Award-Winning Sketch Comedy Troupe TALLBOYZ II MEN Make Toronto Fringe Festival DEBUT!
From press release
TallBoyz II Men is a diverse group of comedians being diverse diversely. Measuring in at a whopping 25’2″ (collectively), this troupe aims to take sketch comedy to new heights! TallBoyz II Men make their Toronto Fringe Festival debut with their hard-hitting, hilariously insightful, full length sketch comedy revue: “A 6IX NNNNNN Revue”!
In 2017 the troupe won Producers’ Pick at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival, Best Newcomer at the Montreal Sketchfest, and were selected to perform at the Big City Improv Festival and OFF-JFL. This year the Boyz returned to the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival to win Most Outstanding Short and were personally selected by Kids in the Halls’ Bruce McCulloch to be his opener. They continued their winning streak in their return to the Montreal Sketchfest by being crowned this years’ “Best of the Fest”.
Individually they’ve also had amazing years. TIM BLAIR returns to the Fringe after playing Winston Zeddemore in last year’s festival favourite SHAKESPEARE’S GHOSTBUSTERS. FRANCO NGUYEN comes back after his critically-acclaimed, sold-out show GOOD MORNING VIET MOM. VANCE BANZO recently made his feature film debut with INDIAN HORSE, executive produced by CLINT EASTWOOD. GULED ABDI will be there too.
Nothing is off limits or out of reach. Count on these four “Boyz” to tell it like it is, unapologetically.
