “Rollie” Mackenzie, Hip.Bang! has delighted audiences across North America for close to 70 years. From their days as Victoria’s ‘Pick of the Fringe’ in 1948 to their legendary New York City boxcar performances of the early ’50s, this charming improv always brings their trademark blend of honest storytelling, raw comedic spirit and extremely wrinkled faces.
It might be your last time to catch these legends of improv before they succumb to pancreatic cancer (Devin) and terminal osteoporosis (Tom). Get your tickets now for Hip.Bang’s March 24th performance at GIANTS V: MURDER BY DEATH!
Chris Casillan and Jeff Gladstone are DuoTone, a pair of veteran Vancouver performers who fuse improv comedy with sick guitar solos. Catch them shred, improvise and serenade at GIANTS IV: EPIC SEX ED on February 18th! Casillan is also the star of the latest instalment of ‘The Quest for the Holy Tail’.
