Monkey Toast is a 6-time Canadian Comedy Award winner! At each show, host and Second City alum David Shore interviews different celebrity guests. After each interview, the focus shifts to the Monkey Toast Players who use the interview as inspiration for their improvised scenes. The show then jumps back and forth from interview to improv to build a unique and hilarious show.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.

'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).
