Gallery: Sunday Night Live – Big City Improv Festival Edition

The Big City Improv Festival – the first of two improv festivals in Toronto this month (it’s a long story) – kicked off at Comedy Bar this weekend.

Guests Jerry Minor (Saturday Night Live, Mr. Show) and Steve Little (East Bound and Down) lent their talents to whole slew of opening weekend shows, topping it off by co-hosting Sunday Night Live.

Playing two superhero “besties”, a couple of sizzle-before-steak lawyers, and a pair fraudulent Milli Vanilli-style R&B stars, Minor and Little were fully game to roll up their sleeves and embrace whatever ridiculousness the Sketchersons threw their way.

The Big City Improv Festival continues all week at Comedy Bar, topped off with performances next weekend by headliners Ted & Melanie (Jet Eveleth and SNL’s Paul Brittain).
